Bushwick Daily on CONNECT: Explorations in Electronic Psychedelia, February 22 2013

Variety on my design for theatre production Exit Cuckoo, April 21 2009


“This is among the most sensitively directed, eloquently designed and impeccably acted productions of a Shakespeare tragedy that the city [New York] has seen in years.”

NY Times review of Theatre For A New Audience's Othello, February 23 2009

Directed by Arin Arbus. Sound Design by Matt O'Hare.


“Scene changes were… scored to the sound of channels being changed, a clever idea for this show (especially slipping in a clip from a documentary about the Stanford prison experiment)…”

Broadway World on my design for Stock Home, NY Fringe Festival, August 16 2007


“Matt O’Hare composed the invaluable music and sound design, transporting the action of the basketball games into the house… with pumping rhythms, roaring crowds, and invasive buzzers.”

Broadway World on my design for Three Seconds in the Key at the San Francisco Playhouse, January 17 2007
