- “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

-“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.”
