Reviews

FOR "DIRTY ROTTEN SCOUNDRELS"

"As Lawrence, David Almeida is the definition of debonair with a David Niven accent and a lovely singing voice."

        - Matt Palm, The Orlando Sentinel


FOR "7 DAYS"

"The greatest acting challenge falls to David Almeida, who meets it gracefully... In turn silly, serious, forlorn and giddy, Almeida shows us all the heightened emotions of life on the edge."

        - Matt Palm, The Orlando Sentinel


FOR "A CHRISTMAS CAROL"

"David Almeida brings some needed warmth to the production as Scrooge’s nephew Fred."

        - Elizabeth Maupin, Orlando Theatre


FOR "HERE BE DRAGONS"

"Daniel has the upper hand in the discussion, largely thanks to Almeida's virtuoso performance -- his mix of sharp intellect and outsized outrageousness quickly wins the audience over."

        - Seth Kubersky, Orlando Weekly


"Almeida, a gifted comedian, ... delivers a performance that is at once hilarious and genuine."

        - Matty MacDermid, TalkinBroadway.com


FOR "SHE LOVES ME"

"Of the excellent supporting cast, there are many noteworthy performances - particularly ... David Almeida's perfectly hammy Head Waiter in the cafe scene."

        - Matty MacDermid, TalkinBroadway.com


"A way to celebrate the holiday: See the lovely Mad Cow Theatre musical She Loves Me -- it has a Christmas song (as well as a show-stopping number by David Almeida)."

        - Commander Coconut, The Orlando Sentinel


FOR "HATE MAIL"

"The broad comedy of the script calls for at least some physicality, and [director Jay] Hopkins is more than willing to err on the side of laughter. This suits David Almeida just fine in his role as Preston. A dinner-theater mainstay, Almeida handles the many phases of Preston's midlife crisis with zeal and the occasional touch of slapstick."

        - Tod Caviness, The Orlando Sentinel


"Director Jay Hopkins' challenge is to build an emotional connection between actors who never directly interact, or even make eye contact. That isolation along with the characters' general unpleasantness, can wear on an audience. Luckily Almeida and [Trenell] Mooring have the chops to keep things rolling, even when the script veers into darker territory..."

        - Seth Kubersky, Orlando Weekly


FOR "SWEENEY TODD"

"David Almeida is a full-on slapstick riot as Pirelli."

        - Pam Harbaugh, Florida Today


"David Almeida makes a priceless Pirelli."

        - Elizabeth Maupin, The Orlando Sentinel


FOR "THE CONSTANT WIFE"

"Jennifer Christa Palmer brings intelligence and grace to Constance's businesswoman friend, and David Almeida finds the same qualities, behind an opaque mask, in the butler."

        - Elizabeth Maupin, The Orlando Sentinel


FOR "ORLANDO VIGILANTE"

"David Almeida plays George's wife Mary -- and plays her as such a lovely, sensible woman that you forget she's a man in drag."

        - Elizabeth Maupin, The Orlando Sentinel
