Praise for Significant Other:

 

"Kyle Cameron as Jordan gives a stellar performance that walks the line between preening, self-effacing but lovable nerd with the angst of someone living with [...] depression."


~ Broadway World SF

 

"Cameron’s charismatic performance is credible and true. ...When he delivers an angry, incisive rant to Laura [...] it’s a triumphant moment that comes from the character’s fully formed thoughts and emotions. In that stream of invective, he avoids falling into Jordan’s tendency towards self-pity. "


~ SF Weekly

Praise for Anna Karenina:

 

"Levin’s idealistic views on inter-class relations may not go very far, but Cameron plays him with a lot of heart — moving him from a stilted and clumsy suitor to perhaps-ideal husband and father. "


~ Onstage Colorado

 

Praise for The White Chip:

 

"Cameron is an endearing, engaging performer, ideally suited to a vehicle like this. With the rhythms of a stand-up comic he banters with the audience in extended monologue."


~ Broadway World Pittsburgh

 

"Cameron ... is relentlessly agreeable as Sean."


~ Pittsburgh City Paper

 

"Mr. Cameron ... never stands still in a fast-talking whirlwind of direct address and scenes from a life on the edge."


~ Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

 

Praise for Trouble Cometh:

 

"The funny — in both senses — disconnected awkwardness of
a terrific Kyle Cameron’s Joe gradually makes more sense, and he becomes more endearingly affecting."

 

"Cameron and Russell are riveting."


~ SF Gate

Praise for CRANKED:

 

"Kyle Cameron gives a knockout performance taking his character through a greater emotional arc in 45 minutes than you see in most full-length plays."


~ EYE Toronto

 

"Its star, Kyle Cameron, is wonderfully convincing as
a good kid with problems."

 

~ Variety

 

"Cameron creates family members, competitors and counsellors, morphing like a chameleon from one to another."

 

~ NOW Toronto

 

"Kyle Cameron is awesome here playing Stan, as is is throughout the whole 45-minute show.  He's not afraid to show us the disgusting physical side of his addiction ... His dementia is equally convincing, with some of his hallucinations proving so deeply felt that when we later find out they were false, we're as relieved as we are surprised."

 

~ Richard Ouzounian, Toronto Star

 

"Mr. Cameron is an ingratiating performer. Cranked is
a praiseworthy endeavor."

 

~ Lawrence Van Gelder, New York Times
