Kiss Me, Kate Review By Joel Benjamin at 54 below

“However, it was Carlos Lopez and Michael Dean Morgan as the two inept gangsters who stole the show with their “Brush Up Your Shakespeare.” This was probably the best interpretation I’ve ever heard. They were brash, funny and even a little sexy, their accents perfect. They even wore their hats as if they were born to this period. They literally stopped the show, having to perform all of Porter’s many hilarious encores.” 

Mary Poppins Review - Sarah Reed HERALD STAR BOSTON

“Michael Dean Morgan’s authoritative and complex George Banks is consistently compelling.”

Mary Poppins Review - Lynne Sullivan The Herald News Providence

 “Michael Dean Morgan, as George Banks, makes a remarkable transformation as he realizes that his family is what’s truly important. And you feel confident that the family will live happily ever after.”
