Jon Sanders, WRAL

"Hager's got a good thing going with his Aggregate creative team of musician Jade Murphy, stage manager Duncan MacGregor, fellow director Jaybird O'Berski, and actors Ben Apple, Vincent Bland, Jr., Rebecca Bossen, Richard Butner and Jessica Flemming."

"The community overlap showcased in "In Good Taste," where we shed our differences to celebrate and share with each other what we love, is exemplary for our time."

What They Said...

 

Alan R. Hall, CVNC:

"Aggregate Theatre has given us a wild and savage introduction to its budding theatre troupe."

"[Sophia Lemieux's painting Jesusize is] both dazzling and unsettling... Marc Celestini's musical score wins points for enhancing the action but never intruding on it."

Martha Keravuori and Chuck Galle, Triangle Arts & Entertainment

"Director Jaybird O’Berski keeps a driving pace..."

"Lexie Braverman and Matthew Hager display disciplined and extensive acting abilities, and create a palpable chemistry so intimate that we tend to feel like window peepers examining something that’s not our business."

"The lighting by Mia Carson is spot on, reflecting the mood as the action moves."
