EMILIE article in Seattle Times – 2010

Great reviews fo Silent Sky at South Coast Rep:

“The dialogue sublime and the performances enormously engrossing,” – Broadway World

“Perfection.” – The Examiner

“Silent Sky makes for just the right blend of human relationships, science, and romance.” – StageSceneLA.com

“Charmingly lyrical – With a penchant for subtle wit and sincerely earnest dialogue—the sort of beguiling back-and-forth you’d expect from the best period wordplays on premium TV scripts—Gunderson has a nicely-crafted play that gives us a headstrong heroine nerd to root for from America’s little-known historical margins.” – BroadwayWorld
