“…an ensemble that absolutely commits to the inanity… Mrs. Peacock (Nancy Wagner) is as prim and fussy as your great-great aunt with the plastic-covered furniture.” – Catey Sullivan, Chicago Sun Times
“Mercury Theatre’s CLUE is a comedic delight…the ensemble lands each and every moment, maximizing the laughs but maintaining the integrity…It’s a near masterclass in how farce should be performed…Nancy Wagner nicely plays the frazzled Mrs. Peacock, underscoring the character’s desire to appear perfectly innocent in one moment, while sneaking sips from a flask in the next.” – Rachel Weinberg, Broadway World.com
“…the players meet the challenge of bringing to life roles created by comic megastars and making them their own…Nancy Wagner (Mrs. Peacock) is spectacularly hysterical in all the right ways.” – Aaron Hunt, New City Stage
“The cast members are a truly a delight, both individually and collectively. …Nancy Wagner (Mrs. Peacock) makes choices that distance her from the untouchable performance of her counterpart in the film. Her dottiness comes across as more explicitly calculating, which gives her version of the character an effective edge of menace.” – Christine M. Malcom, Talkin’ Broadway
“…a cast that is sheer perfection. …Mrs. Peacock (played to perfection by Nancy Wagner).” – Alan Bresloff, Around the Town Chicago
“…all of the performers, many from Chicago’s musical theater world, are consummate comedic pros…” – Chris Jones, Chicago Tribune
“…for those who aren’t fans (of the original movie) but still love a good ensemble show with lots of jokes and physical comedy would find this show to be a fun night out.” – Alexis Bugajski, Picture This Post
“…a drop-dead, bonafide beauty of a black comedy… topnotch performance from Chicago’s finest comedic actors, all of whom are at the top of their game…Each mysteriously eccentric personage is delightfully played to the hilt. Nancy Wagner makes an humorous, uptight Mrs. Peacock, modestly turning down any alcoholic drink but secretly taking a hit from her concealed flask…tireless talent of each of these wonderfully gifted actors” Colin Douglas, Chicago Theatre Review
“…it’s delightful. …Nancy Wagner’s Mrs. Peacock is over the top; a caricature of a character we know as a person, even if she was once just a brightly colored plastic play piece.” - CJ Burroughs, Theatre in Review
