New York Times "A creeping strangeness takes hold, as does an affection for these women, muddling perkily through their sometimes terribly circumscribed existences. Their secret lives, in the end, are not so different from our own."
Village Voice "The deconstruction honors Fornés's essence, and as an intriguing and creative piece in its own right, Wickets is faux-site-specific performance at its best."
New York Post "NOW that "Boeing-Boe ing" has flown the coop, the sexiest stewardesses in the theater these days are at "Wickets" - an inventive and immersing theatrical experience that's a lot cheaper (and more fun) than an actual flight to Paris."
The Gothamist "It's a brilliant concept, and one that gives the ensemble great freedom to explore Fornes's ideas about feminism and chauvinism in a theatrically fecund milieu, while staying true to the original's avant-garde essence."
CurtainUp "The gifted actors allow bits of individual personality to surface, even while playing stereotypes. The result is a fantastic example of ensemble acting, led by equally gifted directors Clove Galilee and Jenny Rogers."
British Theatre Guide "Overall this is a sensitive and successful production which enfolds its audience into a world where a successful sorority of women can communicate with one another as equals, without catty or bitchy intrusions due to the presence of men." "Wickets is thought-provoking, wonderfully inventive theatre. But the Wicket air terminal at 3LD closes January 25th, so buy your tickets soon because this is a flight you shouldn't miss."
New Theater Corps "It’s really a disservice to reduce these women to labels, given the rich complexity with which the actresses embody them."
