“A video projection on the back wall provides back-story using authentic 1920s Chicago film reels spliced with footage of the actors themselves. The production value of these clips alone is worth the price of admission.” –Christopher McCabe

“It’s Rashid’s design team…with stunning, gray-scale costumes from Liz Hoffman and eerily opulent filmic backdrops by Jim Vendiola—whose stark vision unites the evening into a gorgeous, coherent whole.” –TimeOut Chicago

“Film designer Jim Vendiola’s  integration of found footage from the era and new work created for the production gives the show extra depth.” –Newcity Stage

“Jim Vendiola’s grainy videography cunningly splices together shots of period newspaper headlines with fleeting interludes of Popp and Hays’ characters gliding blissfully through the University of Chicago campus, caught in a folie a deux that neither they nor we can fully comprehend, but that leaves us with an aching sense of waste.” –Chicago Tribune
