Nicky Guadagni portrays women drawn from Carolyn Smart’s book of poetic monologues. The arresting actor makes fine use of the imagistically sharp and often humorous text. Guadagni’s arresting work defines each both vocally and physically. Guadagni defines each character both vocally and physically Under Layne Coleman’s direction this is a production to savour for its language and performance; Guadagni invites us to lean in and listen closely to what each woman has to share. NNNN Summerworks Festival Review: Jon Kaplan Toronto NOW Magazine
“In Carolyn Smart, these women have found a deeply feeling and deeply attentive witness.” Anne Michaels writer “Fugitive Pieces”
“With the spectacular Nicky Guadagni as our guide to the inner worlds of [these] formidable women, Hooked is an unforgettable evening of theatre” – Judith Thompson Playwright ~ Amnesty International Freedom of Expression Award Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2009
As soon as the actress, Nicky Guadagni came on stage I knew I was going to like whatever she did. There was something about her energy and her face which is so expressive and open that even before she spoke, I was “Hooked” Mooney on Theatre
The text beautiful poetry; the performance sublime Nicky delivers an exquisite, note-perfect performance — tuned to the moment, and to the character she’s inhabiting making these characters so distinct- come alive and so individualistic. To discover these women so memorable in their time but in history almost forgot …… an experience to remember. Brian D. Johnson, Maclean`s Magazine
