â€œJeff Pierce is a commanding presence on stage and has an absolutely wonderful voice. His performance of
the famous Soliloquy builds to an emotional crescendo which left me breathless.â€�
â€œPierceâ€™s Curly is amazingly persuasive in the bunkhouse encounter with the surly farm hand, Jud.
Anyone who can inject an air of credibility to â€œPore Judâ€� is doing something very right. Pierce nails it.â€�
â€œJeff Pierce has got a marvelous sweet voice, the good looks, muscular build and aw-shucks character to fit
â€œJeff Pierce lifts the play to a new level with his simple and skilled performance. Pierce is able to bring a sense
of truth and depth to the stage that is often missing in musical theatre while also possessing an uncommonly
beautiful singing voice.â€�
â€œJeff Pierce â€¦displays typical Southern charm, warmth, and humor, drawing you into the character's story
from the very start. Pierce also plays the 17-odd other characters in the piece, often having conversations with
himself as all the different POWs in the camp and displaying an impressive range of dialects and accents. As a
Brit, I was impressed that his English (and Scottish) accents are spot-on. He also gives each character a unique
physicality, very hard to do when jumping between characters in the space of a line or two, but something he has
great success at. He has some tough transitions at times, playing a character reduced to tears through loss or
devastation and then switching back to the main character and continuing the story in Jackson Taylor's unhurried,
friendly manner. It is a great testament to his skill as an actor â€¦ that it was so easy for the audience to follow him.
