“Edward O’Blenis provides an emotional soul to the story as Cecil, a very earnest and down-to-earth sailor. O’Blenis displayed not only immense practicality and adorable awkward moments of humor, but a fantastic transition in Act II as the character takes some drastic measures to restore order to the voyage. “
– Johnna Leary , Broadway World.
“Edward O’Blenis has a scene-stealing turn at the top of ActII as a wonderfully sassy and over the top Translating Attendant.”
– Johnna Leary, Broadway World
“Edward O’Blenis plays this role with heart (and a neat stint on the accordion) with a textured layering of awestruck respect for the elder while watching with increasing horror as Charles’s willful belligerence threatens them all.”
– Debbie Minter Jackson, DC Theatre Scene.
“Particularly notable is Edward O’Blenis as Dr. Astrov, the physician who is repeatedly called to tend to the clan’s aging patriarch. The actor nimbly turns the tics in the script into gentle comedy, even as he communicates the troubled emotional core of the character, who has found himself worn down by his profession.”
– Andy Propst, Backstage Magazine
“…the dark and earth bound semimonster, Caliban (wonderfully essayed by Edward O’Blenis.)”
