The Comedy of Errors

"Both pairs have excellent chemistry together.  Adding to the chaos, Murry and Vanderbeek carry a remote control that can stop and reverse time; they use that to excellent comic effect. Murry and Hooper both capture the frustration of the confused identities, with Hooper at the end frantically pacing at the center of the stage, while Murry frequently expresses his confusion as the cast spookily surrounds him."

          - Charles Green, DC Metro Theater Arts

 

The Game's Afoot

Matthew is a wonderful “sidekick”, ready to assist his friend no matter the outcome, yet still a commanding presence on stage. He was inspiring when quoting Shakespeare and hilarious when reacting to the situations around him. In fact, he stole some scenes with some of those reactions."

"...The cast made those scenes — like where Matthew Murry and Kingsbury are trying to hide a body — smooth and progress nicely."

          - Carrie Moore, Carrie on the Arts

 

Unneccesary Farce

"Murry did an amazing job with the physicality of the role — valiantly jumping on beds, tussling with phone cords, running in and out of doorways and dropping trou."

          - Carrie Moore, Carrie on the Arts

The Tempest

"Matthew Murry’s fine performance presents Prospero as intelligent, thoughtful and dramatically capable of a variety of emotions." 

          - George Walker, WFIU

"Matthew Murry proved his command of the stage in his depiction of Prospero." 

          - Jennifer Pacenza, Bravo, Bloomington!

 

"Matthew Murry’s Prospero, despite his supernatural abilities and undeniable wisdom, has a grounded quality."

          - Matthew Waterman, Herald Times

Romeo and Juliet

"With the blessing of the good Friar Lawrence, a solid Mathew Murry, the two are married."

          - George Walker, WFIU

The Exonerated

"Matthew Murry portrays Gary, a soft-spoken farmer who was convicted of murdering his parents. Murry’s performance brings out his character’s humility and gentleness. "

          - Matthew Waterman, Herald Times

 

M. Butterfly

"Matthew Murry held the stage nicely as Rene Gallimard’s duplicitously political boss in the Beijing Consulate, as an extra man in a variety of scenes and as the judge who demands the explanation of the mystery of Gallimard’s love affair with Song Liling."

          - George Walker, WFIU

 

Macbeth

"Matthew Murry plays Macbeth, sensitive to both the spiritual and earthly results of his ambition, yet steely in his resolve to attain the crown for himself and his lady."

          - Paula Smith Allen, Southeastern Oklahoma State University

The Drowsy Chaperone

"Matthew Murry [is a] genuine and neurotic Man in Chair..."

          - Aaron L Adair, Southeastern Oklahoma State University

 

Leading Ladies

"What’s most original about this scenario is how Ludwig interweaves his story with Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night. Matthew Murry’s uptight minister is a perfect vehicle for Shakespeare’s prudish Malvolio. "

          - Dell McLain, Southeastern Oklahoma State University
