Kris Vire, Time Out Chicago:
“Set designer Chelsea M. Warren’s pitch-perfect Bucktown condo adds to the realism.”

Heidi Weiss, Chicago Sun Times:
“Chelsea M. Warren’s exceptionally handsome, multi-dimensional set is most appealing.”

Chris Jones, Chicago Tribune:
"…Joanie Schultz’s peppy premiere production on Chelsea Warren’s attractive, condo-like set…"

Jonathan Abarbanel, Windy City TImes:
“Scenic designer Chelsea M. Warren provides a detail-perfect vintage condo apartment stylishly decorated with tasteful furniture and interesting objects. Sarah Hughey’s lighting and Izumi Inaba’s in-character costumes warmly complete the play’s contemporary look.”

Alan Bresloff, Around the Town Chicago:
“They have a lovely condo ( the design by Chelsea M Warren is spectacular, almost ready to move into quality and the stage at Chicago Dramatists appears larger than ever) and what appears to be a perfect life, except Leigh wants a child.”
John Olson, Talkin' Broadway:
"Also on the plus side is the pitch-perfect depiction of an Andersonville condo in the set by Chelsea Warren and props by Katherine Greenleaf. Izumi Inaba’s costumes seem equally perfect for each character and Gubbins' Chicago references all clearly set the action in the community the local audience knows well. "
