Until characters begin to emerge from the wall as if through a liquid. Doorways and compartments appear and disappear with dreamlike ease. Maeght’s highly inventive wall is this production’s most distinctive component.”
“The technical design team works wonders. Margaux Maeght designed the set, consisting of sound wall, with multiple opening places to bring characters in and out. Projected against that wall and the ceiling are abstract and identifiable images which coincided with the Pink Floyd album music.”
“Designed by Margaux Maeght, this set is a seemingly solid wall, but it's made of acoustic foam, which allows a lot of things to happen that "shouldn't." People come and go through various points in the wall, through multiple doors on multiple levels, and seem to enter various stages of "being."
" It is a technological wonder, and earns Maeght kudos for an excellently adaptable set.”
Initially, the gray acoustic tiles lining Margaux Maeght’s curved, permeable multistory set suggest a recording studio like Abbey Road, where the famous album was made. Soon enough, we learn they’re also intended to represent the walls of a different type of padded room.
