“Mike Brennan gives a stellar performance as the Big Bopper” 
– Kathy Strain, Broadway World (San Antonio)

“Mike Brennan storms through the part of the Big Bopper, offering his signature hit, "Chantilly Lace," with flash and flourish and encouraging audience participation” 
– Tom Titus, Huntington Beach Independent

“...and Mike Brennan brings a lot of humor and a deep, deep voice to his larger-than-life Big Bopper. I love the bit where he pulls the phone out of his leopard-print jacket and answers with the Bopper’s signature “Helloooo, baby!”
