what some folks have said.


"a striking example of pure kinetic performance"

LA Times

BY FAR MY FAVORITE rendition of the show...vibrates with virtuoso singing and authentic heart
— Charles McNulty, LA TImes
MAJOR KUDOS should be given to the musical’s puppeteers...for bringing the deathly funny and monstrous Audrey II to life.
— Dino-Ray Ramos, Deadline 

LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS // Pasadena Playhouse

INCREDIBLY EXCITING...Turbiak plays it to the hilt. He is a venomous instigator...ballistic consonants and an unrelenting performance intensity
— Ellen Dostal, Broadway World
RECOMMENDED...STAGE RAW TOP TEN...a politically relevant production that packs quite a punch...Paul Turbiak’s Cassius is powerful and conniving. He’s wonderfully rash, ambitious, and passionate
— Audrey Schlief, Stage Raw
this critic was most affected by the CONNIVING, INSIDIOUS POWER demonstrated by Mr. Turbiak’s Cassius
— Bill Reese, Table to Stage

JULIUS CAESAR // Independent Shakespeare Company

the EXCELLENT Paul Turbiak
— Gray Palmer, Stage Raw
DELIGHTFULLY DARK in all the best ways
— Jeff Heimbuch, Horror Buzz

WOOD BOY DOG FISH // Rogue Artists Ensemble & Garry Marshall Theatre

KAIDAN PROJECT: WALLS GROW THIN // Rogue Artists Ensemble & East West Players

— Margaret Gray, LA Times
A FASCINATING ADVENTURE INTO THE UNKNOWN…As artistically beautiful and complex as it is otherworldly…[Paul Turbiak] was one of many highlights
— Ellen Dostal, Broadway World
A MONUMENTAL ACHIEVEMENT...a tremendously talented cast of performers...No one could tell this story better.
— Chris Wollman, Haunting

AT THIS EVENING'S PERFORMANCE // North Coast Repertory Theatre

fitfully funny suspense satire...Paul Turbiak, nailing the proud persona of this cocky upstart
— James Hebert, The San Diego Union-Tribune
terrific cast of ‘master farceurs’...some of Southern California’s finest comedy actors...blessed with actor Paul Turbiak
— Jack Lyons, Desert Local News

mysterious and magical...FANTASTIC...Turbiak making for a chameleonic adversary.
— James Hebert, The San Diego Union-Tribune
Fantastic Fun! Each cast member pulls off their role(s) superbly!
— Diana Saenger, The La Jolla Light

THE ILLUSION // North Coast Repertory Theatre

RECOMMENDED! striking, offbeat work with unexpected left turns, from a Demon (Paul Turbiak, dryly witty)...a wild, thought-provoking ride!
— Terry Morgan, Stage Raw
opens strong with The Demon (Paul Turbiak)...Turbiak is so dynamic, so supremely entertaining that he draws you into the piece and wins your commitment to stay the course
— Ernest Kearney, The TVolution

THE SUPERHERO AND HIS CHARMING WIFE // Not Man Apart & Highways Performance Space

a breathtaking feat of theater!
— F. Kathleen Foley, LA Times
The cast of Wood Boy Dog Fish puts their sweat and tears into to this show—they work harder than any other cast I’ve seen. The most notable performances are that of Nina Silver (Blue) and Paul Turbiak (Fire Eater)...Turbiak’s performance demands attention whenever he’s on stage; he’s the showman and the tormentor.
— Ryan Luevano, Tin Pan LA

WOOD BOY DOG FISH // Rogue Artists Ensemble & Bootleg Theatre

inventive, lively...vibrant production...All the actors take on numerous roles, requiring inventive staging: I could have sworn there was more than one Paul Turbiak.
— Margaret Gray, LA Times
A tour de force...Paul Turbiak is delightful...He leaps from male to female parts with glee and each time he lands, the audience is in for a treat.
— Millicent Borges-Accardi, Topanga Messenger

EQUIVOCATION // Will Geer Theatricum Botanicum

DR JEKYLL AND MR HYDE // Actors Co-op Theater

GO! Well told...features a fine ensemble!
— Lovell Estell III, LA Weekly
Every single member of the cast of six is absolutely terrific, with special snaps to a standout Turbiak, whose transformation from good guy Lanyon to the evilest Mr. Hyde of all is quite breathtaking.
— Steven Stanley, Stage Scene LA
