"While Carpenter’s set is spare, he makes extensive use of props (Shannon Kearns) and lighting (David Sexton) to change scene and, on occasion, mood. The Renaissance music design of Max Silverman is haunting. But the big production player is the fabulous costume creation of Summer Lee Jack that makes all this mayhem possible." - Chestnet Hill Local 

"John Basiulis, Mattie Hawkinson, Tai Verley, and Steven Wright play all the people they encounter. Summer Lee Jack’s quick-change costumes have all four switching from court to street. Alex Burns’s set likewise is built for speed, with two platforms that roll in with furniture for quick changes, lit cleanly by David Sexton." - Mark Cofta from www.broadstreetreview.com 

"White and Rumsey-Lasersohn use their substantial talents to create a pair of protagonists who are as flawed as they are relatable. White maintains a goofy vulnerability even as Tom grows into his new-found power, while Rumsey-Lasersohn projects entitled refinement despite Edward's increasingly dire circumstances. John Basiulis, Mattie Hawkinson, Tai Verley, and Steven Wright use a variety of clever costumes and props to perform nearly thirty additional roles. Basiulis is vicious as Tom's thieving father and utterly hilarious as a sleepy little cow. Hawkinson brings an unexpected depth to wise Lady Edith. Verley's depiction of Tom's loving but fearful mother is heartbreaking. Wright's shift from dying king to displaced noble is so complete it is possible to forget there is one man playing both roles. - Review by Rebecca Rendel Talkin’ Broadway
