"A biting drama that brings modern sensibility to the piece. With a hint of humor, Minnicino's 'Hedda' still packs the classic drama into this streamlined production...It all worked well together. Hedda is a woman fond of illicit affairs. She’s a woman wound up in desires. Yet she’s a fascination to watch. Redd was a dynamic Hedda...Wandering Bark did a strong job paying homage to the play while still putting their own twist on the classic...This ninety-minute version is fast and gritty." Full Review
"'Hedda' is still going strong 125 years later, now reincarnated in a fleet, fluid refresh...The performances achieve an energetic naturalism, and this 'Hedda' is very funny, almost surprisingly so, especially in the early going, before the darker undercurrents become more prominent...If you are already a fan of 'Hedda Gabler,' then you owe it to yourself to see 'Hedda (Gabler)' or if it's your first time with the Norwegian classic, then you can't go wrong with this as your introduction."

"Before the story unfolds, choreographer Landers does an excellent job creating a set of stylized movements to introduce each character...Minnicino has the keen ability to capture the Ibsenian essence of each character, and infuses the new version with rhythms that are more palatable for a modern audience...A team of strong actors presents this sound production of 'Hedda (Gabler),' however they do not reach all its potential."

See it if Solid if not overly remarkable production. Good stage design, nice occasional choreography.
Don't see it if Somehow I wasn't too impressed though I don't have anything specific to complain about.
