Excerpts from reviews:
"A whoosh of colorful highways running up, down and out to sea create a bold scene for The Human Race's opening production of "Becky's New Car," by playwright Steven Dietz, in a journey that moves from home to job to ultra-upscale island, powered by basic longings and unique audience interaction. With more than a dozen interlaced, sophisticated colors and a very clever lighting design adding more color, the appearance is visually striking, practical and contemporary, described as “zany with a touch of realism” by Scenic Designer Tamara L. Honesty."
Becky's New Car:
"The cast played on a set of abstract curves and colors by Tamara Honesty, lit cleverly by John Rensel."
Becky's New Car:
"In addition, Tamara L. Honesty's wonderfully colorful, expansive and inspired set, expertly lit by John Rensel, astutely signifies the varying directions within Becky's conflicted existence."
"In Shaffer's cute, funny, touching and refreshingly adult comedy "Managing Maxine" receiving a wonderful Midwest premiere deftly directed by Marya Spring Cordes and attractively designed by Tamara L. Honesty. . ."
"From the first words, we were overwhelmed with cleverness. Start with the set. The backdrop was 50's modern that easily created three houses as the couch rotated. Clever, yes, but that was only the beginning." --Managing Maxine Review by Burt Saidel, The Oakwood Register
"Exclusively tucked away in the suburbs of Philadelphia with a by-appointment-only admission policy, the Foundation, beautifully conceptualized by scenic designer Tamara L. Honesty, is caught in a period of major transition following the untimely death of its creator/benefactor Alfred Morris (Scott Stoney, playfully shrewd and spry)." -- The State of the Art in Black and White by Russell Florence, Jr., DaytonMost Metro
"The functional set provided by designer Tamara L. Honesty features hung windows from the period, and the costumes by David Covach are mostly attractive and suitable."---Scott Cain, talkingbroadway.com
"Tamara L. Honesty's beautiful, Arts and Crafts-inspired set, transformed the small confines of the Producer's Club into an inviting living room." -- Julie Halpern
