“It’s the concept and imagination of stage director Lindy Hume which makes this production so delicious, ably abetted by production designer Dan Potra, lighting with some wonderful effects by Matthew Marshall and the choreography of associate stage director Dan Pelzig.”

"when sets start to move, stage use become more dynamic, and lighting designer Matthew Marshall ramps up the drama with a spray of speckled light across the hall to herald the debut of Cinderella’s iconic blue dress (or at least the production’s elegant but muted take on it within the confines of her Victorian-era setting).”

Marissa Gaston, dailyuw.com

“There was visual magic in production designer Dan Potra’s settings, especially “Don Magnifico’s Emporium,” a catch-all mercantile stacked from floor to ceiling with toys, gadgets, wigs, hats, and all manner of frilly outer- and undergarments. Portions of both acts were set in the palace gardens, manicured to a cartoon-like perfection with a forced perspective so comically extreme that the two stepsisters frolicking in their Victorian lawn tennis couture resembled giant air balloons. This entire outdoor sequence had a lively glow, thanks in large part to lighting designer Matthew Marshall.”
