"The Trial... is riveting, especially when Tom's accuser, Mayella Ewell, takes the stand. As played by Erin Wilhelmi, holding herself like a bent pipe cleaner in a print dress, she is a living illustration of pathos transmuted into rage."

   -Jesse Green, New York Times (To Kill a Mockingbird)

"Deserving of special praise is Erin Wilhelmi, for her turn as the pitiful Mayella, who accuses Tom of rape but is really the victim of her father's abuse."

   -Peter Marks, The Washington Post (To Kill a Mockingbird)


"The changes in the play's central relationship are nicely recapitulated in Ms. Wilhelmi's performance as the daughter with a mission of her own; echoing her mother as played by Ms. White, she is more instinctive and apparently guileless in her manipulation..."

   -Jesse Green, New York Times (A Doll's House, Part 2)

"But the most startling change is in Emmy... Wilhelmi lets down the mask, playing a young woman nearly ruined by loss with more visible evidence of her hurt and anger. It's every bit as compelling."

   -Deadline (A Doll's House, Part 2)


“In the role of Sarah, Erin Wilhelmi gives one of the finest performances of the show, through her extraordinarily generated bouts of withdrawal, retreat, restraint, and collapse. Wilhelmi could never quite have better embodied the peculiarity of this production, in its display of a wobbling Irish voice on the American stage: mute, apologetic, and self-betraying.”
  -Irish (Translations)


“…the emotionally translucent Erin Wilhelmi as a mute woman.”
  -Adam Feldman, Time Out (Translations)

"... actress Erin Wilhelmi truly carries this part. Her performance as Adele is vulnerable, sad and lonely without being pitiful. She evokes instant empathy – you smile when she is hopeful, and feel dread as that hope dwindles away."

   -Bloody Disgusting (Sweet Sweet Lonely Girl)

"Much of the film's heavy lifting falls to Erin Wilhelmi, and the actress acquits herself wonderfully. Wilhelmi has a young Sissy Spacek quality to her, and she approaches the film with a wide-eyed grace." (Sweet Sweet Lonely Girl)

"Wilhelmi fills Adele with quiet despondency...You can't help but love her." (Sweet Sweet Lonely Girl)

"Wilhelmi perfectly captures Sheri's exhausted desperation, and, later, the almost frantic intensity with which she hatches her homemade-sandwich plan."

   -New York Times (American Hero)

"..the extremely winning Erin Wilhelmi.."

   -Variety (American Hero)

"It is side-splitting what Cantor and Wilhelmi manage to do..."

   -Theatre Mania (Core Values)

"Wilhelmi's conflicted Joelle is completely and disturbingly convincing."

   -Huffington Post (The Great God Pan)

"Wilhelmi is a sorceress of subtext as Joelle.."

   -Backstage Magazine (The Great God Pan)

"Wilhelmi is quite moving in a monologue about the hopeless job market."

   -Theatre Mania (Core Values)

"Wilhelmi is a shimmering mess of trembling nerves and sweetly naive enthusiasm as the shy new office assistant, Eliot. Wilhelmi seems fragile, but gives a strong performance as Eliot increasingly panics..."

   -Associated Press (Core Values)

"Wilhelmi, as the mousy new hire, creates a palpable wound-up energy that perfectly exudes the discomfort of a young person's first day at a new job and the utter lack of grace that comes from such an event."    

   -Theatre is (Core Values)

"As the young activist Julie, Ms. Wilhelmi looks a bit like an exotic forest creature herself, and sings Mr. Friedman's songs with a girlish air."

   -New York Times (The Great Immensity)

"Wilhelmi is a particular delight as the innocent, eager beaver Sheri."

   -Hollywood Reporter (American Hero)
