"Deafness factors into the atmospheric sounds and the music employed for the production (designed by Patrick O’Brien)...[It's] designed to give us the feel of audial distortions that many deaf individuals experience, adding an additional disorienting layer to confusion and anxiety."
- Sean Margaret Wagner, SPORK!
"...Kokandy has laid in the best sound system and mix I’ve ever heard at Theater Wit."
- Chris Jones, Chicago Tribune
