MALCOLM - Aric Floyd
Daniel Sovich (Evan), Sam Welch (Eddie, Brett), Mark Oet (Malcolm, Richie, Simon), Aric Floyd (Archie)
"one of the standout moments in this production is when Malcolm (Aric Floyd) and Eddie (Daniel Sovich) indulge in a bit of soulful backup singing and dancing as their main guy Brett tries to cozy up to Kendra.
and Sovich's moves are loose, limber and downright hilarious.
"The notable doo-wop number "Bad Bad News" performed by ensemble members Daniel Sovich, Aric Floyd, Sam Welch and Kyle Cohen was a fun highlight"
Chances are that before the ink fades these names will be featured in a playbill of a Broadway musical: Dani Apple, Jordan Brown, Kyle Cohen, Alexis Floyd, Aric Floyd
, Jessie Gill, Caroline Hatch, Codie Higer
, Dan Hoy, Daniel Sovich, Miles Sternfeld, Elle Vertes and Sam Welch."
"Oh, and Aric Floyd
and Daniel Sovich are flat out brilliant as the comically soulful sidekicks to the school jock."
and Daniel Sovich, as the shrimp-sized sidekicks of the football hero, are totally delightful.
