Goodfellas

“Watching [Goodfellas] is like getting strung out on pure sensation…Welker White as a drug courier who needs her lucky hat to make a coke delivery, and other performers in minor roles give the movie a frenzied, funny texture.”

— Pauline Kael, from 5001 Nights at the Movies and The New Yorker

Safe In Hell (Yale Rep)

Welker White is hysterical in every sense of the word as the tightly wound Puritan wife who just can’t take it anymore in the “dung-hole” of Salem. When her husband tells her times may get more difficult and they might have to live a little poorer, White’s answer, “Not — possible!” — is the comic cry of a woman at wit’s end.”

— Frank Rizzo, Variety

Fnu Lnu (SoHo Rep)

“ … assisted and thwarted by a trio of sorceresses, played seductively by Welker White, Zivia Flomenhaft and Sarah Abramson, who are the instruments of a dark organization called the Zobop Society.”

— Peter Marks, The New York Times

Search and Destroy (Broadway)

Welker White, the young actress who plays the dim-witted drug courier in the Martin Scorsese film “Goodfellas,” contributes an eerie cameo as a blank-voiced receptionist with a gruesome screenplay under her arm.

— Frank Rich, The New York Times

Jar the Floor (Second Stage)

“As Raisa, Welker White is moving when she nonchalantly displays her wounds, and even more so when she dreams about being queen of the Roman and Parisian cafés.”

— John Simon, New York Magazine

The Golden Dragon (Play Company)

Every entrée served at the eponymous restaurant of Roland Schimmelpfennig’s The Golden Dragon is meant to come hot, very hot. And certainly the production’s five “Chinese” cooks (multitasking actors such as Stephen Duff Webber and Welker White) generate palpable heat with their rapid role-switching, fervent physical-theater score and warm good humor.

— Helen Shaw, Time Out New York
