"Scenic and Prop Designer Robert Humphrey uses the intimate space wisely, giving each actor a large mobile set piece that acts as their home/play space. They can be moved and manipulated to suit the actor’s need for ample space, as this show requires a lot of movement and dance. Projections designed by Patrick Lord are displayed across three playfully skewed screens, most of them showing the abstract drawings and notes that the children are sending to each other.
E-hui Woo does a lovely job with lighting design, including some imaginative stencil work, and Costume Designer Amy MacDonald dresses the actors in creatively-cut suits that, while spunky and fun, don’t command too much attention. This is because the core of this show is music and movement. Musical Director Joan Singer performs beautiful music for this production as part of the group QuinTango, an instrumental ensemble consisting of two violins, a cello, bass, and piano. Light and cheery, the music sets the tone for the actors, and since there is no dialogue, it is the main driving force of the production."
