"Director Moritz von Stuelpnagel provides an energetic staging that skirts the line between ridiculous and all-too-real. That starts from the first look at Wilson Chin’s classroom set, brightly decorated with plastic chairs and posters from such elementary school favorites as Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? and Rent."– Zachary Stewart, TheaterMania

"The production design is unusually witty. Wilson Chin’s classroom set is dotted with posters from Logan’s earlier triumphs, including school productions for Angel in America and Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?"– David Barbour, Lighting and Sound America

"Wilson Chin’s scenic design loves th people it’s poking fun at. The funniest things in the show are the posters for earnest high-school productions of plays like The Crucible and Angels in America that line the walls of the play’s classroom set."– Sara Holdren, New York Magazine

"Look closely, though, and you’ll see some odd touches. It’s a drama classroom, and there are posters for past productions at this high school, including Extremities, Angels in America, and Frankie and Johnny in the Clair de Lune. The mind boggles. Clearly, an ambitious presence is behind these efforts, and that’s Logan, the director of the upcoming Thanksgiving play."– Marc Miller, Talkin’ Broadway
