“Whitney Morse shines as Miss Minerva Pilbeam. While stern and straightforward in character, Whitney Morse has an eloquent, one of a kind character voice and strong stage presence that stands out among the cast, and delivers some terrific laugh lines along the way.” – Luke Simone for The Chicago Stage Standard.

‘The performance (and especially the singing) of Whitney Morse as Diana, the mother whose illness threatens to wreck her family as well as her own life, suggests much bigger things in her future: she’s rueful but free of self-pity, funny without resorting to stereotype, and all-around engaging.” – Kelly Kleiman for Dueling Critics

“Whitney Morse cycles between sweetness, sarcasm, and psychosis but is at her most chilling acting out the aftereffects of electroshock therapy and sedation” – Marissa Oberlander for The Chicago Reader

“Whitney Morse, who I really liked last year in The Children’s Hour in another dramatically-intense role, is outstanding here as Diana.” – Seth Saith for SethSaith.Blogspot.com

“Whitney Morse, one of Chicago’s finest young actresses, thoroughly inhabits the role of Brooke. A stunningly versatile performer, memorable for her diverse performances in productions of “The Children’s Hour” and “Accomplice,” Ms. Morse makes this young writer, who’s suffered through depression and the demands of family pressure, a real, live woman. The empathy and honesty she brings to the stage is heartfelt and a palpable.” – Colin Douglass

“Whitney Morse, another area actress who has impressed in past productions (from Jedlicka’s “Accomplice” to Pride Films and Plays‘ “The Children’s Hour”) adds the role of German-born Eva to her varied resume. Without making Eva a caricature, Ms. Morse offers just enough hint of dialect to make her character convincing. She easily conveys everything this role demands, from supportive friend to smoldering sexpot. Once again Whitney Morse demonstrates what a surprising and versatile young actress she’s become in a short time. In my book, she is  an artist to watch.” – Colin Douglas, Chicago Theatre Review Full Review “Carey Lee Burton and Whitney Morse portray their long suffering wives. They both capture the fear and loneliness of women whose husbands are gone for months at a time.   Burton provides some of the most emotional moments in the play. We can relate to her as she goes from failed project to failed project, trying to find meaning in her life beyond her marriage.   Whitney Morse is the worldly Eva, a German who just wants more excitement in her mundane life. Her German accent is excellent- and she has a warm presence on stage.” – Drew Wanket, Chicago Stage Standard Full Review

A Long Overdue Update

After working a full season at First Folio Theatre I took a much needed and necessary one year maternity leave.  In September of 2013 I returned to the Chicago Theatre Scene in full force staring in Accomplice at Jedlicka Performing Arts Center in Cicero.  It was great fun and I got to kill lots of people.

Then, shortly after closing Accomplice, I began rehearsals for The Children’s Hour with Pride Films & Plays.  That is currently open and runs until February 9th 2014.

And just for fun, here is a photo of my newest life long cast mate – My dearest son Clifford – f_IMG570400000
