"Evan Martin will, without a doubt, remain on my A-list of actors to call throughout both of our careers. His versatility, range, and triple-threat talent have proven to be invaluable to me. It is not every day a director/choreographer comes across an actor who can deliver the tap dancing showmanship of Snoopy (Snoopy!! The Musical) the raw uninhibited sexuality or Berger (Hair) and the soulful vulnerability of Jim (Big River) in one season."
Director/Choreographer/Author (A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder, Anything Goes. Author of The Business of Show)
"Evan is a selfless, spontaneous, generous performer who is not only a joy to watch on stage, he is a joy to share the stage with. As a writer/director, I trust Evan's instincts implicitly whether he is stepping into an existing role, or creating a new character from scratch. He seems perpetually prepared to bring exactly what is needed to the production, and he does so with a beautiful voice, compelling characterizations and physical dexterity."
"When Evan first applied to be a summer intern two summers ago he was largely an unknown. I could see he was largely talented but that was all. I had no way of knowing until we worked together that he was also the full package of talent, intelligence, desire and on top of that he was hardworking and about the nicest guy on the planet. He played supporting leads in all three of that summer's shows and we have since re-hired him into fully professional slots to play leads in "Snoopy", "Hair", and "Big River". He is an exceptional young man and I shouldn't be stating what a find he is because I should be trying to convince him to keep coming back to Fairfield! Seriously, anyone who hires Evan will have immediately improved the talent quotient in their cast. He is an exceptional talent and one you too will keep re-hiring after you use him once."

"It was my pleasure to work with Evan on "Forever Plaid". His eagerness to learn and desire to create a believeable character allowed the rehearsal process to be relaxed and productive. If passion for theater were measured in inches, it's no wonder he's so tall."
