The New York Times
By D. J. R. Bruckner
His wife, Aline, as Wendy
Barrie-Wilson realizes her, is one of Ibsen's
most pitiable victims, reduced to a cypher not only by her husband's manipulations
but also by her own unexamined principles of propriety and moral duty.
Wendy Barrie-Wilson was impeccable as Mrs. Solness, fusing dorrow and resignation into an incredibly rich mixture of deep emotions. Along with Parlato, Barrie-Wilson's near-perfect performance became the heart of the show.
Wendy Barrie-Wilson provides the play's strongest performance as Aline. She has given this unhappy, dark woman textures that could elicit sympathy from the audience if her fellow performers worked at her level.
