“Stand outs in the show included David Reed who played many parts including the M.C. at the Apollo. His singing talent and comedic moments stole many of the scenes and complemented (Todd) Meredith in his role” 
– Kathy Strain, BroadwayWorld.com

“(David Reed’s) spotlessly clean tenor makes for mellow appeal as a snazzy, jazzy Apollo host and performer” 
– Bob Curtright, The Wichita Eagle
