“Joshua Finkel in role of Ed Kleban is mesmerizing. Finkel is the total embodiment of Kleban's energy and pain on stage—he took the full range of emotions let them out little by little in everything he did on stage, he’s a consummate actor. Vocally Finkel continues to astound—every song from “Light On My Feet” to “Self Portrait” is an exemplary illustration of dramatic singing.”Ryan M. LuevanoTheater Critic and Musical Director
“Joshua Finkel appeared in the original Broadway cast from its very first preview...Since Finkel covered the role of Molina ...a better choice could not have been made for MTG’s Molina. Finkel’s work on Monday night can only be described as virtuoso, the kind of multi-layered, deeply moving, virtually flawless performance one usually sees after months of rehearsals and performances. Disappearing entirely into Molina’s gaunt, flamboyant, tormented, proud, humiliated, defiant skin, Finkel acted and sang the hell out of the role, getting every possible laugh from Molina’s fabulousness and every possible tear from his poignancy.”Steven StanleyTheater Critic, StageSceneLA.com
“As the French candelabra Lumiére, Joshua Finkel nearly outshone (pun intended) all the other performers. Finkel led the show's most delightful musical sequence, the can-can-like "Be Our Guest," featuring a boutique of high-kicking animated kitchen utensil.”Cary GinellTheatre Critic, The Acorn and VC Onstage
“"Joshua Finkel plays Audrey's boyfriend, a motorcycle riding, nitrous-oxide huffing "professional' intent on bringing pain to everyone he come across. Finkel's performance is both hilarious and disturbing, satisfying the audience's need to hate the odious and laugh at the absurd."”DAVE EISENSTADTERTheater Critic, , The Monadnock Sentinel Transcrip5
“"It's nothing short of breathtaking, especially as performed by the talented Joshua Finkel. Finkel comes out in a toga worn by Curtis in Spartacus and sings Sondheim's "Lovely" from A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum. Finkel has a lot of fun as, bare-chested, he struts about a la Hercules, flexing his muscles to the delight of ladies in the audience. Finkel also has a field day with his The Flintstones costume in leopard as well as one worn by Arnold S. in the remake of Around the World in Eighty Days. Other of his musical highlights include: "The Impossible Dream", "Anything You Can Do, I Can Do Better" and a lyric change for the show's opener and closer to the song "That's Entertainment."”Don GrigwareTheater Critic, Broadway World and Grigware Talks Theatre
