Happy New Year Everyone! :)

I've searched the web for more info on David Gallo's Scenic Design for The Mountaintop from 2011.

It seems that apart from the whole set being a meticulous recreation of the original hotel room there was some kind of big reveal/scene change that blew people's minds.

Unfortunately I can't find anything going more into detail on that!
Can anyone explain?

It was pretty jaw dropping.

After the "reveal" scene which included a surprising small special effect, and in itself caused a gasp, the room broke up into pieces and appeared to be kinda sucked away and she stood in the middle of the stage and delivered, for me, one of the most incredible monologues I have seen on a stage. It's been a while but it was like she was giving a slam poetry type history and it was all visually flying by her to the back of the darkened stage. It really was mind blowing. You just kind of held your breath as it was all happening. I enjoyed the entire play but she just nailed that ending to the wall.

David Gallo has a CG render of it on his website.

I can't remember correctly but did he come out and speak after she finished at the end?
