Nikki returns to the Olney’s Theatre Center in the role of Maretha in “The Piano Lesson”, the fourth play in August Wilson’s “Century Cycle.” The play follows the Charleses, an African-American family living in Pittsburgh in 1936, as they struggle over the sale of a precious family heirloom, literally and figuratively fighting the ghosts of their past.


“Last but not least, a special shout-out is in order for young Nicole Wildy, who plays Maretha. A young prodigy, Maretha is the only member of the family who still plays the piano, and the scene where Wildy gives a brief solo is a highlight of the evening.”
– Andrew White, Broadway
