The Merchant of Venice
The Merchant of Venice, Theatre Review
by Howard Miller

Two Romantic Comedies, Written a Century Apart, Share a Single Truth
By George Logan
"All the parts were played well, and broadly, all by either members of the Clarence Brown company or UT theater students. Michael Moreno, who plays Babs, is an obvious favorite. He’ll remind you of another famous cross-dressing farciste, Tim Curry, but Moreno is more manic and more compact. He’s funny even when his lines aren’t. His loony grin is charming for close to two hours."

'Charley's Aunt' proves that comic farce is timeless
By Darren Dunlap
"Director Kate Buckley cast well for the part of Babberly. Moreno, with his crazy Gilda Radner hair and Marty Feldman eyes, can make you laugh with a gesture or only a word or two."

Eno's 'The Flu Season' takes stage
By Harold Duckett
"As Man, Moreno is bewildered, withdrawn and oddly threatening. He can make one laugh and feel clumsy at the same time."
"Moreno has that Gene Wilder quality of looking like he is about to say something funny, but when it isn't, he comes off with tinges of sizzling sarcasm instead."
