"Thielen’s design team took what was sensible in other productions, and made the mood lighting (Lee Fiskness), cage-like set (Thomas M. Ryan), and etching-like projections (Anthony Churchill) more subdued and authentic to the characters’ state of mind.” -Jacob Davis, Chicago Critic "The lighting by Lee Fiskness is so good at setting the tone…" -Mary Kroeck, New City Stage

"The Lighting by designer, Lee Fiskness was the best I have seen in a Marriott production.” -Russell Goeltenbodt, Showbiz Chicago

 "And he is immeasurably helped by Thomas M. Ryan’s spare, subtly prison-like steel pipe set, Lee Fiskness’ stunning lighting, Anthony Churchill’s gorgeous projections”  -Hedy Weiss, Chicago Sun Times  

"Actors in period costumes (designed by Susan Hilferty and Nancy Missimi) perform upon Thomas M. Ryan’s almost bare, prison-like set, adorned by just a few chairs and benches under Lee Fiskness’ blazing, rock concert lighting. One minute the teenagers are reciting their Latin lessons; the next they’re exploding violently in song with anger and repressed sexual energy.' -Colin Douglas, Chicago Theatre Review
