"... he is reminiscent very much of a young Ray Bolger in every way" - Roman Gusso - Showbiz Radio


"The most touching moment of the show, however, belongs to the older Ruth and his heart-breaking, knot-your-insides reprise of “My Best Girl,” following the death of Mame’s husband." -  Jennifer Gusso - Showbiz Radio


"...he was a open book, showing everything he felt with just a small facial expression. His rich voice serenaded Cinderella in “Ten Minutes Ago,” blossoming a treasured love story"  - Ashley Pruitt (Cappies Critic)
