The Columnist

Florida Studio Theater

Herald-Tribune "The heart of the play can be found in the tender performance of Robert Gomes as Stewart, the kind of brother anyone would want."

The Bradenton Times "... the measured contrast of Robert Gomes's affectionate turn as Alsop's endearing brother." "... played with his own gemlike flash of truth."


Body/Anti-Body "Gomes is great and really sells himself as a true obsessive compulsive, especially when his illness is tested. The actor also nails his character’s more humorous side, and his ability to make fun of himself." "Gomes sells his mania nicely early on ... He makes Kip's disease a realistic mix of insanity and desperation ..." "... with Gomes being a real standout as the petrified and very human Kip."



Zach Theater
