Press: “The street is designed with impressive attention to the minutiae of urban decay” New York Times

There is much, however, that is easy to love, starting with Anna Louizos’s evocative cityscape set (complete with the George Washington Bridge in the background)
— Matthew Murray - Theater Mania
The setting, by Anna Louizos, makes an immediate impact, with its layers of bricks and cornices on a street corner, with stairs and a terrace and a view of the George Washington Bridge.
— Malcolm Johnson
Anna Louizos’ agreeably cluttered, two-tiered set conjures a neighborhood in the shadow of the George Washington Bridge, with a fire hydrant on one corner and the 181st Street subway entrance on the other. Downstairs from the jumble of apartments and fire escapes, there’s a hair salon, a car service and a bodega, run by Usnavi (Miranda), named for the U.S. Navy ship his father saw on arrival in the country.
