The whole 90 minutes will have you chortling and howling with laughter as you marvel at the breakneck wit and depth of George’s dialog, and the perfect portrayals of her characters expertly directed by Jeremy Wechsler.

On the surface, George's story moves with clockwork precision as Simpkins’s seductive charmer makes her play for all the women. But like *The Bacchae*, there’s an undercurrent of horror running through the perfectly wrought comedic performances of Wechsler’s ensemble.
— Kerry Reid, Chicago Reader
Wechsler's production is captivating. Kelli Simpkins is beyond delightful. The heartbreak of our climate crisis meets catharsis in Hurricane Diane.
— New City
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! Directed by Jeremy Wechsler, Hurricane Diane a stark (and utterly hilarious) reminder that we have to play nice with our world. Gloriously over the top, Wechsler keeps us on our toes in a clever comedy full of outrageous characters and inventive spectacle.
— Chicago on Stage
Totally goofy with a wide array of laugh lines sure to please. Wechsler gets distinctive characterizations from the five actors, with Simpkins showing off her comedic skills well.
