Selected personal reviews
Princess Theatre, Melbourne, and Lyric Theatre, Sydney.
‘Tom Burlinson is splendid as Leo…in wonderful voice. His comic talent emerges deliciously.’
The Age 20/4/2004.
‘Burlinson’s transition from straight to neurotic to a fully blown Broadway producer is a joy to watch’ Sunday Herald Sun 18/4/2004.
As Bialystock’s sidekick, the initially timid then empowered Leo Bloom, Tom Burlinson is terrific. His first big turn, I Wanna be a Producer, is enacted in true Broadway style.’ The Sydney Morning Herald 19/4/2004.
‘An early favourite was set in Leo’s time-efficient office…where Leo bursts out of his cubicle cocoon to win our hearts and Max’s too. It was a turning point that made Burlinson shine like a newborn for the rest of the show.’ The Australian 19/4/2004.
‘Tom Burlinson is terrific in the role. He sings like an angel and acts like a dream. The physical comedy is superbly spry in the way it captures the timidity and klutzishness, even though Burlinson never ceases to look like a very likeable – if improbable – leading man.’ The Weekend Australian Financial Review 23-26/4/2004.
‘…Tom Burlinson steals the show as Leo-his unbounded energy on the stage a pleasure to watch…Burlinson has to take his character on a complete spiral of emotions, and change Leo’s attitude from a lousy no-hoper to a confident, manly masterpiece. He does it brilliantly, not missing a beat…’ BroadwayAustralia.com 25/5/2005
