“Powerful…rare…sensual…Katherine Michelle Tanner is utterly, enchantingly right as the girlish housewife and mother in a gilded cage…well-etched performances by Lauren Wood and Steve Garland. John Woodson is a fine, florid Dr. Rank. Director Seth Gordon’s staging is faithful to the period.” -John Fleming,Tampa Bay Times

"Welcome to the Doll's House...Katherine Michelle Tanner plays Nora...Wonderful impersonation. Torvald, impeccably portrayed by Christopher Swan. John Woodson seems to have stepped right out of Ibsen's Norway as Dr. Rank. Top-notch are also Jill Davis' set and Frank Chavez's period costumes. ... Can still shock and illuminate." - Mark E. Leib, Creative Loafing

“It delivers a compelling buildup to one of the most famous final scenes in theatrical history. Katherine Michelle Tanner as Nora Helmer, is playful and filled with energy and childish excitement…with utter conviction. A Doll’s House remains a potent statement… Often gripping…has a fresh and contemporary flavor. The theater's wide stage is beautifully designed and decorated. A clear-eyed view of how, more than 140 years later, "A Doll's House" still has some surprising things to say.” – Jay Handelman, Sarasota Herald-Tribune

“Still bracingly relevant, Ibsen's masterpiece, in a striking contemporary translation, offers no safer conclusions today than when it stormed stages of 19th-century Europe.”
-NY Times

It’s Christmas Eve and sweet, cheery Nora Helmer is reveling in her role as wife and mother. Her husband has just been made manager of the local bank, and it looks as though she and her family are finally on the brink of unadulterated financial freedom…until a knock at the door threatens to destroy her doll house of a world forever. Henrik Ibsen's masterpiece speaks just as powerfully today as it did nearly 150 years ago, questioning how we define ourselves as individuals and as a society in the face of the challenging realities of life.
