"Lee Newby's costumes are rather more spot-on -- including Rose's perfectly ghastly ballgown, a maroon horror with the appearance of a glistening slice of raw liver and a boiled cabbage accent."
"Along with elements of Pasek and Paul's score, set/costume designer Lee Newby plays a major part in bringing the era to life the Golden Gate Bridge backdrop on which the band resides is hugely effective."
"Lee Newby's impressive stage design is dominated by a huge metal structure resembling the Golden Gate Bridge that runs along the side of the auditorium, complete with lights to provide a romantic atmosphere."
And Lee Newby’s Golden Gate-based set impresses, forming an evocative, fogbound opening to the show, yet being subtle enough not to detract from the show’s brief, dramatic foray into the Vietnam battlefield.
