There are some challenges in creating this set in the Lohman Theatre, although scenic designer Yusuke Soi overcomes most of them. But the screen used in the opening (and one other number) needs to be deeper, because the side audiences can see behind it.

Michael Rooney’s lighting and Ken Kilen’s sound are effective, save for the aforementioned orchestrations overpowering the singers’ melodious efforts.
