"Vincent Pastore and Sally Struthers to star in Bullets Over Broadway at Ogunquit Playhouse"
"One of the high points of the play, and there are many, is when Cheech and his fellow gangsters perform the song and dance number, Tain’t Nobody’s Biz-ness If I Do, Reed Campbell was absolutely fantastic with this high energy number and had many in the audience on their feet by the end. Campbell is an amazing talent who time and again wowed the crowd at the Playhouse. I want to add that both John Rochette and Reed Campbell are extraordinarily talented young actors. Both of these men have promising careers ahead of them."
"The men get the most dramatic dance number in “Tain’t Nobody’s Biz-ness If I Do,” helmed by Reed Campbell. Campbell is wonderfully furtive and enigmatic as bodyguard Cheech, tasked with watching over gangster boss Nick Valenti’s girlfriend, Olive, during rehearsals.
When Campbell breaks into song, his voice deep, gruff and rich, it takes the audience by surprise."

It's Reed Campbell's Cookie, however, who is the scene-stealer. Campbell has a presence on stage that demands to be seen and the deliverance of his lines mixed with his use of body language and space leaves one thinking he could be Jim Carrey and Danny Kaye's love child. Campbell is definitely the one to watch as his career unfolds."
"Reed Campbell as Cookie McGee has to be one of the most talented character actors I’ve ever seen on stage. The only thing topping his stupendous acting chops are his vocals. You are drawn to him when he’s onstage; his comedic timing, facial expressions and line delivery are spot on every moment of the show. During “Fascinating Rhythm”, he’s pulled into a huge song and dance number in hopes of distracting the feds from his real motives. In the duet between him and the “Duchess” during “Looking for a Boy”, I was laughing so hard I was in tears, and the audience’s thunderous applause at the end showed the exquisite execution of the scene."
"If scene stealing was a crime then Reed Campbell (Cookie) would surely be convicted, even by the jury from the O.J trial. He’s totally delightful as Billie’s helper in bootlegging who is forced to act as the butler at the fully inhabited beach house. It’s not only the golden lines that makes Campbell shine, but also his exuberant facial expressions. From our seats in the upper level of the theater, Campbell spoke to us, without even saying a word. Though Cookie’s skills as a butler are debatable, he does serve up a healthy dose a laughter. Whenever the opportunity for a punchline knocks, he answers."
