Critics’ Praise for The White Road ‘s Sound Design
“Victoria Deiorio’s sound design and original music is stormy enough to make you reach for a life raft.” Hedy Weiss – Chicago SunTimes
“The sound design, too, was great. Victoria Deiorio created sounds which were absolutely haunting to hear as the ship was crushed, and helped give indication as to where in the world parts of the play were at (classical guitar music played as Shackleton and others were in Uruguay, for instance).” Chicago Stage Standard
“Smooch Medina’s scenic projections and Victoria DeIorio’s score of Alfred Newman-tinged incidental music create a suitably swashbuckling ambience.” Mary Shen Barnidge – Windy City Times
“With strong direction and solid acting in place, the third part of this successful production is the design of the show. I also loved the original music and sound design.” Lazlo Collins – Chicago Theatre Review
