"Scenic designer Bill Clarke....[has] created an ultra-realistic, immensely detailed abode in which to house this play. The set is not only incredible theater-craft (a particularly marvelous creation by a company known for marvelous creations); its realism beautifully off-sets the ridiculousness coming out of these actors’ mouths..."
-Bob Abelman, The News-Herald
“Bill Clarke’s set is outstanding. Filled with family heirlooms, the realism enhances the performances..”
-Roy Berko, CoolCleveland
“...Bill Clarke’s incredibly detailed set – a multiply faced and divided beautiful farmhouse with visible internal and external areas, and filled with enough characterizing possessions and decorations to take days to itemize. Great looking production!”
-Herbert Simpson, Artes Magazine
“The first thing that you notice when entering the Allen Theatre for the Cleveland Play House production of “Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike” is the incredibly elaborate set. Scenic Designer Bill Clarke has constructed an entire house complete with screened in porch, staircase, living area, kitchen, garden patio, garden and house façade. It is truly a work of art. In some cases, elaborate sets such as this have a tendency to overshadow the performances but in this case it simply enhances the enjoyment of the experience..”
