“Kevin Newbury's focused directing, Timothy R. Mackabee's set (a shiny black runway between two tiers of spectators, with the orchestra at one end and a bank of industrial lights above), and Amanda Seymour's period costumes evoked Paul's inner and outer lives.”
– Heidi Waleson, The Wall Street Journal

“I cannot praise enough the imaginative and winning concert of design elements of this show, so economically yet lovingly wrought. Amanda Seymour’s monochromatic period costumes are beautifully designed with detail one can appreciate sitting so close to the action. 
–  Susan Galbraith, DC Theatre Scene

"Newbury moves Blalock and Slattery around the stage in lockstep as if on animatronic tracks, foreshadowing the tragic fork in Paul’s path. Amanda Seymour’s authentic period costumes, affording Paul special touches of color and texture, are shown off in non-static museum lighting by Eric Southern."
