Nancy Auffarth, Jeff Horst, Robert Wilde, Tiffan Borelli, Richard Rice Alan


"As the older couple struggling to keep their marriage together
Nancy Auffarth and Richard Rice Alan have the unenviable task
of conveying pain and disillusion
while searching for reason to keep going.
In a real tour de force performance,
these remarkable actors make two people who could be highly dislikable
empathetic and riveting."
"One of the evening's highlights was Alan's delivery of 'Sorry-Grateful' from Company"
Diane Jackson Schnoor - MILLBROOK INDEPENDENT

" PERFECT HARMONY "

FUNNY GIRL
REVIEWS


as Nick Arnstein Photo by POOK

...As Fanny's husband Nick Arnstein, Richard Rice Alan also achieves a kind of perfection...The guy is actually suave. Or he can act suave. Even debonair. And he can do it with a straight face. That's no mean feat in this age of T-shirts and backwards baseball caps. And Alan, too, can navigate the curves his part demands. When he appears on stage after doing an 18-month prison sentence for fraud, Alan's Arnstein looks convincingly diminished, his swagger stilled, his features drained. It was uncanny to see. (c) 2003 Tom Wrona

...as Nick Arnstein, deliver outstanding performances... Alan...delivers a very fine performance as the classy, but shady, Arnstein. Scott Cronick, The Press of Atlantic City

It's not until halfway through the first act that we get a glimpse of the huge talent Alan brings to the stage. Bre Golden, The Islander


DRACULA
REVIEWS


Photo by Pook

... successfully walks the tightrope and gives us exactly the Dracula the role calls for. He is formal and reserved without being stiff and he affects a Transylvanian accent without sounding like he's doing a bad Bela Lugosi impression. Alan is deadly serious in his portrayal of the celebrated hemophage and just as important, his castmates play it straight too. That's a big part of why the play works. (c) 2003 Tom Wrona

...Tall and foreboding, Alan is a perfect fit as the man to make mortals eternally undead... One look at Alan on stage and it's clear to see why the legend of Vlad the Impaler has endured...His portrayal is in his movements and, more importantly, his eyes. Bre Golden, The Islander

...gives a commanding performance. He's dashing, debonair and deliciously devilish (indeed, there aren't enough words beginning with the letter D to describe his debut). Todd Hill, Staten Island Advance

As Doc Photo by R. Fisher

...one of those willing suspensions of disbelief was called for in order to recognize Richard Rice Alan in the role of the stoop-shouldered, shuffling, potbellied and balding Doc. Marjorie Amon Stone, The Beachcomber

Emile de Becque Photo by R. Fisher

As de Becque , Alan is the standout of the show. With a strong, rich voice, Alan easily handles "Some Enchanted Evening,".... His confident, understated performance anchors the show. Steven V. Cronin, The Press of Atlantic City

...plays the part of the suave, seductive French plantation owner to perfection, also uses his rendering of "Some Enchanted Evening" to prove a point. From start to finish proves to the audience that the sentimental, romantic solo is his. Marjorie Amon Stone, The Beachcomber
