RENT - Metropolis Performing Arts Centre
(BroadwayWorld Chicago Award - Best Actor in a Musical)

The show does feature some fine performances, most notably Will Wilhem’s star turn as the sweet, sassy cross-dressing Angel.
— Jack Helbig, Chicago Reader
Angel ... played to perfection by Will Wilhelm.
— Alan Bresloff, Around the Town Chicago
Will Wilhelm did Angel proud, pulling off the sense that she could have pas-de-bourree’d right out of Roscoe’s at 3 AM with grace, gusto, and 6-inch heels.
— Erin Roche, PerformInk
Without a doubt, it is Will Wilhelm as the street percussionist drumming drag queen Angel who is the heart, soul and legacy of ‘Rent.’ Let me say that Angel’s death is handled beautifully – both visually and sensitively.
— Regina Belt-Daniels, Northwest Herald

Home Before Dark - The Ruckus Theater

The greatest asset of Josh Sobel’s staging for the Ruckus is Will Wilhelm, whose sullen and hurting Sean is—in true teenager fashion—alternately sweet and exasperating.
— Zac Thompson, Chicago Reader
Wilhelm ... is completely and unshakably present.
— Kevin Greene, Newcity Stage

Straight White Men - Steppenwolf Theatre Company

Will Wilhelm is hysterical as [they mingle] with the audience members, bringing smiles to many of their faces.
— Alan Bresloff, Around the Town Chicago

Jesus Christ Superstar - Theo Ubique Cabaret Theatre

Other standouts in this cast are ... Will Wilhelm, whose purring and posturing make Annas as despicable as he is winsome.
— Colin Douglas, Chicago Theatre Review
... and Will Wilhelm, whose Annas could tour with Lady Gaga, as is.
— Stephen Best, Times Square Chronicles

Bette, Live at the Continental Baths - Hell in a Handbag Productions

I will NEVER think of ‘Leader of the Pack’ in the same way again, after I heard Will Wilhelm’s rendition.

TJ Crawford and Will Wilhelm bring the house down with great sounds of [Bette’s] music and comic touches.
— Alan Bresloff, Around the Town Chicago
Jackson is capably backed by the Bathhouse Boys, T.J. Crawford and Will Wilhelm. In addition to being talented vocalists in their own right, [they] provide cheeky humor (pun definitely intended) as Midler’s Ronettes for the newly GLBT-awakened 1970s.
— Becky Sarwate, Edge Media Network

Peter and the Starcatcher - Metropolis Performing Arts Centre

[Ryan Hamman and Will Wilhelm] are very funny. A note about Wilhelm. I have seen [them] do some bits over time, but have never seen [them] tackle a role such as this one. [They are] fun to watch and I am in hopes [they] will continue to grow in our theater scene.
— Alan Bresloff, Around the Town Chicago
