"The set was by far the most simplistic and bare of any Spring Awakening I have seen. However, the magic happens once the show begins. One of the strongest elements of this entire production is the harmonious relationship between Laura Valenti’s scenic design and Doug DelPizzo’s lighting design, repeatedly producing strikingly impressive visuals. Valenti’s set is surprisingly versatile in its simplicity, able to evoke locales of an esteemed educational institution, a church, various homes, and the outdoors. The crumbling stone-like walls and lancet windows, with exposed wooden framework being overtaken by greenery, was a beautiful symbolic representation of the play itself. DelPizzo’s lighting design transforms the neutrality of the set with excellent variety, elevating every scene with stunningly expressive intensity. To twist a phrase, an ounce of atmosphere is worth a pound of props and furniture. " -UnProfessional Opinion
