Review: All My Sons

Geoffrey Kent appears like a walking ghost, embodying the role of Annie’s brother.  This part is a real breakthrough for Kent, who’s made a whole career of playing confident, sunny, swash-buckling characters.  Georgie is a sad and simple storm-cloud of a man, portrayed by Kent with substance and honesty.

WESTWORD: Best Director of 2017

BEST DIRECTOR: Geoffrey Kent directed Waiting for Godot at the Arvada Center in the spring, followed by The Foreigner in fall, and his talent for comic schtick — evident in both productions though very differently employed in each — is peerless. -Juliet Wittman, WESTWORD

Review: Arvada Center’s “Waiting for Godot” packs a wallop

Here an emphasis on vaudevillian antics, including physical shtick reminiscent of the Marx brothers, offsets the difficulty of the philosophical exploration. Particularly in the first act, silliness eclipses the desperation and pointlessness. By the second act, when aching emptiness really kicks in, the darker, more disturbing tones take hold. -Joanne Ostrow, Denver Post
