REVIEWS



WHY MARRY?
THEATRE NEO
"The ensemble is pitch perfect -- especially David St. James in a splendidly wry performance as a judge capable of sussing out the distinction between what must be and what can be." L.A. WEEKLY


THE ILLUSION
EL PORTAL THEATRE
"...as Matamore, David St. James is the definitive blowhard with a scaredy-cat soul..." VARIETY


BEAT FOR SPARROWS
IVY SUBSTATION
"The play's comedic impulses ... are met with brilliant performances. David St. James plays a hilarious version of God: prude, callous, yet nevertheless hip." BACK STAGE WEST


BEAT FOR SPARROWS
IVY SUBSTATION

"... makes you remember why you loved going to live theatre. David St. James plays the Big Guy in the sky Himself (perched three stories up in the playhouse). St James is at once stern and absolute while humorously grunting beneath the responsibility of keeping the whole universe going." EASY READER


BEAT FOR SPARROWS
IVY SUBSTATION
"... captures the essence of tortured soul and once-great bassist Charlie Leeds' chemically induced conversations with God (the hilarious David St. James)." LA WEEKLY


BEAT FOR SPARROWS
IVY SUBSTATION
"[Producer Alphonse] Ruggiero said he expected some to be uneasy with the play's approach to God (portrayed here by scene-stealing veteran actor St. James), but said that in a way, that is precisely the point." E-SCENE


TWO MEN CRAMMED IN A ONE-MAN SHOW
HUDSON THEATRE

"Highly entertaining ... plenty of laughs ... the cynical ramblings of St. James' terminally bored palace guard elicited repetitive bursts of laughter from the audience. The sweepstakes highlight of the evening, though, is St. James' Frenchman, who refers to his accordion as "the organ of love" and eventually gets several members of the audience on various percussion instruments backing him up." LA WEEKLY


HOWARD HUGHES IN HELL
THEATRE 40
"As the hypochondriac Hughes, St. James is disgustingly funny -- red-faced and dementedly intelligent, attired in a diaper and Kleenex-box shoes." LOS ANGELES TIMES


THE ST. JAMES SHOW
WESTWOOD PLAYHOUSE STUDIO
"Far more entertaining is The David St. James Show, previously seen at Don't Tell Mama and The Duplex in New York. St. James, whose forte is comedy sketches built around male sturm und drang, covers a wide variety of character images ... Conceived, written and directed by himself, David St. James knows how to hone his talent to best advantage." DRAMA-LOGUE


THE ST. JAMES SHOW
WESTWOOD PLAYHOUSE STUDIO
"St. James has the requisite farcical, physical, facial, and vocal virtues to carry off his charactersí inner turmoils." WEEKLY VALLEY VANTAGE


THE ST. JAMES SHOW
WESTWOOD PLAYHOUSE STUDIO
"David St. James opens the proceedings with a sparkling series of one-man sketches ... most magical of all is an opinionated and cranky cat waiting for the "big slave" to get home and feed him." LOS ANGELES READER
