"Tim Mackabee’s open-sky blue-and-green set may evoke the daunting public stage of center court, but the real setting is the crowded interior of the players’ minds."
David Barbour, Lighting & Sound America
"Upchurch's production is unusually inventive, beginning with Tim Mackabee's set, which places the actors against a sky cyc over which hangs a forced-perspective array of stadium lights. (Scoreboards, on the right and left walls of the theatre, complete the effect.)"
The Unforgettable Line
"To mention the scenic design so early in a review is usually not a good sign. But Tim Mackabee’s artistic rendering of the US Open is completely captivating and functions almost as a fifth character. All the world’s a court and the men and women merely players. The set pieces are accented by Bradley King’s mood-setting lighting which shifts from glaring spotlight to swirling night sky."
