"Rawal may not make the nuances entirely clear, but the emotional stakes of Durga and Amar’s debate are always palpable. Bose and Tewari have a compelling, sparky chemistry…A sense of time proves more elusive: Rawai’s dialogue flits between the poetic and contemporary...The play perhaps could have stood for more time to build to the supposedly explosive family argument that fell a touch flat…But the questions that the play raises as a whole are timely and interesting."

"The best work I’ve seen created by self-identified millennial artists has been deeply, achingly sincere. And another perfect example is Sky Pony’s 'The Wildness'...This blurring of fact and fiction–characters who are named for their actors, who are both real, and not real–creates a delightfully sticky and engaging immersive experience...'The Wildness' taps successfully into the sound and feel of the millennial sense of seeking and alienation."

"The physicality is lovely and perfectly fitting…There is, however, less fervor and richness in the actors’ use of the verse itself…The adaptation did not weight the two title roles equally, to the detriment of the play as a whole…Flawed though it is, the production is never condescending, and it is more successful than many at tapping into the various wellsprings of energy— love, lust, joy, friendship, violence— that set all of Verona’s citizens onto a collision course with tragedy."

"The company’s goal of illuminating the importance of these forgotten astronomers is laudable, but the playwright’s ambition in this respect unfortunately seems to distract him from creating a compelling drama. All of the characters are mouthpieces rather than people, and as a result, the play stutters and circles without ever achieving the kind of flowing narrative that arises from allowing characters to be propelled by their goals."
