THE CONSULTANT   

THE CONSULTANT – Signal Ensemble Theatre

THE FOURTH WALSH – Katey Walsh

“My favorite scene is when the confident Maggie Cain (Barbara) bursts into the reception area. She dazzles Begley with her newfound independence. Cain plays career guru perfectly. When she gives Begley her card to come to a seminar, I want to go, too.”

CHICAGO READER – Justin Hayford

Ridiculous, open-hearted, trashy and touching.

THE FOURTH WALSH – Katey Walsh

“Silkaitis has her talented crew squeezing every funny aspect out of Renaud’s ballsy script…the audience was cackling so hard, I missed several lines.”

THE HAWK – Wesley James

“Our Mrs. Claus (Maggie Cain) is a master of the critical eyebrow and the slow burn punchline.”

CHICAGO TRIBUNE – Chris Jones

“A masterpiece rendered in all its fragile beauty…If the best-of-the-year lists were not already signed, delivered and sealed, I’d be ripping them to shreds.”

CHICAGO SUN-TIMES – Hedy Weiss

“… Amanda Wingfield (Maggie Cain, spot-on as the long-ago Southern belle).”

CHICAGOLAND THEATRE REVIEWS – Dan Zeff

“Cain’s Amanda is a shrew, a caricature of a Southern belle, and a brave and resilient woman determined to keep her family afloat at all costs. It’s a wonderfully shaded piece of acting.”

AROUND THE TOWN CHICAGO – Alan Bresloff: “…the hilarious Maggie Cain as Granny (after just seeing the new “Beverly Hillbillies , the Musical, I can tell you that this Granny is even funnier than that one)”
