Star Tribune, Chris Hewitt:  “Noises offstage and unseen events are designed to make us curious about all of the dramas happening in this beautiful home (Chelsea M. Warren’s set is a cozy stunner, especially when lighting designer Marcus Dilliard’s hearth illuminates it).”

City Pages, Jay Gabler: “The Wickhams takes place simultaneously with Miss Bennet, on a lower level of the vast mansion where Elizabeth (Sun Mee Chomet, one of three returning Miss Bennet cast members) has settled down in wedded bliss with Mr. Darcy (James Rodríguez). That puts us in the servants’ kitchen (expansively rendered by set designer Chelsea M. Warren), where we meet three members of the Pemberley staff and explore the marriage of the loquacious Lydia Wickham, née Bennett (Kelsey Didion).”

Twin Cities Arts Reader, Kit Bix: “This time, Gunderson and Melcon shift the focus from upstairs to downstairs, and we find ourselves in a dreamy, expansive, melon-green basement kitchen – exquisitely designed by Chelsea M. Warren – with “the help” and frequent visits from the upstairs inhabitants.”
