“By far, the most galvanic moments of this play occur after intermission when Rachel, Abby, and Sarah begin a road trip; Dee decides to join them soon thereafter. Projection designer Rasean Davonte Johnson provides imagery of the journey as the women vocalize journal entries detailing emotions and reactions as they motor on. It's easy to feel totally caught up in the combined resonance of feeling and purpose during this visually arresting sequence.” Fred Sokol Talkin’ Broadway

“The production itself looks good, with one of the finest uses of projection design that I have ever seen… Lighting designer Kathy A. Perkins does a wonderful job, and works in tandem with Rasean Davonte Johnson, whose projections are simply outstanding.” Zander Opper

“Technically, "Cadillac Crew" abounds with imagination. Scenic designer Jessie Chen's lived-in, confined 1964 office space for Act I opens up big and wide for Act II to reveal an abstract, surreal set of moving platforms, offset by vivid, well-timed, colorful projections, handsomely executed by projection designer Rasean Davonte Johnson.” James V. Ruocco From the Desk of Jim R., Take 2
