The Briefly Dead / Adjusted Realists at 59E59 / NYC  

“The Design Team has done a very fine job of bringing the production to the stage with set design by Kyu Shin, lighting and sound design by Jessica Greenberg. and costume design by Peri Grabin Leong... The Briefy Dead uses an inventive mix of live actors, shadow puppets, and music. It is an entrancing show, an unconventional story that is well suited to the 59E59 Theater's intimate performance space.” -Marina Kennedy, Broadway World

"Director Elizabeth Ostler does a good job staging the various memories of Alcestis coming back to her, having the chorus forming tableaus and conjuring scenes from either a simple tune or a timely lighting effect (both lighting and sound are Jessica Greenberg's excellent designs)." -Ran Xia, Theatre Is Easy

"Elizabeth Ostler’s direction, aided by the choreography of Katie Proulx, gives the play some distinctively theatrical moments, with stylized movements, freezes, shadow puppets (designed by Ostler), and supernatural lighting and sound effects (thanks to Jessica Greenberg)." - Samuel Leiter, Theatre's Leiter Side

Surely Goodness and Mercy / Salt Lake Acting Company / SLC, UT

"Jessica Greenberg’s sound design is especially effective. The organ music in the church scenes, children’s voices and school bells and funky music bring in the outside world to create a multilayered environment." - Barbara Bannon, Salt Lake Tribune

"Sound design by Jessica Greenberg (with the assistance of Kyle Lawrence) sets the tone right out of the gate with pre-show music: modern R&B, with soul and hip hop influences. Music accompanies scene changes and occasionally underscores scenes, elevating the show. Literary themes are connected to musical themes, and to the careful listener, it’s a powerful storytelling tool." - Suzanna Whitman, Front Row Reviewers

Marian; Or, The True Tale of Robin Hood / Flux Theatre Ensemble and The New Ohio / NYC  

“Along the way they repeatedly transform the simple, elegantly rough set from forest to prison to castle walls, using little more than a few planks of wood and Jessica Greenberg’s artful lighting.” -Jon Sobel, Blog Critics

Phantasmagoria; Or, Let Us Seek Death! / PlayMachine and La Mama Experimental Theatre Club / NYC  

“Jessica Greenberg’s expert lighting and sound design adds wonderfully eerie textures throughout. In particular, she renders a fitting sense of the macabre when the Frankenstein story comes into play.” -Cynthia Allen, Theatre Scene

“A strong ensemble cast and compelling design... a spectacular spectre-driven experience. The play becomes ephemeral and ethereal, with heavy ambience and puppet work.” -Adrienne Sowers, The Reviews Hub

“A singular show that gives Shelley the attention she so rightly deserves... The story of Frankenstein’s creature is augmented by spooky sound effects and suitably creepy puppets.” -Adrienne Urbanski, Theatre is Easy

Gluten! / The Adjusted Realists / NYC  

“The accomplished lighting design by Jessica Greenberg crisply lends a futuristic dimension.” -Darryl Reilly, Theatre Scene

“Interesting costumes by William Mellette, and cool lighting by Jessica Greenberg…” -Samuel Leiter, Theatre Pizzaz

“The play holds the audience’s attention without missing a beat, a nuance, or a single line. Adding their immense talents to the production are Jessica Greenberg, lighting design; Jason Sherwood, scenic design; William Mellette, costume design... who contributed so much to the end result.”  -Patricia Norris, Woman Around Town

“Mr. Kaliski clearly means to lampoon our current fascination with ionized water and alternative foods, our fear of anything unnatural or adulterated with added sugar. That is territory rich and ripe, and the cast is eager."  -Alexis Soloski, The New York Times

Stupid F*cking Bird / Salt Lake Acting Company / SLC, UT  

“Technically, the show's designers — Thomas George's set, James M. Craig's lighting, Erin M. West's costumes and Jessica Greenberg's sound — all beautifully serve the story.” - Ellen Fagg West, Salt Lake Tribune

Mr. Perfect / Salt Lake Acting Company / SLC, UT

“Keven Myhre's funky pink set features boxes with bull's­eyes where urban street scenes are projected, and James Craig's lighting is brassy and bright... Jessica Greenberg's sound design vividly brings the noises of the outside world in.” – Barbara Bannon, Salt Lake Tribune

Surrenderalla / SB Dance / SLC, UT  

“The production values are alluring; the lighting is zippy, bold, almost circus style. “ – Daisy Blake, Salt Lake Tribune

The Pushers / SB Dance / SLC, UT  

Winner, Salt Lake City ARTY Award Best Multi Media Production 2014

“Intimacy, humor, and technical panache combine in SB Dance’s The Pushers, a modern and mature exploration of the closets we all find ourselves in and how we push ourselves out.”  – Daisy Blake, Salt Lake Tribune

Pterodactyls / The Adjusted Realists / NYC

“The production values are high… Peri Grabin Leong's scenic design feels like an upper middle class conservative home gone slightly shabby…Jessica Greenberg's lighting is rich and creepy…” – Mark Savitt Reviews

Of Myth & Mud / Allred Theater  / Ogden, UT

“Jessica Greenberg‘s rich, subtle lighting, and Alex Thedell‘s vivid sound design point up dramatic moments without distracting from them… There is an impressive cohesion to the design of this piece…” - Melissa Leilani Larson, Utah Theatre

Raised In Captivity / The Red Fern Theatre Co.  / NYC

“The design was excellent all around… the pairing of the set with Jessica Greenberg’s lights was inspired. Together they created a series of shelves, illuminated from inside, that brilliantly created different locations just by opening some and closing others, and added to the creepy dollhouse like feeling.” – Ashley Griffin, Theatreonline

A Piece of My Heart / The Red Fern Theatre Co.  / NYC

“Served by an excellent set (Adrienne Kapalko), lighting (Jessica Greenberg), and costume design (Summer Lee Jack), the period of the piece was conveyed sensitively through a collection of translucent panels and well choreographed movement of benches and blocks... This play could easily overwhelm the audience with psychedelic special effects but the production values complement the action ” – Ashley Griffin, Theatreonline
