PRESS & PRAISE
"Jamie Beaman is one of the first calls I'd make in the formulation of my dream company. He is a first-rate human being, and a gifted actor. His warm heart, generosity, and eagerness to create something special onstage time and time again results in that miraculous thing: something special. Time and time again."
"As the cowardly Sir Robin, James Beaman shines as a true song and dance man."
-- Talkin' Broadway
"On very rare occasions, a show comes along that is so extraordinary, statements of excellence don't tell the full story...sheer brilliance."
"Beaman is gifted with a strong voice which he uses with palpable emotion and power in the anthemic "I Am What I Am." Beaman nails it, con brio."
"James Beaman lights up the stage as the tragic fool Buzz, HIV-Positive at a time when AIDS was an immediate death sentence."
James Beaman raises the bar with his outstanding dramatic performance as exploitive Nazi sympathizer Max Detweiler."
"Lord Evelyn is one of those thankless roles, the stuffed-shirt Englishman, but Beaman gradually soars with it to comic heights."
"One of those rare professional actor/singer/dancers who has mastered the worlds of Shakespeare, cabaret, and many others in between."
--Foster's Daily Democrat
"Thank you, James. Your participation, dramatically and musically, was a huge contribution. You can read my dialogue any time. You can sing my lyrics anytime. I can't express my gratitude for your craft, your patience, and your finesse."
--Rupert Holmes, author, "The Nutty Professor"
