"Boyishly dim cowboy Will Parker is played with more buoyancy than a rubber ball by delightful Jake Swain whose voice is a perfectly honed instrument for the effervescent 'Kansas City' song-and-dance scene. [. . .] When these two scene-stealers join up for 'All Er Nuthin’' in Act 2, the perfect combination of talent and chemistry lights up the stage. These are two actors to watch for in future successes." - Critics on the Aisle

"Jake Swain, as Will Parker, gives a wonderfully winning performance and pursues his love for Ado Annie (Gizel Jiménez) with genuine feeling." - Shoreline Times

(Oklahoma!: Goodspeed Opera House)




"A few of my other favorites included [. . .] Jake Swain’s portrayal of Mr. Collins, whom we can categorize as awkward on a whole different level and who provided some great comic moments to the production." - Front Row Reviewers Utah

"As the Stage Manager, who serves as a narrator of the play, Jake Swain expertly handles the homey language of Wilder’s script." - UTBA
