"To Kill a Mockingbird" Review, Dan's Paper, Fall 2014
"Adult Jean Louise watches over the proceedings as a sort of Greek chorus, reliving her childhood as an older, wiser spectator. Dirksen’s presence makes To Kill a Mockingbird feel like a memory play in the vein of The Glass Menagerie, by Tennessee Williams. It’s a fascinating theatrical choice and one that pays off. Dirksen is also tasked with narrating a good deal of information to the audience... and Dirksen’s crisp, clear storytelling makes it feel significant."
