Best Leading Actor in a Play (David R. Jarrott)
“[David] Jarrott has fully captured the essence of this internally and externally crucified character... and brings the audience into the shadowy confines of the victim’s mind."
- Brian Paul Scipione, CTX Live Theatre
"Jarrott Productions presentation at Trinity Street Theatre is smart and professionally slick. THE FATHER is nearly perfect in its technical aspects."
- Lynn Beaver, Broadway World Austin
"Director Roemer and the cast create an engrossing, complex story unfolded, almost literally, in compelling rhythm."
- Michael Meigs, CTX Live Theatre
