David Edwards: Giving Voice



"I have seen David Edwards do exceptional work at Ivoryton Playhouse before, both onstage (in La Cage aux Folles) and as a director (last season's splendid production of South Pacific), but nothing could really prepare me for what he accomplishes in this show, as he switches characters at a dizzying speed and is often so hysterical it's hard to stop laughing."
--Zander Opper, Talkin' Broadway


"David Edwards is commanding, and ultimately touching, as Father."
-- Neal Zoren, PrincetonInfo.com

"David Edwards is also a standout as the impressive and vibrant father of the well-to-do clan".
