- “Wickedly entertaining. . . ingenious” -Anna Minard, The Stranger
- “Recalling the great Shakespeare director Peter Brook. . . unmistakably alive.” -Misha Berson, The Seattle Times
- Seattle Magazine – “Perfect Summer Night in Seattle . . Pier Pleasure”
- “A stellar intellectual play performed with quick wit, near-perfect timing, and smooth physicality. . . Within the first ten minutes of the play I was not only transfixed, but also incredibly impressed. . . Spectacular” -Rachel Gallaher, City Arts Magazine
- Brillaint write up by Brendan Kiley at the Stranger.
- “Inspired. . . [a] keen understanding of the existential dilemma and absurdest humor of the play’s hapless pair, framed by an Elliott Bay setting that is spectacular” -Misha Berson, The Seattle Times

- Playbill.com: All-Male Production of Cabaret, Reset in Modern-Day Russia, Will Play Seattle
-“It’s a delightful pair of comedic actors working brilliantly together.”
-“(Don Armado) has brilliant chemistry with Mickey Rowe as his manservant sidekick, Moth, who’s more than a bit smitten with his master. The homoerotic elements of this production are more than just a bit of wishful thinking…there’s cheeky and very physical interplay between many of the male characters in this play and none more obvious than between the Don and his Moth.”
-“Rowe is adorably pratfally in the role of Moth”.
-“A scene stealer is Micky Rowe as the small but agile Moth.”
Here is a great radio interview with the director talking about some of the Noel Coward songs I sing in the show, Moth’s likeness to Sancho Panza, and a surprise shout out from the interviewer talking about my last show, La Boheme. http://www.king.org/pages/15808858.php
La Boheme review:
“But, on the whole, this production is rock-solid and pretty enough to entertain a deaf man. The second act takes place in a bustling cafe and street scene with scampering children, a stilt walker, and all the hustle of a Disney cartoon feast.”
I wanted to take a moment to invite you to my next four shows (my Season through March). With four incredible shows you should see. First is The Cat in the Hat at Seattle Children’s Theater directed by R. Hamilton Wright which runs Sep. 27 – October. 28. Next is John Irving’s hilarious and heartfelt A Prayer for Owen Meany at Book-It Repertory Theater which runs Dec 4 – 23. And then: I will be reprising my role in La Boheme at Seattle Opera February – March 10 followed by Love’s Labor’s Lost at Seattle Shakespeare Company March 13 – April 7th.
