 REVIEWS 

BRIGADOON, THE SHAW FESTIVAL

 

"As our star-crossed lovers, Krissa and Gordon have a convincing chemistry...Krissa is a beaming ham during the signature duet “Almost Like Being in Love.” "

- Carly Maga, Toronto Star

"Krissa has a pure, sweet voice that makes his 11 o'clock number 'There But For You Go I' a highlight."

- Glenn Sumi, NOW Magazine

"In his first Shaw season, Krissa makes a good impression here. His strong singing voice is crucial to the first act's charm, and there's plenty of swooning with Gordon in the clever and buoyant standard "Almost Like Being in Love.""

- John Law, The St. Catharines Standard

"George Krissa has a shining tenor and well conveys Tommy’s transition from confusion to enchantment... His finest moment may be his final song “There But for You Go I”, which, despite the formality of its language, Krissa turns into a moving expression of Tommy’s love."

- Christopher Hoile, Stage Door

THE HORSE AND HIS BOY, THE SHAW FESTIVAL

"George Krissa makes for a delightful villain in the spoiled and childish Prince Rabadash, who audiences will be more than enthusiastic to root against."

- Steve Henschel, Niagarathisweek.com

THE ROCKY HORROR SHOW, THE STRATFORD FESTIVAL

 

"George Krissa had his work cut out in topping the physical perfection already on display as Frank’s mad-science creation Rocky but really does look like some kind of god in his teeny gold lamé trunks and blond wig..."

- Karen Fricker, Toronto Star

"Rocky is George Krissa, who is blessed not only with a perfect physique but with a fine voice with a full and rounded tone.  This helps to make his otherwise forgettable song “The Sword of Damocles” one of the highlights of Act 1."

- Christopher Hoile, Stage Door

"What a way to make your Stratford debut! He makes his presence known with the 'Sword of Damacles' number... His Rocky is immediately loveable, and the audience is quickly rooting for him."

- Lauren Gienow, BroadwayWorld.com

MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET, SEGAL CENTRE/GLOBE THEATRE

"Krissa’s Presley is wide-eyed and optimistic, and pre-Vegas, pre-sequined costumes. His subtle performance gives the other characters their chance in the spotlight. But he doesn’t miss opportunities to pop and gyrate and remind the audience who the King is — and soon will be."

- Thia James, Saskatoon Star Pheonix

 "George Krissa leads the company in a touching rendition of Peace in the Valley and...forces people to their feet with his exciting delivery of Hound Dog."

- Maggie Owen, BroadwayWorld.com

WEST SIDE STORY, CITADEL THEATRE

"Krissa is a revelation. He takes the usually whitebread character of Tony and with a strong, dimensional stage presence and expressive tenor voice, gives us an immensely likeable kid."

- Colin MacLean, Gig City Edmonton
