“Many theatermakers struggled to rethink their art form this year, but the multimedia designer Jared Mezzocchi was immediately at ease — and showed leadership — in the virtual world. A May production of Qui Nguyen’s ‘She Kills Monsters’ at the University of Maryland, where Mezzocchi teaches, was among the earliest to glam up Zoom with imaginative filters. He is just as comfortable navigating digitally native waters, as in the online hit ‘Russian Troll Farm.’ We are curious to see where he takes theater next.”

“It’s a mesmerizing marriage of technology and story that echoes the play’s projection-heavy Broadway and West End productions while using Mezzocchi’s distinctive animation (he doubles as the projection designer) to outline a path of its own.
 
“When Christopher processes an overwhelming revelation toward the end of Act 1, Bryan’s writhing performance blends with Mezzocchi’s pulsating projections and Andre Pluess’s savvy sound design. As those disparate elements work in harmony to devastating effect, it becomes clear that Rilette and Mezzocchi have cracked the formula, and this ‘“Curious Incident’” adds up to even more than the sum of its impressive parts.”
