Home Before Dark - The Ruckus Theater
Berger Park Coach House

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
Goldberg’s play is frequently difficult to watch. As one discomforting scene after another concludes, the impulse to cry out to Sean, to tell him that everything will be okay as long as he trusts his instincts, becomes irrepressible. This is due in large part to Wilhelm, who is completely and unshakably present in Sean’s longing.
— Kevin Greene, Newcity Stage

RENT - Metropolis Performing Arts Centre

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.

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
The No Exit Cafe

... and Will Wilhelm, whose Annas could tour with Lady Gaga, as is.
— Stephen Best, Times Square Chronicles
This Cast Makes ‘Superstar’ Sound New:
These days, what most people want to know before they head to “Jesus Christ Superstar” is if the cast can sing the Andrew Lloyd Webber-Tim Rice score. And in the case of director Fred Anzevino’s new production, yes, they can.
— Chris Jones, Chicago Tribune
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

Bette, Live at the Continental Baths - Hell in a Handbag Productions
Mary's Attic

I will NEVER think of ‘Leader of the Pack’ in the same way again, after I heard Will Wilhelm’s rendition.
— Carol Moore, Spotlight on Lake
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. With their tiny towels and powerful voices, they ironically and attractively turn traditional nightclub misogyny on its ear, happy to service Queen M.

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

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
