OMEGA KIDS (New Light Theater Project)
"Scot Gianelli's lighting design was extraordinary. I found his floor lighting to be particularly inspired. It told the parallel subtext of each moment in corresponding color, supporting the action beautifully. He really made a truly intimate, delicate space with his halogen and LED brushes."

TROJAN WOMEN (The Flea)
"Scot Gianelli's lighting is both detailed and surprisingly beautiful -- with its low ceiling, the downstairs theatre at the Flea is a very difficult venue for lighting designers."
- David Barbour, Lighting & Sound America
#LIBERATED (IRT Lines Theatre)
"With beams to evoke a ceiling, lighting designer Scot Gianelli was limited where exactly to place lights. The use of the track lighting in the set was practical and still allowed for a number of looks. But what set his design apart was the color pop on the back wall. It made the space luxurious."
- Theater in the Now
VERONA WALLS (Workshop Theatre)
"Connor Munion's versatile yet specific settings and Scot Gianelli's subtle and handsome lighting conjure magical places for love - and other passions - to bloom."
- Richard Kent Green, Blogger
IN A TILTED PLACE (IRT)
"The sound design and music of Matt Otto, the lighting design of Scot Gianelli and co-direction of Ashley Monroe and Courtney Ulrich all create a haunting and compelling atmosphere that elevates the surreal storytelling, culminating in a mythical finale that I will not give away, but earns Brandon Hardy his puppetry design credit."
- NY Theater Now
THE FEAST (The Flea Theate)
"The flicker of Scot Gianelli's lights, the stray paint tubes and art books strewn over Andrew Diaz's set and Travis Alexandra Boatright's dressed-down costumes -- sweats with stains and an occasionally gorgeous dress for Anna -- make up an ethos ripe for the weird"
- Stage Buddy
"The majority of the show was strewn with haunting sound and lighting effects kept your heart beating faster than normal."

AN APPEAL TO THE WOMAN OF THE HOUSE (Retro Productions)
"Scot Gianelli's lighting is essential to the pace of this all-night drama."
