Because Eusebio utilized the entirety of the stage, the lighting was a basic, and sadly unfortunately looking, wash. Yet the moments when the piece was granted a more theatrical look, With You was given a breath of life. These lighting looks were stunning. Going back to the simplicity in staging will allow Eusebio more of those stage pictures.
With You is a triumph of a solo piece. The story is clearly special to Una Aya Osato, giving her full heart, soul, and body to the production. And by doing so, it becomes special to all who watch her.
