"The 20-strong ensemble (the largest cast ever assembled by the Barrington Stage Company) shares an attitude and a rhythm..."

-Ben Brantley, The New York Times

"Dogberry (John Cariani) and his helpers Watchman (Ben Cole) and George Seacoal (Michael Kushner) excel with slapstick—what an understatement."

- Fred Sokol, Talkin' Broadway


"Dogberry (John Cariani) and his band — David Ryan Smith, Ben Cole and Michael Kushner — have an infectious low-comedy spirit that seems to free the rest of the ensemble, and the assurance of their reappearance lends a buoyancy of tone even while dramatic moments are unfolding."

- Steve Barnes, Times Union

"Kushner is beyond delightful as Charles, nailing with gusto some of the play's funniest lines."

- John Thomason, Miami New Times

"Kushner creates the only somewhat sane and adjusted character in the play."

- Bill Hirschman, Florida Theatre On Stage

"...delivered some of the night’s most memorable punch lines with the flair and panache of a natural comedian."

- Madelyn Paquette, The Miami Hurricane
