Whit's Doppelganger Reviews:
Rachel Weinberg Reviews
"Whit K. Lee is manic and entertaining as the young American entrepreneur Wen. Wen only wants cheap copper for his electronic devices, and yet Lee is delightful when he becomes swept up in the shenanigans of those around him."
Buzz Center Stage by Ken Payne
"Steppenwolf smartly provides Wilson with an airtight supporting cast of premium talent... Whit K. Lee as businessman Wen Xiaoping... can do no wrong, also piercingly funny in several scenes."
Daily Harold by Barbara Vitello
"The performances are delightfully broad. Landau, who has a flair for physical comedy, sets a breakneck pace, one her first-rate cast ably maintains."
NewCityStage BY KEVIN GREENE
"With an ensemble that reflects Steppenwolf’s historic past and their pursuit of an even richer future (...Whit K. Lee... you have to squint just to behold the glint of such immaculate brilliance), “The Doppelgänger” seems poised for enormous success."
