**** Recommended **** Breaking News – this just in – I’ve always wanted to write that, and it fits into this review – soccer has come to the Goodman Theatre! There’s now a soccer pitch, complete with astroturf, stadium seating and safety netting, inside the Owen Theatre (Goodman’s smaller space). If that’s not enough of a shock to the theater-going psyche, “The Wolves” might be! “The Wolves” is an exciting, intriguing drama about nine teenaged girls who play soccer on a traveling team, the Wolves. 4 BIG Spotlights
