"Brian Prather's poetically evocative set is an ideal forum for this musical's battle of wills, adorned with a patterned gallery of picture frames, both empty and filled."   -The New York Times


"The scrim…opens on a stunning scene, designed by Brian Prather, where dozens of filled and unfilled picture frames hover over a well-furnished living room in a Brooklyn apartment.  They seem to float ethereally through time and space, the empty frames threatening impending doom on the filled."   -TheaterMania


"Brian Prather's scenic design and Chris Lee's lighting work harmoniously, especially when family photos lining a hallway light up, then fade away like Mother's disappearing memories."   -AP
