JIM BLANCHETTE certified reviewer June 24, 2019
I can't say enough great things about this show. The cast is fantastic and 100% buying into the style of the piece, lovingly crafted by director Arlo Sanders. It would take me paragraphs to describe the incredible character work by the entire cast. Just go see it. You'll see how good they are for yourself. However, I will take space to heap praises on playwright Pamela Eberhardt. It took her 16 years to chase down the rights to adapt the book, and she obviously honed her craft to razor sharpness in the meantime. Every character shines with unique and lovely peculiarity. Wigfield feels like an amalgam of an absurdist fairy tale and a cautionary morality play. Oddity plays like normalcy. I'm excited to see what she comes up with next becaus... full review

A scatological ride through a cavalcade of ridiculous, over-the-top, 'salt of the earth' folks trying to 'get one over' on the U.S. government. Filled with laughs, it doesn't have much of a message, but it's a damned fine amount of fun.... full review

Hilarious parody of Our Town that sends up the American small town. Super weird and playful, with stellar performances. ... full review

Went and saw "Wigfield" at the Fringe Festival previews last night and I am so glad I did! The show made me laugh out loud. I must give props to a wonderful ensemble cast who bring to life some strangely loveable characters. I do not want to give away the story but I will say, if you love a parade you will love this show.... full review

If you’ve seen any of their previous shows, then you already know you can expect brilliant writing and hilarious acting. Their newest play is no exception! Wholly original and clever, I enjoyed it immensely. This show was Pamela’s dream to make and you can see all the love put into the development. Highly recommend!... full review

Paced to the rhythm of Stephen Colbert(?)’s ironic voice, this play immediately pulls you into its wiggy town and wayward citizens, three of whom claim to be the mayor. An astonishing cast delivers Pamela Quinn Eberhardt’s tight script with everything required from stupidity to slovenliness to ennui. Bad things happen ... in the most hilarious way possible. A 15 year quest by Eberhardt to wrestle onto the boards, this adaptation of the Stephen Colbert-Amy Sedaris-Paul Dinello novel deserves a full production. When it does, I'll be one of the first in line to see it again.... full review

Wigfield was so funny and I loved every character. KUDOS to the adaption. It was a great experience to be in the town of Wigfield. It felt like I was actually part of it. Well done!... full review

A fantastic ensemble makes this fantastical journey into a truly terrible town full of outrageous characters a fun experience with the potential for laughs. From false mustaches that just won't stay on to some of the best costume concoctions you can find, the cast morphs from one moment to the next, and in some cases, from one character to the next, with an ease that can make your head spin in pure delight.... full review
