Bartley H. Bauer's set is a realistically run-down apartment (perhaps reflecting the "run-down-ness" of these two characters, no longer young.) It has a working sink and hot-plate for cooking, refrigerator with real food, and a bathroom so realistic that a crew member stands by to make sure patrons continue their walk through to the back lobby bathrooms and don't mistakenly make use of it. John Manfredi's direction and "choreography" of the dressing/undressing/cooking and all is masterful in that it seems so effortless. The lighting (Genesis Garza) enhances all from sexy blackout to golden dawn.
