“Set Designer Rob Eastman-Mullins' spare sets were as imaginative as they were brilliantly effective. A multilevel square raked stage was arranged with one corner overhanging the orchestra pit mid-way. Stylized architectural elements were quickly lowered and removed from the rafters to suggest Belisario's home, the Byzantine Court, or the nearby wilderness. A narrow drapery was removed to reveal a bronze martial statue of Belisario. A huge monolithic head with its face on the stage was an apt metaphor for the prison scene, featuring Belisario and his daughter Irene. Eel-like fish-headed banners on long pikes were striking as they preceded the hero's first triumphal entrance. Bravo!”
"The wonderful set by Rob Eastman-Mullins provides all sorts of things for the actors to interact with. It is always raining in the elevator to the underworld. The father uses string and twine suspended from the ceiling to craft a room for Eurydice.

Pink-tinged columns at the corners and maple-colored walls frame the playing area, and with just a few easily moved benches dappled lighting alone signals the boughs of Arden Forest there's plenty of room for the early wrestling match. Plus, the wall is solid enough to produce a convincing thunk as a wrestler's body bounces off it."
"The action is contemporary, the place unmistakable. Rob Eastman-Mullins’ elegant set is postmodern in the best sense, treating neoclassical Washington architecture as so much found art. . . . the set of Lincolnesque comes off on first impression as cold and refined, yet undeniably seductive.”
"The scene of Lear walking through a raging thunderstorm poised on the precipice of disaster highlighted the fantastic work of scenic designer Rob Eastman-Mullins . . .”
Just a Kiss
“Director Ricky J. Martinez and set designer Rob Eastman-Mullins cleverly stage this dual dilemma, splitting New Theatre’s compact platform in two to represent each woman’s apartment and the theater green room with no set changes.”
“Annie's and Zee's lifestyles and acting methods couldn't be more different—as made clear by Robert Eastman-Mullins' clever set—“
