"Laurence Mongeau had designed a simple but striking set of strong lines dominated by a series of interlocking frames that served as doors, gates, pillars, and changing venues. Wires were strung from the top beams to the stage floor creating pleasing verticals and diagonals, and, caught beautifully by Lighting Designer Rob Siler, they conjured up images of suspension bridges but also vaguely jail bars. Most importantly, the symbolic forms did not detract from the singers but rather framed them throughout the evening and kept them in strong focus."
