"Ia Ensterä's splendid set design features a rich array of textures that recall both vaudeville and – dominated by a sign advertising the Commander-in-Chief Shooting Gallery – a seedy county fair."
"Ia Ensterä produced a highly functional set with exceptional sightlines. Its appearance is as a reviewing stand for a parade or political rally with the President. It features raked levels or risers painted and draped all over with red, white and blue, and nineteenth-century touches decorate it (oval-framed portrait photographs and the like). A projection screen stands upstage center, also draped. Gallows steps are wheeled in as needed."
"Glover floats across the set (one of Ia Enstera's best) and lands every one of his character's many jokes."
