"On Wilson Chin's broad, spare and cleverly flexible set, Aubergine moves seamlessly between hospital, home, restaurant and some far-flung settings."– Robert Hurwitt, San Francisco Chronicle

"Wilson Chin shows off magnificently with a set that is simple in its modern sophistication, flexible for quick entrances of kitchen or hospital bed, and powerful with its stage-length thread of opaque glass that changes in hue and intensity."–Theatre Eddys

"The way scenes flow into one another through the simple (and astonishingly quiet) but strikingly beautiful set by Wilson Chin immerses us in the world completely. We go from hospital to home to diner, from present to past, from the U.S. to Korea with graceful efficiency."– Chad Jones, Theater Dogs
