Orlando Sentinel

for a previous production “Undeniable magic…In Padgett's hands, a simple concept becomes a masterpiece just as much as Beethoven's ‘Ninth’…Top-notch execution. 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…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.” Full Review

Calgary Herald

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.” Full Review

Edmonton Journal

for a previous production “A jubilant celebration of music...Padgett convinces us that each style of music has its merits, and that seemingly different musicians share a singular passion. He does all that with impressive guitar interludes…Padgett 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.” Full Review
