“The ingeniously atmospheric lighting was by Jeffrey E. Salzberg.”

Jennifer Dunning, The New York Times (October 20, 2001)
Midare - Dance as Ever (New York)

Read the Review

“It was an extraordinarily moving piece, especially the elegiac last song. . .where the effective lighting (by Jeffrey E. Salzberg) seemed both to box the dancer in and to elevate him above all human suffering.”

Mary Cargill, DanceView Magazine (Winter, 2001)
A Shropshire Lad - Dance as Ever

Read the Review

“Never did the low, wide stage of this theatre look better. . .the setting, lighting, and costumes would make any big ballet company proud.”

Francis Mason, WQXR Radio - New York (September 19, 1999)
Dance as Ever (Mixed Repertory)

“...Rarely have I seen such a beautiful and haunting opening as Floyd’s first exploration in the cave...Tayler is aided by lighting that seems to bounce off the cave walls, bathing him in blue light, sickening him in white, and obscuring him in shadow. Lighting designer Jeffrey E. Salzberg’s lighting scheme combines with the haunting echoes of Appalachian yodeling to create a clammy and otherworldly experience.”

Craig Idlebrook, The New England Theatre Geek (April 6, 2012)
Floyd Collins - Moonbox Productions (Boston, MA)

“Lighting designer Jeffrey E. Salzberg enhances the atmosphere with beautiful effects. Moonlight filters through trees and glistens on the gently rippling river. Of course, there is no river; there are no trees. It’s all stagecraft.”

Elisabeth Crean, Seven Days (July 8, 2009)
Talley's Folly - Saint Michael's Playhouse (Colchester, VT)

“But the strong lighting, commanding choreography and the video backdrop...make for a fascinating and riveting performance.”

Katharine Rust, Time Out New York (March 14, 2007)

Jules Becker, MYSouthEnd.com (December 1, 2016)
Amadeus - Moonbox Productions (Boston, MA)

“(Director MJ Bruder) Munafo and Lighting Designer Jeffrey E. Salzberg steal "oooohs and ahhs" from the audience as the artistic visual change of the seasons mirrors the growth of the characters.”

Matthew Mariner, This Week on Martha's Vineyard (July 1, 2015)
A Walk in the Woods - Martha's Vineyard Playhouse (Vineyard Haven, MA)

“The sound of rain falling outside and the moody blue lights illuminating the fateful balcony outside the door (credit sound designer Martha Goode and lighting designer Jeffrey E. Salzberg) help fuel the growing sense of danger and claustrophobia 'The Mountaintop' cultivates as it develops.”

Brent Hallenbeck, Burlington Free Press (April 30, 2015)
The Mountaintop - Vermont Stage Company (Burlington, VT)

“Vermont Stage's physical production complemented the stage action. Jeff Modereger's tacky motel setting was given more drama by Jeffrey Salzberg's imaginative lighting and Martha Goode's atmospheric sound design. Catherine Vigne's period costumes completed the authentic picture.”

Jim Lowe, Barre Montpelier Times Argus (April 25, 2015)
The Mountaintop - Vermont Stage Company (Burlington, VT)

“There are two arresting images on the stage...at the beginning of Moonbox Productions' latest offering,"Kimberly Akimbo"...One is a clock on the wall of a disheveled living room, the other a fast food take-out bag on a kitchen table. The clock has no hands and the container sports a logo. . .from a local drive-through by the name of Zippy Burger. They're emblematic of the attention to detail that this production pays, and it pays off. . .all ably abetted by the fine Lighting Design by Jeffrey E. Salzberg. . . .”

Jack Craib, South Shore Critic (April 12, 2015)
Kimberly Akimbo - Moonbox Productions (Boston, MA)

“"The design team of John Paul Devlin (scenic), Jeffrey E. Salzberg (lighting), Susanne Miller (costume), Joel Abbott (sound), and Matthew Houstle (projection) collaborate effectively with a minimalist approach..."”

Nancy Grossman, Broadway World Boston (April 6, 2015)
Kimberly Akimbo - Moonbox Productions (Boston, MA)

Alex Brown, Seven Days (March 18, 2015)
Slowgirl - Vermont Stage Company (Burlington, VT)

“Jeffrey Salzberg's expert dramatic lighting made it all work”

Jim Lowe, Barre Montpelier Times Argus (March 14, 2015)
Slowgirl - Vermont Stage Company (Burlington, VT)

“Lighting designer Jeffrey E. Salzberg drenches the set in moody violets and soft whites that add to the claustrophobic tone that by play's end forces both characters' internal feelings to burst out.”

Brent Hallenbeck, Burlington Free Press (March 12, 2015)
Slowgirl - Vermont Stage Company (Burlington, VT)

“Vermont Stage's physical production was simple, attractive and effective. Jeffrey Modereger's set, elegant despite its three necessary back entrances, was imaginatively and dramatically lit by Jeffrey Salzberg.”

Alex Brown, Seven Days (June 10, 2009)
The Quarry - Vermont Stage Company (Burlington, VT)

“The physical production was particularly effective. Jeff Modereger's quarry-like set had an appropriately surreal character. The mystery was underscored by Jeffrey Salzberg's imaginative ever-evolving and quite dramatic lighting. Authenticity was added by Martha Goode's sound design.”

Jim Lowe, Rutland Herald (April 28, 2014)
The Quarry - Vermont Stage Company (Burlington, VT)

“The quarry comes to life courtesy of minimal but effective gray boxes compiled by scenic designer Jeff Modereger and moody lighting contributed by Jeffrey E. Salzberg.”

Brent Hallenbeck,, Burlington Free Press (April 27, 2014)
The Quarry - Vermont Stage Company (Burlington, VT)

“Jeffrey E. Salzberg`s stellar lighting design greatly enriches the storytelling...Salzberg creates haunting effects, such as a window of pale light from the North Sea. Dusky purples bounce off the dark floor; cheery lavenders off the white backdrop. Salzberg uses a palette of light to paint changes in mood and location.”

Elisabeth Crean, Seven Days (April 30, 20014)

Jim Lowe, Barre Montpelier Times Argus (February 8, 2010)
Souvenir - Vermont Stage Company (Burlington, VT)

“Lighting designer Jeffrey E. Salzberg does an amazing job of conjuring different locations just by altering how the set is lit. To open the show, he creates the atmosphere of a dusky dive, with blue and purple lights focused tightly on McMoon at the piano. A swift transition that bathes the whole stage in warm tones quickly transforms it into the music room. The bar ambiance returns for brief interludes, allowing McMoon to shift between remembering and reliving his experiences.”

Elisabeth Crean, Seven Days (February 3, 2010)
