A Raisin in the Sun

Milwaukee Repertory Theatre, dir. by Ron OJ Parson

Russ Bickerstaff, ExpressMilwaukee.com
Mildred Marie Langford is compelling as Beneatha; the intellectually inexhaustible young woman who aspires to be a doctor. Langford balances a sharp pose with a deep impetuosity that makes for a really textured characterization.

Mike Fischer, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
Mildred Marie Langford (Beneatha) and Christophe Abiel (Asagai) are illustrative of what makes this production special.

Christina Wright, Third Coast Digest
Ratcliff, Stevens, Johnson, Oglesby and Langford bring just the right balance of tension and levity to the issues, and the right energy into their respective characters. Langford, with her affected accent and hilarious attempt at African dancing, draws the idealistic Beneatha well.

FAILURE: A Love Story

Victory Gardens Theatre, dir. by Seth Bockley

Michael Roberts, ShowBiz Chicago
Mildred Marie Langford is sensational as the lovelorn eldest Fail, Gertrude, who finds a final solace in the man that won the hearts of two her dead sisters.

Katy Walsh, The Fourth Walsh
Under the masterful direction of Seth Bockley, this cast is sublime: Mildred Marie Langford, Emjoy Gavino, Baize Buzan, Matt Fletcher, Michael Salinas, Janet Ulrich-Brooks and Guy Massey. They are equally outstanding at zinging the one-liners and plucking at the heartstrings. This cast showcases a lifetime of minutes with instantaneous playfulness, and loving, lingering depth.

13 Clocks

Lifeline Theatre, dir. by Amanda Delheimer-Dimond

Sarah Terez Rosenblum, Centerstage
Under the direction of Amanda Delheimer’s even direction, the small cast remains true to the story’s spirit. Mildred Marie Langford as Princess Saralinde was particularly effective, a relaxed yet vibrant stage presence throughout.

VENUS

Steppenwolf Theatre, dir. by Jess McLeod

Venus Zarris, Chicago Stage Review
Mildred Marie Langford is not only beautiful as The Venus Hottentot, but also strikes a powerful balance between exploited victim and hopeful soul. Her brief closing monologue is lovely, as she manifests a sweet melancholy longing that breaks the heart.

Katy Walsh, Chicago Now
Mildred Marie Langford (Venus) is heartbreaking as the provocative victim.  Langford meets adversity with strong but vulnerable adaptability.

IN DARFUR

Timeline Theatre, dir. Nick Bowling

 Catey Sullivan, Chicago Theater Beat
A deceptively soft-spoken powerhouse, Langford gets a well-deserved showcase with In Darfur. She manages a bravura turn.

Lisa Buscani, New City Stage
Langford is a revelation; she nails her character’s humanity.

Lawrence Bommer, Chicago Stage Style
Mildred Langford plays the all suffering Hawa with the dignity of Antigone.

Chris Jones, Chicago Tribune
When Langford has the stage, when this fine actress gets the chance to represent the real human pain on the ground, the piece hits you in the guts.

Colin Douglas, Centerstage
Nick Bowling’s 7-member cast, many of whom play multiple characters, is as skilled and powerful as any ensemble found on Broadway or the West End.

Colin Douglas, Centerstage
Ms Langford puts a face onto the hundreds of thousand Sudanese refugees with dignity and valor.

12 OPHELIAS

Trap Door Theatre, dir. by Kate Hendrickson

NewCity Chicago, Monica Westin
Mildred Marie Langford is valiant and opulent as Ophelia.

Kerry Reid, Chicago Reader
Mildred Marie Langford’s earthy, anguished take on Ophelia meshes well with the wry compassion of Jen Ellison and Casey Chapman as sort-of narrators R and G and the Appalachian-inflected songs, played by an ensemble of white-clad women.

Tom Williams, Chicago Critic
Mildred Marie Langford and Kevin Lucero anchor the piece with their powerfully manic performances laced with sensuality and lust.
