Tell Me On A Sunday Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts (Eisenhower Theater), 2002 Scenic & Lighting Designer Featuring Alice Ripley Produced by Jeffrey Finn, Directed by Marcia Milgrom Dodge

“Pierce's striking set design is a series of diminishing, proscenium-like frames leading to a staircase and an infinite backdrop. The Manhattan skyline gives way to the Hollywood sign and palm trees as Emma's amorous adventures go bi-coastal … The set also augments Ripley's performance in more subtle ways. For instance, when she arrives in America and sings her first, hopeful tune, the skyline features fabled Gotham buildings; but when her idealized vision gives way to harsh reality, we see a rundown, industrial landscape.”
