“Mr. Snake (Jacob Dresch), whose green coiffure (by Charles G. LaPointe) is in tune with his toxicity.”
— The New York Times
“Jacob Dresch’s “Snake” is an original comic invention.”
— DC Metro Theater Arts
“Jacob Dresch as Snake is perfectly smarmy and foppish and terribly funny.”
— Times Square Chronicles
“Not that it takes much to be impressed by the likes of Frances Barber and Jacob Dresch, who give two of the finest performances here.”
— Talkin' Broadway
“Dresch plays Costard, a simple man from the kingdom who serves as the catalyst for all things that go wrong. Dresch dropped Shakespeare’s longest word without a flinch... Best described as seemingly unhinged... Dresch owns his overly dramatic role.”
— Broadway World
“The secondary storylines feature highly effective clowning: As a hapless peasant, Jacob Dresch is a scene-stealer.”
— Orlando Sentinel
“As the foppish Andrew Aguecheek, Jacob Dresch is particularly funny with his physicality.”
— Orlando Sentinel
“Jacob Dresch may be the most interesting actor at PSF this year. He has a knack for approaching parts with a difference and finding multi-level line readings.”
— Neals Paper
“Jacob Dresch plays Sir Henry Baskerville... with an eagerness that would become a puppy dog, an endearing distractedness and an attentiveness that’s winsome.”
— Lehigh Valley Press
“Dresch makes Baker’s journey to his own self-awareness a delight. It is wonderful to watch his transformation from a sad sack with a poker face to a fully realized member of the human race full of emotions.”
— The Morning Call
“Dresch projects naive charm. He’s a miniaturist of emotions. His interactions with Button and Schulenburg evoke the warm and fuzzy. What began as a nonentity becomes someone you root for.”
— Lehigh Valley Press
