Entertaining, Great acting, Funny, Clever, Refreshing

See it if you want to see an actor, musician, comedian, impersonator and improv all in one show by 1 person. Enjoyable show. I would recommend.

Don't see it if you don't like 1 man shows. Not interested in different music genres. Not interested in seeing a person that is very talented.

Exquisite, Great singing, Great acting, Enchanting, Intelligent

See it if You like character studies. This one man does 6 roles seamlessly, shifting between characters & music styles yet keeps each interesting.

Don't see it if You don’t like one person shows or shows that rely on your interest being getting to know who these men are. I found it extraordinary.

Masterful, Funny, Quirky, Clever, Refreshing

See it if Multi-talented guiratust-singer-comedian plays 6 characters with different musical styles, and banters with the audience. Lots of fun.

Don't see it if You aren't interested in an eclectic combination of music. If you sit in the first couple of rows, you may get called upon.

"While he astutely recognizes and captures the familiar archetypes, Padgett also makes us feel as if his characters are real people. He fully inhabits them, and we come to know them through their reminiscences and philosophical musings, through the music that defines them, and through their informal, and often hilarious, interactions with members of the audience, which culminate in original impromptu songs and heartfelt messages about the power of music to bring us together."

For a previous production

“In Padgett's hands, a simple concept becomes a masterpiece just as much as Beethoven's ‘Ninth’…It's fascinating to watch Padgett switch from one character to another—sometimes lightning fast…It's a master class in creating sharply etched and immediately memorable characters…And, of course, there's his musicianship...Padgett displays both impressive technical and emotional chops…Experiencing this towering tour-de-force is a thrill for the heart, the funny bone—and the soul.”

For a previous production

“All six of these men are as distinct as their music so when Padgett has them play a song together the effect is mesmerizing and this is where the true magic of ‘6 Guitars’ becomes evident. Padgett is showing us why music soothes the savage breast and feeds the soul and he’s doing it with a twinkle in his eye and some impressive finger work on his guitar. The word is already out about just how entertaining this little show is.”

For a previous production

“A jubilant celebration of music...Padgett convinces us that each style of music has its merits, and that different musicians share a singular passion…He embodies the different men convincingly. But it seems like he’s imitating more than he’s acting. Telling six different guitarists’ stories is an interesting idea, but not when they’re all based on the obvious stereotypes we’ve seen 100 times over...The show is slick and he elicits laughs...But it would be better if it pushed a boundary or two.”
