"A superb production, matched by a sophisticated production design. The room that will become King's tomb is as spectacularly bland as it should be. Wilson Chin decorates the space in hues of despair– thick, suffocating curtains and matching bed covers in rotting peach."– Andrea Simakis, The Plain Dealer

"The play's stark realism and deceptive simplicity turns metaphysical and hyper-theatrical, as does Wilson Chin's authentic rendering of the Lorraine Motel suite."– Bob Abelman, The News-Herald

"Suddenly flowers grow out of the floor and the beds turn on a large turntable. Chin's ordinary set becomes something glorious to behold."– David Ritchey, Talkin' Broadway
