Dear Elizabeth by Sarah Ruhl

Theatre Nova
Ann Arbor, MI
September 2016

Michigan premiere

 " David Wolber,  who directed Dear Elizabeth, once again shows he can generate wonderful energy in Theatre Nova’s small space. The character of Lowell writes in one letter that it is as if the two are “connected by a stiff wire.”  Wolber  orchestrated that dynamic extremely well." -David Kiley,  EncoreMichigan.com

 "Director  David Wolber  gets much credit, too, for adding his own creative touches, effectively using props, different areas of the set, and a movement pattern for the actors – partly inspired by Lowell’s frustrated observation that the two poets seem connected by a wire, so that when one moves, the other does as well – that keeps the audience engaged." -Jenn McKee,  Pulp - Arts Around Ann Arbor

 "...we’ve suddenly gone down the rabbit hole of addiction.  Wolber  and actress Carrie Jay Sayer handle the shift with sensitivity, not playing it too heavily or too lightly, but rather suggesting a haunting, all-too-natural progression into darkness. ( Wolber  specializes in plays about artists and the process of creation, so play and director are ideally matched here.)" - Jenn McKee,  Pulp: ARTS AROUND ANN ARBOR

 "Director  David Wolber  has done an exceptional job of giving the show energy and excitement and allowing the intensity generated throughout the letters to show through in his actors." -Daniel Skora,  It's All Theatre
