- Helen Shaw, Time Out New York January 17 2019

- Dan Dinero, Theatre is Easy January 29, 2019

SOMETIMES THE RAIN, SOMETIMES THE SEA by Julia Izumi opens at Brown University. /April, 2018/
"In portraying Dolan (and Hans Christen Andersen), Brendan George ‘18 successfully vivifies the author’s complex personality, loneliness, and overwhelming desire to be loved and seen."
- Paige Torres, The Blognonian April 16, 2018
PIPPIN opens at Brown University. /November, 2017/
"The most dynamic character in the ensemble was the flirtatious, scantily clad “Leading Player,” played by Brendan George ’18, who served as the musical’s spiritual coxswain... and George’s performance merits acclaim usually reserved for Broadway professionals.”
- Annabelle Woodward, The Brown Daily Herald November 26, 2017

TALLGRASS GOTHIC, by Melanie Marnich, opens at Brown University. /March, 2016/
"...and the slimy, independent Filene (Brendan George ’18) all serve to push the progress of the affair in their willed direction. It’s clear these surrounding characters were scrupulously developed during the production process, and no two share the same deceit or tactics of manipulation."
"Tallgrass Gothic exploits both the body and mind, and touches on sexual freedom as much as it does emotional complacency, affecting the audience viscerally but never cheaply."
- Samuel Fredericks, The Blognonian March, 2016
SPRING AWAKENING opens at Brown University. /February, 2015/
"Among the teenage ensemble, the romantic entanglement between two male characters — a collision of Brendan George’s ’18 smarmy swagger and the Bambi-esque Jonathan West ’16 — is comically entertaining."
- Andrew Deck, The Brown Daily Herald February, 2015
