"Gavigan and Wilder, two of the best young actors in town — his memorable work includes a troubled ex-soldier in Theater J’s “The Admission,” and hers the odd gentile out in Studio Theatre’s “Bad Jews” — contribute first-rate seriocomic performances. "

-Washington Post, Peter Marks

"Wilder, as the Mad Men housewife Honey, is a breath of fresh air in a play that often needs someone to open a metaphorical window, and her delivery is unerringly hilarious."

- DC Metro Theatre Arts

"Wilder’s Honey is a hilarious drunk, high as a kite, oblivious to the carnage around her until she finally vomits and goes to sleep on the cool bathroom tiles."

"Even with all the “meta” filtering, “An Octoroon” can be enjoyed as in-the-know satire. Whether it’s via Odom’s funnily swaggering white hero or Castillo-Midyett expertly overdoing the groveling thing or entitled Southern belle Dora (the sharp Maggie Wilder) swanning around in costume designer Ivania Stack’s pricelessly economy-size ball gowns, director Garrett consistently keeps us entertained, even as the proceedings walk right up to edge of offensiveness."

WHEN SHE HAD WINGS

Imagination Stage

Bad Jews

Studio Theatre

Directed by Serge Seiden




"But B (who gets a charming but sincere treatment from on-the-rise actress Maggie Wilder) is at the age where doting fathers inspire more embarrassment than ebullience."

-DC Theatre Scene

"Maggie Wilder does a great balancing act portraying a child who is beginning to mature."

- DC Metro Theatre Arts

"Beatrix (Maggie Wilder, offering up a perfect mix of childlike innocence and maturity), or "B" as she likes to be called, is on the cusp of turning ten and she's not particularly happy about reaching that double-digit milestone."

- Broadway World

“B” or Beatrix, played by Maggie Wilder, who is a delight and a natural on stage, is a nine-year-old girl who lives in the present time and in the next few days will turn ten."

Maggie Wilder

"Avery is played with fabulous slow-burn timing by Maggie (Erwin) Wilder, recently seen as the ditzy Gentile in another whip-smart comedy, “Bad Jews” (still running at Studio Theatre). (Erwin) Wilder is terrific at the dripping disdain of hip youth schooling out-of-it old folks, but she’s also absorbing when the confident Avery unexpectedly finds herself in the same unhappy pickle as Catherine and Gwen. "

-Washington Post, Nelson Pressley

"Maggie (Erwin) Wilder spits out her acidic lines with perfect timing and adolescent inflection, deftly running away with nearly every scene she’s in."

- DC Theatre Scene

"(Erwin) Wilder, however - perhaps because her character has the most one line zingers - makes the greatest impression. Her caustic attitude and portrayal of a young adult that knows so much yet knows so little is profoundly realistic, perceptive, and engaging."

- Broadway World

"Paulik and (Erwin) Wilder are both splendid in these generally less showy roles, though Erwin also gets a fabulous comic moment, befitting her character’s name." 

- Washington Post, Peter Marks

"Maggie (Erwin) Wilder plays the peacemaker, too, but through innocence rather than experience. Her earnestness leaves the other characters angry, bemused, pitying and softened by turns, but leaves the audience snorting with laughter the whole way. (Erwin) Wilder does great justice to the complexity of a character who could be played simply (or simple-mindedly) and that shows great craft. Maggie (Erwin) Wilder is an actress to watch out for."

- Broadway World

"She seems a bit dim at first, a typical airhead ingenue, but in Maggie (Erwin) Wilder’s spitfire performance, Melody’s surprising character arc becomes a dazzling stroke of brilliance. Just when the fray could not be more fraught with anger, the sweet-tempered Melody, an opera singer manqué, offers to sing a song to calm things down. (Erwin)Wilder’s ensuing off-key rendition of “Summertime” from Porgy and Bess had the audience in stitches and nearly stopped the show."
