WORLD PREMIERE OF CONVICTION

Bay Street Theater, Sag Harbor, NY

"Daniel Burns is painfully believable as Nicholas, Tom and Leigh’s tortured, awkward son." - Aileen Jacobson, The New York Times

WEST COAST PREMIERE OF CONVICTION

Rubicon Theatre Company, Ventura, CA

"Once happy-go-lucky teenage son Nick (Daniel Burns)... tumble[s] into sullen emo rebellion; his furious outbursts ring true without recourse to precocious wisdom..."

- Philip Brandes, The Los Angeles Times

 

"It’s easy to see why director Scott Schwartz brought the gifted young New York-based [Daniel Burns] from Conviction’s Sag Harbor debut. His performance is so raw and riveting, you will not soon forget it." 

- Steven Stanley, StageSceneLA

AN EMPTY PLATE...

Riverside Theatre, Vero Beach, FL

"Representing youth — and ultimately hope — is the restaurant’s brand new waiter, the stuttering Antoine. Daniel Burns rises above the symbolism of his character and makes his awkward optimism all the more lovable." - Paige Van Antwerp, TCPalm

 

"Daniel Burns charms as Antoine, the waiter in training, especially when playing “Lady in Spain” on a tuba." - Pam Harbaugh, Brevard Culture

THE UNEXPECTED GUEST

Cortland Repertory Theatre, Cortland, NY

"Daniel Burns, as mentally challenged half-brother Jan Warwick...gives the most unsettling and plausible testimony. [Jan], who flails his arms around, sometimes with pistol in hand, is seemingly unable to distinguish between the imagined and the real."

-James MacKillop, Syracuse New Times

 

AYN RAND'S ANTHEM

Dorothy Streslin Theatre at Abingdon, New York, NY

"There is so much to appreciate in the show’s brief 70-minute running time. The performances are all-around solid and there’s a true sense of the ensemble from start to finish. Daniel Burns...provide[s] pointed, unswerving work."

-Brett Epstein, Theatre Is Easy

FUDDY MEERS

Storch Theatre at Syracuse University, Syracuse, NY

"But another performance rivaled...to steal the show....Daniel Burns played Richard Fiffle, Claire’s loving yet off-kilter husband, with extraordinary timing and sensitivity to character development. Fiffle entranced the audience with his distinct southern drawl and undeniable sincerity. And it was Burns’ genuine vulnerability that enabled his character’s comedic triumph. Because the audience never knew what Richard would say next, Burns made the first car scene between Richard and his son Kenny the most hilarious and engaging scene of the show." -Erin Scialabba, The Daily Orange
