"This Random World" Review: The Sappy Critic

There’s Kelly Mengelkoch, who can do literally anything on stage, paired with Patrick Phillips, who is equally as versatile... Through some solid scene work, comic timing, and a great grasp of the material, this ensemble performs this ninety-minute one-act play with precision.

Review: Enchanting 'Bloomsday' like an emotion-packed poem

Becca Howell’s Caithleen is enchanting. Impulsive, charming and just erratic enough that little alarm bells go off for those of us who are no longer 20. Patrick E. Phillips’ Robbie is blind to it, though. With a quick smile and the brush of a hand, Caithleen has singlehandedly erased his misery. He is head over heels for her. Is it love? Infatuation? Momentary madness? No matter. These two actors make it lovely to watch.

Critic's Pick: "Cinderella: After Ever After"

The actors pour themselves into conveying the humor of their roles... Patrick E. Phillips, new as Prince Frederick, brings a gangly awkwardness to the role, eager to please but not quick to object to the interference of others.

Cincinnati Enquirer Review: "Luna Gale"

Israel and Phillips are remarkable as the young couple. Flailing back and forth between cocky and despairing, they are, underneath it all, nothing more than 19-year-olds trying to find their way through a world where logic and kindness are in short supply.

"Avenue Q" Review

Phillips truly becomes his puppet alter ego, incorporating tremendous enthusiasm and great physicality into his puppet.

"From White Plains" Review

Phillips has a vulnerability as an actor that allows him the freedom to play this character with realism yet never going over the top. It’s a restrained, brilliant performance.
