"Vitals depends on its strong script, but also needs an actor who’s up to the high-pressure task of delivery. Luckily, Lauren Wolanski does an electric job with the role of Anna. In her introduction to the play, Small stresses the importance of not leading with or having the role overwhelmed by trauma, and Wolanski gives us a multifaceted, nuanced and unusual character, mixing outspoken toughness and sarcasm with compassion, and aloofness with an ultimate vulnerability." - Ilana Lucas, Mooney on Theatre
