"Designer Elliott Squire uses the floor of the hall for the earthly setting of the bookending scenes, and puts a gleaming white-and-steel-edged box with white leather sofas and Le Corbusier chairs on the stage for the scenes in heaven, populated by everyone sporting Zahra Mansouri’s bold, near-fluorescent costumes."

-David Benedict, The Stage
