New York Times "The set, rough-hewed and ingenious, is by [You-Shin Chen]"
Pioneer Valley Radio Review, transcript "[You-Shin Chen] has designed a jaw-dropping multi-tiered playing area in a glade along the Connecticut River, part of undeveloped land stewarded by Riverfront Recapture. The set has several stand-alone buildings, a garden, a chicken coop, and is shaded by tall trees and grasses"
Hartford Courant
Times Square Chronicles "...gorgeously envisioned remote cabin in the woods, impeccably designed by [You-Shin Chen],..." " Their low impact habitation, consisting of a stunningly constructed cabin, a chicken coop, and a well cared for vegetable garden, dynamically brought to light by lighting designer Jeanette Oi-Suk-Yew, takes on the serenity and power of the trees and the wind."
This Week in New York "Walden is beautifully directed by Mei Ann Teo (SKiNFoLK: An American Show, Where We Belong) with a relaxed, easygoing pace that befits its lovely surroundings. I watched it online, where the cameras take you inside the house, into the garden, and onto the grass, where you can see some members of the masked audience sitting in front of you, making you feel part of set designer [You-Shin Chen’s] stunningly real and inviting environment..."
Connecticut Critics Circle; Bonnie Goldberg

Riverfront site scouting. Before everything was build, it was just an empty canvas. Many thanks to the artistic producer Taneisha Duggan, the crews under Zack Pilat's technical direction at TheaterWorks Hartford and the Keney Park Sustainability Project. (photo by Jeanette Oi-Suk Yew)
