"Wilson Chin's squalid sideshow of a set is as atmospheric and efficient as the occasion requires." – Ben Brantley, New York Times

"Wilson Chin's setting is lean, raw, spare; revealing, even with all its shadowy recesses. It is perfectly emblematic of a haunting production that lets a complicated musical about the dark, morally corrupt side of human nature speak for itself." – Jeffrey Borak, Berkshire Eagle

"Wilson Chin's shadowy set is perfect– and a character itself in this tale of revenge." – Ron Lee, XBRK Radio

"With a stripped-down but evocative set by Wilson Chin, this production has a distinctive look. It's part Grand Guignol, part modern minimalism, and wholly coherent and smart." – Louise Kennedy, The Boston Globe

"Wilson Chin's set is fantastic, a compendium of scaffolding, industrial lights and a rolling meat pie shop seems as if Street SceneThe Wizard of Oz and Chicago were involved in a car crash." – Michael Eck, Albany Times Union
