Theatre[edit]

Wolter co-founded VS. Theatre Company (pronounced "versus") in 2003.

The company's first production, the West Coast premiere of "The Credeaux Canvas" in which Wolter starred as 'Amelia', was widely praised earning the Los Angeles Times "Critics Choice" who said "The performances are rich, spontaneous, and often side-splittingly funny".[5] It was followed by acclaimed[6] productions of John Corwin's "Navy Pier" and John Patrick Shanley's "Beggars in the House of Plenty".

Production[edit]

In 2007 Wolter and VS. Theatre's co-production with The Elephant Theatre Company of "In Arabia We'd all be Kings" was named "Best Production" by the Los Angeles Drama Critic's Circle.[7]

Wolter followed that by co-producing a 2008 staging of John Kolvenbach's "On An Average Day" which earned The Los Angeles Times "Critics Choice",[8] Backstage West's "Critics Pick"[9] and was described as "...searing ...a tour de force" by Variety.[10] The success of the production led to a transfer to Chicago where Wolter's Los Angeles cast reprised their roles in a joint venture with the 'Route 66 Theatre Company'.[11] A complimentary review in The Chicago Tribune noted the casts "...quality."[12]

On March 19, 2011 Wolter's production of the West coast premiere of Neil LaBute's "The Mercy Seat"[13] opened in Los Angeles.[14] She wrote and published a short animated promotional clip to support the production.[15]
