Critic Reviews

Stephen Powell evoked sincere emotion [as] George Wilson. Powell really killing it — from his lanky physique, down to his incredible ability to make his body weak with emotion, Powell brought life to the troublesome love triangle that haunts Myrtle, George, and Tom throughout the plot.

[The Theater] Barn has [a] strong physical comic in Powell.
— Berkshire On Stage review of 'Don't Dress For Dinner'
Brilliant, quirky cast... [Powell] can time laughs, kill with comic reactions... [he pulls] this off superbly.
— Berkshire Bright Focus review of 'Don't Dress For Dinner'
...[Dionna Eshleman’s] scenes with the finely performed Captain Hastings (Stephen Powell in an excellent performance) were delightful.
— Berkshire Bright Focus review of 'Black Coffee'
The performances range... [to the] more colorful ... especially Stephen Powell’s delightful Hastings.
— The Berkshire Eagle review of 'Black Coffee'
...Proof that to be totally satisfying a comedy needs more than a funny premise. The production is very funny when showing what happens to the very shy Christopher when he inherits $10 million from a casual acquaintance... Highly energetic cast...

... Really talented young comic actors. ...[The director] has two extraordinary young comedians in Dunlow and Powell, both of whom have earned rave reviews here at Berkshire On Stage for Theater Barn appearances last summer.

Ben Brantley of the New York Times called it “an outlandish and magical tale of transformation.” On the summer stage of the Theater Barn in New Lebanon, New York it is just that once again.

Playing [Walter] is Stephen Powell, an actor who can hold his own against Dunlow’s excesses. Powell brings a rubber-boned grace to the role, his body and face changing shape and form constantly as he finds himself in charge of things, then lost in space, then instantly confused and confounded by what is happening around him. It is a very funny performance with moving moments thrown in for good measure.
