‘Travels of Angelica’ creates theater magic
“Travels of Angelica” takes place in two different worlds….The “back story” takes place in 1657, first in England where Alexander Crumpler (Erik Lochtefeld) flees an angry mob with his mentally-challenged teen-age daughter, Lucia (Heather Wood). Faced with charges of sedition for his political writings, he flees to America and disappears…The acting is solid throughout, especially in Wood’s portrayal of the child-minded teenager Lucia…”

Romeo and Juliet at The Old Globe, San Diego
San Diego Union Tribune
“"But as Juliet, Heather Wood stands out from the start.
“Fresh-faced and innocent as we first meet her (Seer actually has her blowing bubbles, a clever visual touch), she transforms impressively into a determined and sure-footed presence as the play goes on.
Wood's Juliet opens the play's second half with a powerful and moving monologue, and when she receives the news that Romeo has killed Tybalt, she gives herself over to a seething roil of emotions.
In a subsequent moment, when Juliet defies her outraged father by refusing to marry the nobleman Paris, you can see this once-flighty girl
grow up before your eyes."

“...only Heather Wood’s
Juliet truly sparkles. A tiny, delicious, plucky treasure, she makes
believable all the fuss over her precious person and launches herself
into her unexpected new life without hesitation.”
North County Times on Heather in Romeo and Juliet
"Entering sweetly with a bubble-pipe, Wood's Juliet also grows to maturity and courage, thanks to her love for this son of her parents' enemy. She speaks clearly, if plainly in the "Holy Palmers" sonnet in which the pair first encounter one another. Looking like the young Julie Christie, she's wonderfully radiant and smitten in the first so-called balcony scene where she outdoes Romeo in affection, telling him she vowed her heart ‘before thou didst request it.’

“...there were diamonds in the rough. Fresh-faced Heather Wood was delightful and tragic.
She navigated the emotions Juliet so well that she played the stage like a carousel horse, hitting every golden ring perfectly. Laughs and tears for her, indeed. Watch that one.
Catch her blowing bubbles when she makes her first entrance.”

"Wood plays Rebecca Gibbs and an on-the-edge, Mrs. Soames. Wood delivers some very
witty dialogue while hitting the correct emotional marks."
