"The crew’s biggest star, however, is Phillip Franck and his poetic lighting effects. He re-creates the illuminations of the light bulbs that stingy Tyrone tries to turn off and provides a striking silhouette of Mary on the stairs and Tyrone next to her on stage, separated by a cleverly translucent wall."
