REVIEWS"Dane Laffrey’s meticulously designed, handsome set, which includes an opening, opaque scrim that has the image of an enlarged hamster running across it, provides ideal fodder for this hyperbolic confrontation."
-Sheila Barth / THE THEATRE MIRROR
"Dane Laffrey’s set design is marvelous."
-Killian Melloy / EDGE BOSTON
"Scenic Designer Dane Laffrey's taste here is pitch perfect. The Novak's apartment is furnished with everything than the mildly pretentious upper class New Yorker could desire. These furnishings include furniture which is more artistic than functional, the de rigueur globally minded African art masks, a slew of out of print art books, and, la piece de la resistance, a Venus of Willendorf. Laffrey's set plays an important role in "God of Carnage". From Alan's somewhat vain attempts to sit comfortably on the modernist arm chair to Annette's unfortunate, but crowd-pleasing vomiting on Veronica's out of print Sothebys art catalogue, the elegance of the apartment is contrasted to the undeniably animalistic needs of the people inhabiting it."-Revonda Pokrzywa / BOSTON EVENTS INSIDER
