MAN OF LA MANCHA
Michael Bertolini's voice draws us into his Don Quixote's idealistic world of La Mancha. His
rendition of "The Impossible Dream" is truly inspiring. Everytime he opens his mouth to sing
it is magical and heartwarming. - Smithtownpatch.com
Michael Bertolini literally became both Cervantes and the bedeviled knight in a masterful
performance - the essence of the dramatic arts. His firm ranging baritone pealed out the show's signature song,"The Impossible Dream", with reserved verve and understated musical delivery
with perfect pacing and emotional timbre. - Times Beacon
As George, Michael Bertolini gives a pitch-perfect, understated performance. He portrays the character's weariness, closet intellectualism, and moral confusion so well that we never
question the truth of his story. - nytheatre.com
PIRATES OF PENZANCE
Michael Bertolini as the Pirate King was a dashing, romantic figure. He displayed a terrific
voice and infectious relish and appeared to be having the time of his life. -Backstage
A first rate production that ranks as one of the best all-around shows I have seen in years.
Michael Bertolini is a commanding presence as Officer Lockstock. - Newsday
DIRTY ROTTEN SCOUNDRELS
Michael Bertolini is simply fantastic as the star of the show! It was a joy to watch his
Broadway-calibre performance, at times subtle and nuanced and at others show-stopping.
I've seen Mr. Bertolini perform three times at this theater, once as Don Quixote/Cervantes
in "Man of La Mancha", the Proprietor in "Assassins", and now Lawrence Jameson in
"Dirty Rotten Scoundrels", and I have observed him perform miracles in roles as diverse as
those. I am convinced he could play a mute zombie (a role that there seems to be an inordinate
amount of work for lately) and still win a Tony! - Stephen Treglia (Blogger)
"On behalf of all of here at LIFE ON MARS, we would like to take this opportunity to thank you for being a part of our first episode. You made COLIN RAIMES the disturbed psychopath we envisioned when we wrote him. We couldn't be happier with your performance, especially your chilling delivery during the interrogation scene."
