I'm Gonna Pray for You So Hard

"As per usual at the Unicorn, the design is exquisite—Sarah White has created the warmly messy apartment that is the natural habitat for many a New York artist-type, spacious enough to suggest some comfort, but outdated in a way that reminds how fleeting success can be." - Victor Wishna for


Water by the Spoonful


"The set/[projection]design team of Sarah White and Kelly Gualdoni, respectively brought cubism and projection to visually represent the atmosphere - and they did it well. Cubism itself represents many movements, but in the traditional sense, something that can be analyzed is broken and reassembled, offering multiple lenses for study. I can't think of a better artistic medium to represent Spoonful." - Dr. Rhonda Baughman for NUVO, Indianapolis


The Oldest Boy


"There's something peaceful about the set, too, which transitions, via sliding screens and projected backdrops, from the family's Eastern-inspired home in an unnamed American city to a mountain monastery in northern India[...] The Levin Stage, with its wide, low projection platform, is always a welcoming, intimate space, but here scenic designer Sarah White and the creative team have given it a particularly Zen quality [...]" - Victor Wishna for


"The mountain backdrop in Act II gives an illusion of great depth in this small comfortable theater[...]  Sarah White's set sparkles." - Alan Porter for, Kansas City


"The physical production is handsome, with an economically versatile set by Sarah White[...]" - The Kansas City Star



The Last Days of Judas Iscariot



"The novelty of the setting, with overturned junk piles and hollow cases acting as bench and courtroom furniture... help[s] temper a drama that asks alot of challenging questions with only hints at possible answers." - The Greenfield Reporter


"The Purgatorial junkyard courtroom (the witness chair is a gutted TV) is a place where just about anything is admissible." -Indianapolis Business Journal




Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo


"The production design beautifully manifests the vision of a ruined Garden of Eden. Scenic designer Sarah White offers handsome twists on a familiar ground plan. Fragments of ruined columns fuzz the stage's clean lines, and graffitied animal silhouettes add a threatening edge. The spade-patterned floor is especially intricate.

"The most evocative design elements, however, are the enormous animal-shaped topiaries, plants that Musa once pruned for Uday Hussein's lavish garden. White resists the temptation to create a manicured menagerie; instead, the animals are scraggly and overgrown, luxuries made wild by nature and neglect." - The Pitch, Kansas City, Missouri





"White also designed the set, which perfectly reflects the slippery slope these characters are taking. With the back of the stage raised, the audience can see floor impressions of postage stamps (those stamps/insecurities really get into your head). Audience members will think the action and deceptions may just slide into their laps." - The Herald Bulletin, Anderson, Indiana
