"When Bailey gets a moment in the spotlight, you want to hear more."

press from "Fully Committed" :

Attention must be paid in particular to Matt Bailey... for his virtuoso performance in the one-man, one-act, many voices comedy, Fully Committed... Theatre is driven by individual talent, of course, and you walk out of Theatre Aspen on a summer's night thinking: "Not only is Matt Bailey a great singer, but he's funny. That kind of talent and these kind of shows don't happen by accident.” 

- The Huffington Post 



“It’s hard not to be blown away by Matt Bailey’s performance ... Bailey is the lone actor, playing some 40 characters... Fully Committed” is a rapid-fire virtuoso piece, as Sam... Every voice, every beat, every joke, every nuance is entirely on Bailey’s back... Almost to my disbelief, I was absorbed mostly not by the pace, not by Bailey’s acrobatics but simply wanting to know what was going to happen next. That’s the essence of good storytelling....Fully Committed is an absolute high point of Theatre Aspen’s recent history.”

press from "Jersey Boys"

Matt Bailey is wonderful... He commands the stage with such charisma - his stage presence is unmatched.”

- Broadway World


"...the real star of the show is guitarist Tommy DeVito 

(played marvelously by Matt Bailey)”

- The Miami New Times


“Bailey is perfect as the good-looking but vile DeVito.”

- Atlanta Journal Constitution


Bailey as Tommy has great charisma and a strong stage presence; I had a hard time taking my eyes off of him when he was onstage... When Tommy left the band in the 2nd act and Matt left the stage, I felt his absence and anxiously awaited his return.

- Cherry & Spoon


“Bailey nails the role of hot-headed DeVito.” - The Boston Globe


Bailey convincingly captured the essence of founding Four Seasons member Tommy DeVito as his brawny, rebellious spirit 

dominated the stage.

- Detroit Splash


(Matt Bailey) seems so Italian I’m not sure if he’s Italo-American (I’d buy that) or just a fine performer. (I’d buy that too)."

- Theatremania.com

 

Bailey’s Tommy DeVito is the most magnetic character. Bailey owned his role as the sharp-tongued DeVito.

- The Post Crescent


DeVito ...a role that Matt bailey tackles with terrific swagger and great timing.

- The Baltimore Sun


“Matt Bailey dominates the stage from the beginning as Tommy DeVito...he draws all eyes when he’s on stage.”

- The Detroit News 


Bailey’s timing is so good the second act sags without him, 

if only by comparison.

- Minneapolis Citypages
