"Barbara is our guide for what appears to be a sort of theme-park installation portraying the end of civilization thousands of years earlier. She animates Jules and Jo by pulling levers and plays percussive accompaniment to the story's more dramatic moments, in a booth to the left of the 21st-century set. (Wilson Chin is the designer.)" – Ben Brantley, New York Times

"The stage curtain immediately pulls back to reveal Wilson Chin's impeccably detailed set." – John Del Signore, Gothamist

"The visual aesthetic of the play is fantastic. It looks beautiful, and the effects employed to highlight major shifts in plot are right on the money." – Matt Johnston, NY Theatre

"The amazingly detailed set is by Wilson Chin." – Matthew Murray, talkinbroadway.com
