Stylistically, set and costume designer Meganne George transports us back to the 1970s with a wonderful feel for the period. The tones are groovy and palatable, and the interior of the home is bedecked with enough stuff to make it look warm and inviting, but not too cluttered. Costumes are also a triumph with enough fun pieces to make you want to traipse through Beacon’s Closet or any other trendy vintage store in New York for that one-of-a-kind find.

WHAT’S NOT TO LIKE [about Meganne George’s costume design]? Its grungy ingenuity does Meyer proud.
New York Sun
Meganne George’s set captured the play’s bleakness with a spare but telling elegance…. With its gutsy, intelligent direction, searing performances, and bold visual imagery, this production of Woyzeck was an exhausting, horrifying, and ultimately exhilarating experience.
