Praise for an intimate evening with typhoid mary:
"This arrestingly designed fever dream of a play starts strong and ends gloriously ... Oona Curley’s excellent lighting, shifting from shadowy to glamorous to blindingly clinical — delineates the defiant unreality of Marty’s mind from the reality of the hospital room."
- Laura Collins Hughes, The New York Times (full review)
PRAISE FOR SWEAT & TEARS:
"...WONDERFULLY LIT BY OONA CURLEY .... BOLD PRODUCTION DESIGN."
- Ryan Hudak, New York Theater Review (full review)
praise for 4.48 psychosis:
"Oona Curley has done a wonderful job with her space—inside a large, empty room that resembles an unfinished construction site, she has built a tiny room enclosed by drapes, so that we are nearly nose-to-nose with actors whose voices boom and echo throughout an unseen darkness."
- Aaron Botwick, Scribicide (full review)
