“Michael Gillett keeps the absurd appealing, and the comedy genuine” – Foster’s Showcase / “Michael Gillett gives a brave, understated performance as Flote.”– Portsmouth Herald / “Edward, the thoughtless, sexist lawyer, is played in all his sleaze by Michael Gillett – charming yet slick, reprehensible and unapologetic. …Gillett revels in the role; he is a pleasure to watch.” – York Weekly / “Mike Gillett does a memorable job as Bluntschli, a role that calls for self-assured and an even tempered portrayal. Gillett seems comfortable and real. But he also brings something intangible, an energy that commands attention and works well in defining his character’s postion.” – Foster’s Showcase / “And then there’s Michael Gillett, this production’s Proteus. It’s not easy to play a character with so few likable qualities. Gillett’s non-judgemental approach makes it work. His smile, sometimes charming, sometimes beguiling, sometimes sinister, speaks volumes. Gillett, in fact, enjoys his time investigating one so despicable. Plus, as an actor, he never pushes. Rather he allows himself just to follow the path the script clears.” – Portsmouth Herald / “Gillett is seemingly inexhaustible…As the clown for the piece, [he] succeeds hands down.” – Portsmouth Herald / “Direction by Michael Gillett assures things don’t Lag” – Fosters Daily Democrat / “Applause to director Michael Gillett for approaching this work fearlessly.” – Foster’s Showcase / “Overseeing this theatrical accomplishment was Director Michael Gillett, who made it all work. Both his blocking and staging are terrific.” –Foster’s Showcase / “Director Michael Gillett proved himself to be a story teller of high caliber” – Portsmouth Herald / “Michael Gillett’s direction was fast paced” – York Star / "well-written, well-rehearsed, well-executed comedy that plays to our intelligence and interests"- thebastion.org, Chicago / "Strong, lively performance"- Foster's Daily Democrat / "Michael Gillett weaves the piece well, keeps its pace up...and makes staging both interesting and natural" - Foster's Daily Democrat / "Director Gillett brings this tale to a high polish. There is nothing simple about his blocking. It's like a dance with many characters in perfect time." - Foster's Showcase / "Chances are you'll be laughing out loud..." - Foster's Showcase / "[Wendy Lannon] and Michael Gillett share some great moments as the vengeful, cowed Mr. Pugh and hatefully prudish Mrs. Pugh. Their short interactions are some of the play's funniest" - Exeter News-Letter / "Michael Gillett gives a strong performance as the creep Proteus" - Foster's Showcase / "Director Michael Gillett proved himself to be a storyteller of high caliber..." - Foster's Showcase / "Michael Gillett weaves the piece well, keeps its pace up...and makes staging both interesting and natural" - Foster's Daily Democrat / "Michael Gillett ...brings something intangible, an energy that commands attention..." - Exeter News-Letter
