“Scenic designer Deanna Zibello’s Manhattan tenement studio apartment rings true, complete with fake fireplace…”   –Windy City Times

“…excellent and authentic…”  –Windy City Times

“…in Deanna Zibello’s imaginative set, rusty oil drums share space with the burned-out hull of a car—and when it rains, it actually pours.”  –Chicago Reader

“…what grabs you right from the start is the fantastic junkyard set designed by Deanna Zibello.  As you wait for the show to begin, you find yourself looking for a rat to scurry out from under the hollowed-out car wreck or old fridge.  Perhaps the filthiest looking set that I have ever seen, it makes you want to get a hepatitis shot when you walk past to get to your seat.  The stained mattress covered in dirt and topped off with a muffler ices this less-than-appetizing mud pie.  It is a true example of how much a set can do to put you in the right place and frame of mind before the action or dialogue ever starts.”  –Gay Chicago Magazine

“…both elegant and flexible, alternating between picture-perfect Mediterranean villa and battle-royale coliseum, complete with a full bathtub.” -The UW Daily
