Venus in Fur at Moonlight Stage Company, Raleigh, NC
“Ali Evarts is a true delight as Vanda. When the nervous Vanda first bursts in, the butterflies-in-her-stomach are so apparent that they are almost actually visible. And the instantaneous shifts from actor to character and back again are phenomenal.”
- Kurt Benrud, Triangle Arts & Entertainment
“Just go see this play; it is probably the best hour and a half in Raleigh you will spend this side of Easter...
"Ali Evarts’ transitions between Vanda and Wanda are delightfully sublime. Her braiding of the two characters lulls both the audience and Patrick Osteen’s multi-layered Thomas/Severin into a warm sense of security. Knowing we are safe with the mistress…or are we?"
- Naveed Moeed, Chatham Life & Style
"In a promising directorial debut, UNC alum Katie Paxton clearly knows the world of odd auditions. She deftly guides a prismatic Evarts and a bemused Osteen through these hairpin curves."
- Byron Woods, INDYWeek
