for a previous production "It is harrowing, hilarious and uplifting. On a bare stage, different worlds come alive by Wolfert’s storytelling and sound effects that he orally mimics...Wolfert’s performance is a high-powered and tender portrayal of a man who has escaped from a dysfunctional, alcoholic family that tried to stifle his creative fires. As his story unfolds he grabs our emotions and challenges our intellect. It is a performance not to be missed." Full Review
for a previous production "‘Fiorello!’ moves right along with a breezy score by Jerry Bock, clever lyrics by Sheldon Harnick, and this is a good thing because the weak link is a thin, choppy book which has undergone various revisions over the years…The cast of ‘Fiorello!’ is uniformly excellent…Overall this production is up to summer stock standards, and a solid choice for an affordable summer-evening-in-the-Berkshires outing."

for a previous production "While I thoroughly enjoyed the show in the end, it took me a while to warm up to the rather creaky 1950’s humor. What won me over were the excellent performances by all six actors in this piece...Impeccably cast, sumptuously furnished and brilliantly executed technically, Living on Love is a thatrical joy ride in a classy 1950’s star vehicle with a 2014 turbocharged engine hidden under its hood."

for a previous production “A searing drama...This is not an easy play and an audience should be aware of what they are getting into. WTF is to be commended for producing this work but it takes a chunk out of our heart and psyche to sit through it…Two days have passed since I saw this play. It lingers and disturbs me. The evening was disorienting and profoundly thought-provoking. It was one of those tough love experiences that change who we are and how we view the challenges of others." Full Review
for a previous production "Overall, this is one of those happy theatrical events when every aspect of the production comes together for a truly transporting evening of theatre...The resultant synergy gives this 'Fool For Love' real gusto. The Williamstown Theatre Festival has delivered another masterpiece of great theatre." Full Review
for a previous production "The original play, as written by Leonard Nimoy, divides the play into two sections, the first in which we learn about the artist from his brother Theo through their letters to each other, and the second in which Theo talks directly to the audience about Vincent. It is a simple dramatic device that makes Act One purely expository, and Act Two not only dramatic, but revelatory...Jim Briggs and 'Vincent' are a classic match of temperaments. His production is both enlightening and enjoyable." Full Review
