The Importance of Being Earnest

[Ozark Actors Theatre]

"The cast is superb. Both Michael Dewar (Jack Worthing) and Blane Pressler (Algernon Moncrieff) give impressive performances as the two arrogant English dandies. [...] The dialogue simply sparkles as these two talented actors exchange Wilde's memorable banter."

— THE ROLLA DAILY NEWS

"Michael Dewar is appealing as the well-intentioned Jack, whose unfortunate past is turned into a delightful future in Wilde’s amusing script. He is particularly endearing in a funny scene where Lady Bracknell (Donna Weinsting) grills him like a fearsome, unblinking boss screening a potential job applicant."

Into the Woods

[Webster Conservatory]

"The students of the Webster Conservatory are highly talented young people, trained to perfection. And to see this troupe of nineteen leap into Into the Woods is exhilarating. The cast, without exception, is excellent. [...] Michael Dewar and Charlie Ingram are an absolute delight as the two Princes."

Sense and Sensibility

[Lost Nation Theatre]

"In a neat piece of staging, Marianne (Katelyn Manfre) is literally swept off her feet by the dashing and vain John Willoughby, portrayed here by Michael Dewar (making insincerity incredibly alluring)."

"Everyone else in the cast filled multiple roles in this production, and did so with a commitment rarely seen in regional theater. It is fascinating just to watch each actor transform time and time again; at one point, the cast goes on an impressive carriage ride playing passengers, horses, and even the carriage itself. It is well worth the price of admission just to see the level of teamwork they have accomplished and their total and complete devotion to making each moment alive and real."

Meet Me in St. Louis

[Ozark Actors Theatre]

"During the opening scene, we learn that Esther is lovestruck and has a crush on the handsome boy next door, John Truitt (Michael Dewar). [...] and in the end, he succeeds in charming both Esther and the audience."

Hot Mikado

[Hope Summer Repertory Theatre]

"All of the plot absurdities are swept away in one fantastic ensemble dance number after another. The Gentlemen of Japan juggle their hats up and down their arms and more than once they all 'rubber legs' in unison. But the most breathtaking dancing comes from the ensemble jitterbug and lindy hop: tossing partners over shoulders and landing on the floor in splits. Excellent fun. Who needs Dancing with the Stars?"
