“Barney George’s ingenious minimalist set designs, combined with William Simpson’s back projections, work to create a seamless transition of sense of place which I’ve experienced only very rarely and succeeded on the Playhouse’s large stage. Cue the silent swish of virtual Arabesque curtains followed by a Frisco skyline at night, it was all quite magical.”
