"Next Fall has achieved the tricky and necessary feat of retaining its subtlety while increasing its clarity in making the transfer to Broadway. Wilson Chin and Jeff Croiter have scaled up their designs to fill a larger house without strain." – Ben Brantley, New York Times

"The production moves gracefully between the past and the present, thanks to the subtle magic of Wilson Chin's set, which transforms with minimal shifts from a generic lounge to a cramped Manhattan one-bedroom." – Charles McNulty, Los Angeles Times

"Excellent design elements, Wilson Chin's fluid sets, provide a credible and atmospheric environment for this engrossing production."– Les Spindle, Backstage

"Wilson Chin's set design contends valiantly with the frequent changes of locale." – John Simon, Bloomberg

"From a hospital to a rooftop to a NY apartment that ingeniously protracts and retracts, you never know how the scenery will develop next, but you'll ooh and ahh (at least in your head) every time it magically happens." – Cindy Pierre, Stage and Cinema
