Reviews

"Neely is an exceptionally talented actor as well... [he] truly transforms Austen’s leading male character from a headstrong unreachable man into this incredibly deep heartfelt human being that every girl, be she modern or Regency era, wants to love. A breathtaking shift in character leaves Neely with the reception of thunderous applause from the audience."--Amanda Gunther, DC Metro Theater Arts

"It is a testament to Neely’s charisma and talent that he holds his own in his scenes with McWethy. While barely moving a muscle, he was able to convey his attraction, his interest, his discomfort, and his joy, all through his eyes and the force of his personality." --Amy Berlin, ShowBiz Radio

"Neely is equally adept at revealing the many facets of the enigmatic Darcy...Through expressive eyes, Neely conveys his glowing fascination with Elizabeth, and in joyous words he finally gives voice to his rapturous love." --Mary Johnson, Baltimore Sun

“…stellar performances from McWethy, Neely, and Owen”

-Bay Weekly

"Neely as the young Claudio is a sensational performer." -DC Metro Theater Arts

"Neely has a way of lighting the fires of passion with a mere gaze" -Bay Weekly

Strong performances root the sweetness and style in reality…. [Ryan Michael] Neely as Claudio is at his best when the character is brooding, although he plays the wistful romantic with equal zest.” –MD Theatre Guide

"As Claudio, [Ryan Michael] Neely, who recently captivated Annapolis audiences as Mr. Darcy in "Pride and Prejudice," again delivers a solid portrayal" -Baltimore Sun

“[Demetrius and Lysander] played deftly by Ryan Neely and Adam Maggio, the duo draw heavily from the Marlon Brando School of puppy dog pouting and macho bluster" -Carlo Davis, Hudson Reporter
