"The color palette for the show is a chilly but extremely elegant Nordic mix of black, gray, a touch of royal sparkle and much fur (applause for David Hyman’s costumes)."

--Hedy Weiss, Chicago Sun Times


"Gorgeously designed.... David Hyman’s lush costumes have a visual wit all their own."

--Kris Vire, Time Out Chicago


"David Hyman's costumes have a contemporary frame of reference but make some potent excursions to the past."

--Chris Jones, Chicago Tribune


"David Hyman’s costume designs range from the historical to the contemporary without ever looking out of place or anachronistic"

--Dan Zeff, Stage and Cinema


"The gripping sense of immediacy and potency owes everything to the combination of Collette Pollard’s remarkably spacious rock-and-brick set design, Sarah Hughey’s eloquent lighting, Mikhail Fiksel’s evocative sound scheme and David Hyman’s suggestively antique costumes"

--Lawrence B. Johnson, Chicago on the Aisle
