“As Jack’s father, Sir Anthony, Brad Baron was imperious, yet warm.”

[testimonials backgroundcolor=”” textcolor=””] [testimonial name=”Midbergen Communities” gender=”male” company=”Theater Reviews: Man of La Mancha” link=”http://www.midbergen.com/index.php?module=News&func=display&sid=146″ target=”_blank”]”Just as Man of La Mancha is a difficult play to pigeonhole, it is also a very difficult play to perform. The actor portraying Cervantes/Don Quixote/Alonso Quiana needs a baritone/bass voice that can fill a theater, yet can alternate from a middle aged poet to a madman who think’s he’s a knight to a pathetic old man. This puts a huge burden on the actor playing the role. The young Brad Baron pulls it off admirably, handling the Cervantes and the elderly Quixote/Quiana characters with impressive skill (along with an excellent operatic baritone). His performance of “The Quest (The Impossible Dream)”, a song that has become a standard and done to death, is well nuanced, and performed to fit the scene, making it seem fresh once again. His acting skills are especially evident in his encounter with the Knight of Mirrors…Of the other parts, the performance that stands out is Brian James Grace’s performance of the Padre…The outer trial is about faith vs. reason, with the Padre being the voice of faith. Grace’s excellent acting and wonderful voice earned him, short of Brad Baron’s standing ovation, the strongest applause at the curtain calls…”[/testimonial][/testimonials]

Their voices were strong and projected well.”[/testimonial][/testimonials] [/one_third] [one_third last=”no”] [testimonials backgroundcolor=”” textcolor=””] [testimonial name=”Donald Rosenberg, Cleveland.com” gender=”male” company=”Ohio Light Opera opens 34th season with two company premieres” link=”http://www.cleveland.com/musicdance/index.ssf/2012/06/ohio_light_opera_review.html” target=”_blank”]”[Adelaide’s] fiancé of 14 years is Nathan Detroit, the most endearing of Manhattan con men. The lanky Brad Baron plays him with a thick New York accent and perpetual look of exasperation that suits the guy beautifully.”[/testimonial][/testimonials] [/one_third] [one_third last=”yes”] [testimonials backgroundcolor=”” textcolor=””] [testimonial name=”The Daily Record” gender=”male” company=”Ohio Light Opera hits jackpot with ‘Guys and Dolls” link=”http://www.ohio.com/upublish/general-news/ohio-light-opera-hits-the-jackpot-with-guys-and-dolls-1.315077″ target=”_blank”]”Joining Brian and Knox are newcomers Brad Baron and Alexa Devlin, who make spectacular debuts as Detroit and Adelaide, respectively. Baron, who hails from New Jersey has no problem with the classic New York accent. In fact, he sounds a bit like Ray Romano and displays many of the famous actor’s same innate comedic traits onstage — and the guy can sing, too. He’s a complete package, and fun to watch.”[/testimonial][/testimonials] [/one_third] [one_third last=”no”] [testimonials backgroundcolor=”” textcolor=””] [testimonial name=”ClevelandClassical.com” gender=”male” company=”Ohio Light Opera opens 34th season with Frank Loesser’s Guys and Dolls” link=”http://www.clevelandclassical.com/062012ologuysdollsrev” target=”_blank”]”Brad Baron was the quintessential Nathan Detroit: a pasty, shady Broadway character with a good heart and a multitude of creative excuses. Although his songs can be spoken rather than sung, Baron had the vocal goods and let them show.”[/testimonial][/testimonials] [/one_third] [one_third last=”no”] [testimonials backgroundcolor=”” textcolor=””] [testimonial name=”John Quinn, EncoreMichigan.com” gender=”male” company=”Ringwald’s Gay Play Series fills the bill with talent” link=”http://www.encoremichigan.com/article.html?article=6235″ target=”_blank”]”‘Homochondria’ by Brad Baron and directed by Michelle Leroy is an over-the-top burlesque concerning the cursed [Xander, Casey Hibbert], his long-suffering partner, [Ross, Joe Plambeck], and a Ghost of Divas Past and Present (Heidi Bennett).

An introduction to the funniest character in the play, Artie’s mistress Bunny — Olivia Stoker — follows. Baron and Stoker make a fantastic on-stage pair. Baron plays the part of an ambitious songwriter stuck in New York City. His life seems relatively ordinary until the audience is introduced to the characters around him. Stoker does a phenomenal job acting as his flamboyant neighbor-cum-mistress who dreams of Hollywood and provides effective comic relief with her clever dialogue. …the end manages to reel it all in with an poignant last scene between Artie and Bananas. Baron and [Lily Akerman] powerfully portray the frustration and suffering of their lives and leave the audience on a thought-provoking note. ‘The House of Blue Leaves’ is great entertainment with clever humor, fantastic sets and exceptional acting.”[/testimonial][/testimonials]

He is a buffoon at times, but he is also a loyal lover, and an able negotiator. His pantomime, in this scene with Phoebe, of the impending death of Col. Fairfax brings much laughter, and he continues to amuse throughout the show.”[/testimonial][/testimonials] [/one_half] [separator top=”30″ style=”double”]
