CAMERON BREXLER
Booked: HASBRO
Role: Dad
Represented By: Minc Talent
Casting Director: John McCarthy Casting

Critics Picks March 10

Julia Arian in the role of Gwen Montgomery, 
Julia Arian knows how to be a teenager, exuding the decreasing affection of a young woman who has reached a maturity that emotionally distances her from her father.
—Julio Martinez

Yvonne Huff in the role of Neyla,
Closely Related Keys at Lounge Theatre

Yvonne Huff fully earns the audience’s attention and respect for being an interesting, unmannered actor. Above and beyond that, though she stepped in late in the rehearsal process as a replacement, she finds the right emotion for the moment and the natural motivation for her blocking. Looking ethnically ambiguous, here Huff convincingly plays the daughter of an Iraqi mother and African-American father.
—Dany Margolies

Jan Munroe as himself,
Alligator Tails at Theatre/Theater

This revisit to Jan Munroe’s 1984 solo show, offering endearing and often silly stories about six generations of his Southern cracker family, is still a knockout. Munroe pioneered this kind of brave, physically embellished performance style and once again weaves his charming tales with a delivery landing somewhere between Spalding Gray and Fredric March as Mark Twain. Still moving with incredible grace and striking poses evoking Cirque du Soleil, Munroe makes one wonder if there’s a steadily deteriorating portrait of him in some forgotten closet really going to hell.
—Travis Holder

Alina Phelan in the role of Diane,
Disassembly at Theatre of NOTE

In Steve Yockey’s outrageous farce about one of the world’s most deliciously bizarre families, Alina Phelan plays the troubled Diane somewhere between stoic Chekhov heroine and the physical embodiment of Edvard Munch’s “The Scream.” Despite the traps inherent in the material, Phelan’s performance is rooted in truth and buried deep in a palpable sense of reality.
—Travis Holder

Nick Stabile in the role of Bobby Horvath,
The Trip Back Down at Whitefire Theatre

Nick Stabile projects the proper brooding ambivalence of a former local celebrity who knows he will never rise to the heights of success he sought when he left town, yet has no other plan for the future.
—Julio Martinez

Amanda Troop in the role of Mary 2,
Passion Play, Evidence Room and Odyssey Theater

Over the course of three hours and 400 years, Sarah Ruhl's panorama play offers many meaty roles. But, Amanda Troop’s jolly, openhearted tollbooth collector in Act 3 is the single best piece of playing in this production under Bart DeLorenzo’s direction. Reminiscent of Frances McDormand’s Marge Gunderson in Fargo but with an extroverted bonhomie all her own, Troop presents an indelible portrait of Middle-American faith and fervor, utterly devoid of condescension.
—Bob Verini

AND FROM NEW YORK…

Bryan Cranston in the role of Lyndon B. Johnson,
All the Way at Neil Simon Theatre

Fresh from his multiple-Emmy-winning run on Breaking Bad, Bryan Cranston transforms himself into the arm-twisting, profanity-spouting chief executive. Thrusting his abdomen forward and twisting his features into an almost perpetual scowl, Cranston conveys Johnson’s relentless domination over allies and enemies alike. But he’s not all push and prod. The actor clearly relishes LBJ’s love of a good dirty story. Like a foul-mouthed Abe Lincoln, he dispenses outrageous, illustrative anecdotes with maximum effect, garnering audience guffaws and landing his point with precision. —David Sheward
