"Jamie Platt's lighting design becomes fundamental in the separation of their headspaces. He plays with warm and cold hues, with a moving amalgamation of the two in "Goodbye Until Tomorrow/I Could Never Rescue You"."
"Jamie Platt's lighting is an especially enjoyable element of this musical, with contrast and darkness being used extremely well. A particularly effective moment is when the sun rises and the space is gradually transformed from a blue tinge to a warm orange."
"Jamie Platt’s lighting reflects the timbre of each moment with prescience; there is not a single weak link in the production."
"More effective is the illuminated ‘L5Y’ above the stage – appropriate for two people who dream of seeing their name in lights."
"Jamie Platt's lighting tells a story of its own, moving from misty blues to the bright orange of a regretful morning."
"Lighting by Jamie Platt helps to further bring the characters and their dilemmas to life."

"Lee Newby’s simple striking set is elegant and underplayed... Likewise, Jamie Platt’s lighting plots are equally and as imaginatively, effective."
