MY WAY: A Musical Tribute to Frank Sinatra (The Depot Theatre, NY) -

 

“Erik Keiser is an appealing song and dance man and does a specially nice job on a duet with Maggie Politi of 'Nice and Easy.'”

- Connie Meng, North Country Public Radio

 

           

“[Erik] Keiser (Man No. 2) is a true son-and-dance man, evoking the energy of a younger Sinatra. He brings his background in dance to the stage, making it his own. The whole ensemble brings life to these standards, but Keiser’s comedic timing adds another dimension to each song’s story.”

- Diane Chase, Adirondack Daily Enterprise

                                                                                                              

HOW TO SUCCEED... (Theatre by the Sea/Ocean State Theatre Company, RI) -

           

“Erik Keiser is well-cast as Finch. Keiser has a sparkle in his eyes from his first moments on stage and he approaches each of Finch’s plots and schemes with enthusiasm and charm.”

- Veronica Bruscini, BroadwayWorld.com

           

“At Theatre by the Sea the character [of Finch] is brought to life by the extremely likeable Erik Keiser. Keiser’s beautiful, smooth voice is a pleasure to listen to, and his effortless charm and winning smile make you root for him throughout the show.”

- Kim Kalunian, WPRO 630

           

“Erik Keiser as J. Pierrepont Finch is spectacular; he is a dynamo of theatrical energy with the looks and voice of a Broadway star. He moves with the grace of Gene Kelly and plays understated humor as nimbly as Bob Hope.”

- Dave Christner, Mercury Magazine

 

 

THE BARDY BUNCH (Theatre at St. Clement's & FringeNYC) -

           

“Erik Keiser as Keith Partridge was sheer perfection and the standout of the bunch. As he lusted after Marcia, Keiser was suave and commanded the stage. Like David Cassidy was the star of The Partridge Family, Erik Keiser was the star of The Bardy Bunch. Look out for what this kid does next.”

- Michael Block, Theater in the Now

           

“...standouts [included] Erik Keiser as as the crowd-adoring, all-roads-lead-to-a-song Keith Partridge for his command of the little Keith-like nuances....”

- Tony Wynne, A Life in Limbo

           

“The huge cast is entirely outstanding...Erik Keiser’s singing channels Keith [Partridge’s] voice perfectly and is terrific in its own right....”

SAIL AWAY (Musicals Tonight!, NYC) -

 

"...and Erik Keiser, as the even younger and more ardent Barnaby, give stellar performances."

- Mark Peikert, Backstage

 

"Erik Keiser is charming as the youthful and outgoing Barnaby...."

- Victor Gluck, TheatreScene.net

 

 

HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL (Little Theatre on the Square, IL) - 

 

"Erik Keiser not only nailed the role of Troy Bolton, he nailed Zac Efron, the actor from the trilogy. His mannerisms and Bolton-esque movements paid tribute to the original role, but not as an imitation, rather an incarnation."

- Shelbyville Daily Union

 

 

FOOTLOOSE (Nat'l Tour) -

 

"The show’s irresistible force is Ren-the-kid, played with virtuosity and plucky enthusiasm by Erik Keiser."

- Nevada Events

 

 

HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL (Broadway Palm) -

 
"As Troy and Gabriella, Erik Keiser and Katie Hagen certainly could pass for high-schoolers. But when they open their mouths to sing they sound like the professional New York actors they are - blending harmonies seamlessly, hitting notes cleanly, projecting powerfully.”
