"Gardens" has a superb cast, anchored by Twin Cities stalwarts Wingert and Hendrickson. She imbues her pantsuit-ed doyenne with all the righteousness and sweetness you'd expect of a privileged woman genuinely unaware of her ignorance. Hendrickson gives Frank a similar likability, and textbook-sharp timing."
"The laughs flow freely — this is one of the funniest shows to hit the Guthrie stage in the last few seasons..."
"In the razor-sharp 'Native Gardens' white privilege fuels a ridiculous neighbor dispute."
"Hendrickson's Frank is a manchild who unofficially has ceded head of house duties to his wife, while investing himself in his garden like a kid obsessed with video games. His depiction of Frank's barely contained emotional breakdown over the fence line's threat to his garden is both hilarious and touching."
