- THE WOLVES Score Big at the St. Louis Rep
Director Melissa Rain Anderson has done marvelous work in this intricately complex piece.
The sometimes overlapping chatter attains a musical quality-and it is so realistic.
– Steve Callahan, Broadway World
- 'The Wolves' is unlike anything you've seen before
Anderson gets strong performances from a cast that includes Maya J. Christian, Colleen Dougherty, Cecily Dowd, Esmeralda Garza, Mary Katharine Harris, CeCe Hill, Rachael Logue, Cassandra Lopez and Keaton Whittaker as the teammates and Nancy Bell.
DeLappe has an original voice that cries out to be heard, and “The Wolves” is an experience unlike anything you’ve seen before.

- ...director Melissa Rain Anderson gives full weight to the shadows in Dickens’s fable, as well as his message about the need for human goodness and generosity in an often grim and frightening world. This doesn’t mean the production is preachy or solemn, or that it lessens the story’s bright magic.
– Juliet Wittman, Westword, Denver, CO
- ...the Denver Center's stellar production, directed by Melissa Rain Anderson... This production features a wonderfully diverse cast that freshens things up by disposing of some old tropes.
– Alex Miller, Vail Daily
- Yes, [Scrooge] is still scary and mean, but his portrayal of the role, as directed by Melissa Rain Anderson, has given him more humanity, and more earnest desire to make personal changes than seen in many past productions.
