“…(sound) designer Brendan Patrick Hogan must have had a blast creating the audio for a futuristic avian apocalypse. And it’s the scariest, and most weirdly satisfying, aspect of the Strawberry Theatre Workshop production…” – Misha Berson, Seattle Times

“But the greatest achievement belongs to director Paul Morgan Stetler and sound designer Brendan Patrick Hogan, who add a whole new level of comedy to the play…” – Brendan Kiley, The Stranger

“…the gorgeous sound design from Brendan Patrick Hogan only serve to accentuate (but never overpower) the beauty of the set, the play and the performances.” – Jay Irwin, Broadway World

“The design team deftly reinforces the narrative flexibility, anchoring the play in a minimalist but evocative atmosphere…Brendan Patrick Hogan’s sound design mingles brooding synthesizer and ritualistic chimes (used as part of the set).” – Thomas May, Crosscut

“…a superb sound design by Brendan Patrick Hogan that uses ambient city noises, the rumble of the subway and some very chilling music to ratchet up the tension while maintaining a sense of urban reality amidst the unrealistic nature of a political thriller. I’m always very happy when theaters and productions realize that sound design is one of the most vital elements in a show and one that is frequently short changed…” – Michael Strangeways, Seattle Gay Scene

“Overlaying the action, Brendan Patrick Hogan’s industrial-driven sound design of thundering trains, fierce oil field explosions, and bass notes played erratically on a piano intrudes on the action when it should, then backs off gracefully to let the actors carry the drama.” – Katherine Luck, Crosscut
