Lexi Langs, Gulf View Drive 1.jpg

“The company mounted fetching versions of “Last Train to Nibroc” and “See Rock City,” the first two installments, in 2017 and 2018. The return of Wood Van Meter and Lexi Langs, who aced the roles of Raleigh and May in those plays — and are assisted here by a fine supporting cast — makes “Gulf View Drive” a must-see for audiences who caught the earlier productions.

The charged give-and-take between Langs’s good-hearted but sometimes prickly May and Van Meter’s affable Raleigh is the heart of the story . . . This nicely paced production provides a rare opportunity to return to a pair of irresistible stage characters.” – Celia Wren, The Washington Post 

“The play benefits from having an excellent cast – four of the five actors are playing the same roles they had in the previous plays – plus an accomplished director; a trio of terrific set, sound, and lighting designers; and a beautifully wrought play.

The two romantic leads – Wood Van Meter as Raleigh Brummett and Lexi Langs as May – share easy chemistry as they flirt and fight their way through the demands that threaten to split them apart.” - Ravelle Brickman, DC Metro Theatre Arts

“Gulf View Drive at Washington Stage Guild: Masterful.  Playing the couple for Washington Stage Guild as they have in the previous two plays, Lexi Langs and Wood Van Meter return to these roles once again. Langs finds a delicate balance between May’s condescending nature and her desire to accept change . . . Both actors share an easy chemistry, no doubt honed through revisiting their characters from the earlier productions.” - Jeffrey Walker, DC Theatre Scene

“At the heart of the story are the young couple May and Raleigh Brummet, delightfully played by Lexi Langs and Wood Van Meter . . . it’s a splendidly talented cast . . . “ - Roger Catlin, BroadwayWorld DC

“ ‘Gulf View Drive’ is the final play of a trilogy by Arlene Hutton.  ‘Last Train to Nibroc’ introduced Raleigh and May, and their story was continued in ‘See Rock City’ . . . Luckily for us, the audience, you don’t need to see the previous plays to just fall into ‘Gulf View Drive’ completely . . . As May, Langs is tightly wound and panicked when she feels left out, but once her reasons are revealed and the depth of hurt bursts out, you feel for this strong woman.” – Mary Ann Johnson, MD Theatre Guide

Crimes of the Heart
Virginia Repertory Theatre

Crimes of the Heart_ Lexi Langs 4.jpg

“Long a showcase for talented actresses, this "Crimes" doesn't disappoint . . .Lexi Langs is delightfully kooky as Babe, especially amusing in her flirtatious scenes with Tyler Stevens, who portrays her character's lawyer.” Rich Griset, Style Weekly

“Lexi Langs, who last appeared in a VaRep performance in 2007, is
fascinating as the youngest sister, Babe or Rebecca. Physically enchanting
with her wide eyes and sometimes vacant stare, we first meet Babe when
she returns to Old Grandad’s home after being released from jail where she
spent the night after shooting her husband in the stomach. Langs gives
Babe a childlike quality that is unnerving; we are never quite sure if Babe
has a true mental illness or just an advanced case of “the vapors.” ” Julinda D. Lewis, RVArt Review

“ . . . this trio (Maggie Roop and relative RVA newcomers Irene Kuykendall
and Lexi Langs) are all delightful. Langs is a bundle of quirky energy . . .this
ensemble is all-around excellent . . .” Jerry Williams, TVJerry

“Lexi Langs, as Babe, rounds out the sister trio with delicious, unrelenting neurotic energy as a woman on the verge . . . we can only sit in wonder at “Crimes of the Heart’s” peculiar, bewitching allurement.  It’s like watching the rain come down while the sun is still shining.” – Tony Farrell, Richmond Times-Dispatch

See Rock City_ Lexi Langs (8).jpg

“ . . . in last year’s Washington Stage Guild production Wood Van Meter and Lexi Langs acted it with chemistry to burn . . . Van Meter and Langs are back and so happy as the bright-minded newlyweds . . . The show is carried by Langs and Van Meter, who somehow know the old-fashioned tune Hutton has written. They croon it fetchingly and also hit the dark blue notes, and the end of this unpretentious, bittersweet little drama is an honest surprise.” – Nelson Presley, The Washington Post

“The small cast churns out strong performances. Returning to play May and Raleigh are Lexi Langs and Wood Van Meter, who truly vibe as a couple. Their honey-glazed chemistry easily emanates from the stage.” – Emily Priborkin, DC Theatre Scene

“Lexi Langs and Wood Van Meter actually reprise their roles of May and Raleigh after playing the same parts in Last Train to Nibroc last season. This explains the comfort and easy chemistry they displayed on stage last night. It was like seeing a real couple – a real couple you see go through many ups and downs. A high point in the show for me was the scene where May comes home and tells Raleigh about the District Meeting. Langs and Van Meter showed great emotion and levels and really connected with each other.” – Allie Press, DC Metro Theater Arts

Last Train to Nibroc
Washington Stage Guild
Dir. Bill Largess 

“The mysteries grow all the more intriguing because the actors’ characterizations are so specific, robust and appealing. You can see the frustration and conflict buried beneath May’s veneer of demureness . . . Each strand of conversation is gripping, and each pause is an interesting, resonant pause . . . such absorbing performances.” – Celia Wren, The Washington Post

“Making a strong DC area debut, Lexi Langs has all the qualities of the girl next door as May. If her performance is any indication, Langs is going to be a key player in the DC theatre community in the coming months and years. Her performance is so natural that you almost forget it's a performance and not just someone having a conversation.”  – Elliot Lanes, BroadwayWorld DC

“Hutton’s clever, charming dialogue is brought to life brilliantly by Wood Van Meter as Raleigh and Lexi Langs as May . . . We watch Langs grow her character from the sanctimonious and naïve young woman we meet on the train into a maturing adult whose growing self-assuredness enables her to transcend the narrowness of her upbringing. Her misunderstanding of Raleigh’s illness, however pathetic, gives us a breathtaking look into her loving soul.”  – Amy Kotkin, DC Metro Theater Arts

“The two excellent actors do justice in defining the characters. Lexi Langs plays May with a solid dignity laced with touches of vulnerability . . . The actors have a comfortable rapport with each other and they both bring out the poetic cadence of the script which repeats phrases like a melodic refrain…” – Debbie Minter Jackson, DC Theatre Scene

Steel Magnolias
The Alhambra Theatre
Dir. Tod Booth 

“Lexi Langs takes on the role of Annelle, a quirky young woman with a jaded past. A nearly flawless performance, Langs pulls the audience in with strong physical reactions and hilarious timing.”   - BroadwayWorld, Heather Vollman

Venus in Fur
Cotuit Center for the Arts (Cape Cod)
Dir. Aisha Stewart

“Langs plays the layered Vanda to perfection. In her first Cape Cod show she’s electric and self-possessed when necessary, but also deliberate and thoughtful. It’s a delight to see her take command of a strong character — a feminist in a dog collar and lacy undergarments . . . Langs owns the stage, crushing the silence like a bug . . .” – Kay Keough, The Barnstable Patriot

“And when it comes to attitude, Langs has it in spades. Frank and assertive, she’s the master or mistress, as it were, of her domain even when scantily clad. Almost more cheeky than seductive, her Vanda is a vixen with quicksilver, silky smooth changes in demeanor, ranging from acquiescent to fierce. With her flame-red hair and dominatrix look, Langs is something of an eye magnet.” - Cindy Nickerson, Cape Cod Times

“For 75 minutes Thomas (Santino Torretti) and Vanda (Lexi Langs) mesmerize the audience . . . Mr. Torretti and Ms. Langs perform in their own bubble of intensity, and the effect is stunning . . .”

“Venus in Fur” won a Tony in 2012 for Broadway actress Nina Arianda, and Ms. Langs makes a compelling case for why the role qualifies for such recognition. She is superb in shifting moods from silly to serious, guileless to conniving, playful to murderous.”  - William J. Grace, The Enterprise

Blithe Spirit 5.jpg

“While the play’s comic relief is entrusted to Lexi Langs as the high-strung parlor maid, Edith.”  - Jennifer Logue, Ponte Vedra Recorder

Mad Cow Theatre
Dir. Aradhana Tiwari

“As Sylvia, Langs is the catalyst that unknowingly forces Billy to re-examine everything about the life he has known. After just one scene, it is clear to understand why Langs, and her character, would inspire such passion. Her charismatic vibrancy is infectious, which makes it even more painful when Sylvia eventually retreats into herself.” – Matt Tamanini, BroadwayWorld Orlando

“He and Lexi Langs make a riveting team as she beautifully translates his overdue eruption of feelings to his family.” – Matt Palm, Orlando Sentinel

Rapture, Blister, Burn
Zoetic Stage
Dir. Stuart Meltzer

“ . . . the cast is as close to flawless as an acting ensemble gets . . . As Avery, Langs conveys the cocky self-assurance of youth, the idea that these older women can’t possibly get how her generation’s relationships work, until that universal experience of heartbreak kicks her behind.” – Christine Dolen, Miami Herald

“As this is Zoetic Stage, the production is slick, the set terrific, the direction just right and the ensemble casting exemplary . . . Lexi Langs is Avery, 21 years old, ex baby sitter, foul mouthed and determined not to be owned by anyone.” – Roger Martin, BroadwayWorld Miami

Bad Jews
Dir. Joe Adler

“. . . his very blond, very sweet girlfriend Melody (Lexi Langs) a shiksa goddess if ever there was one . . . Langs is perfect as Melody, the outsider forced to witness this family’s dynamics.  Langs also has her own spotlight moment when she tries to cmofrt Daphna that is beyond funny.  Or sad.  Or both.” – Mary Damiano, BroadwayWorld Miami

“Meanwhile, observers including Liam’s girlfriend (beautifully played by Langs) desperately hope not to take sides in this conflict.” – Ron Levitt, SocialMiami

“Langs’ Melody is sweet, observant and, as it turns out, a determined referee . . .
And by yet another excellent GableStage production.” – Christine Dolen, Miami Herald

“Lexi Langs is the perfect target, Melody, a somewhat trained opera singer who wings an astounding “Summertime” across the theatre.” – Roger Martin, Miami Artzine

“Langs is perfect as the fish out of water, playing Melody as simple and clueless when she needs to be, but as perhaps brighter than everyone else when the time comes.” – John Thomason, Miami New Times

“As the play’s only non-Jew, Langs portrays a character in over her head, a pawn who refuses to be pulled down to their level.  She also delivers a quite funny rendition of Gershwin’s “Summertime” when Daphna goads her into singing.” – Hap Erstein, Palm Beach ArtsPaper

“Lexi Langs keeps Melody from being a lackluster object worthy of derision.  In fact, while far simpler than anyone around her, Langs exudes Melody’s simple decency and compassion faced with this toxic tornado.” – Bill Hirschmann, Florida Theater on Stage

The Edge of Our Bodies
Mosaic Theatre
Dir. Margaret Ledford 

 “. . .this mesmerizing performance from Lexi Langs who captivates the audience for the entire play with only the help of one other actor.  Lexi Langs jumps from reciting lines from The Maids back to scenes from her journal. Her acting as a 16-year-old girl is unforgettable.  Provocative, thought provoking theatre at its best.” – Richard Cameron, Theater Chat

“But Rapp, Langs and Ledford slowly, very slowly peel back her blithe exterior to reveal a troubled human being fighting swelling anxiety, sadness and anger . . . Langs is, indeed, a skilled actress . . .” – Bill Hirschmann, Florida Theater on Stage

The Member of the Wedding
River City Rep
Dir. Patric McWilliams  

“There are numerous reasons to get tickets for River City Repertory Theater’s new production, The Member of the Wedding.  The first is that on opening night the cast proved itself spectacular.  Reason two is Langs herself.  This is . . . a level of talent rarely seen hereabouts.  Director Patric McWilliams and Langs have fashioned a facial and body language that vividly conveys the emotional state of a lonely, passionate, and mercurial kid.” – Robert Trudeau

The Miracle Worker
Orlando Repertory Theatre
Dir. Chris Jorie

“ . . . the real surprise for me was the extraordinary performance by Lexi Langs as Helen Keller . . . . . . What’s so extraordinary about Langs’ performance is how diverse it is . . . But Langs is also remarkable in her approach to the role . . . Langs does an excellent job not only avoiding a contrived, one-dimensional approach to Helen, but also in leaving the audience with very mixed feelings about the character. We can see her loneliness and isolation, but we also feel frustrated when she keeps rebelling against Annie. It’s a neat balancing act, and Langs is captivating in the role.” – Michael W. Freeman, The Reporter
