 "'The Velocity of Autumn' features gripping performances by Jane McFarlane and Chris Korte. The play marks  David Wolber’s  second directorial project with Matrix Theatre this season – he previously directed “A Kid Like Jake.” True to form,  Wolber’s  touch with uncomfortable subjects is deft, with just enough tension to keep the story line taut, and enough humor to keep it comfortable." -  Patty Nolan, Examiner.com

 "Director  David Wolber  is right at home with this material, and he has mounted this production with the professionalism and economy he brought to shows when he was  artistic director of Ann Arbor’s Performance Network. He is definitely an asset to the Matrix, the tiny black-box theater in southwest Detroit that's celebrating its 25th anniversary this year." -  John Monaghan, Detroit Free Press
