Comic casting is highlighted by Jeffery Binder’s Zazu, a wise and witty bird who earns major amusement with his insinuating portrayal.

Variety “The Lion King”

Broadway veteran Jeffrey Binder, making his MRT debut, plays Sean as a kind of guy we all know, a rueful, stubble-chinned wiseacre. His performance deepens along with the hole Sean digs for himself.

– Boston Globe “The White Chip”

Director Zeljko Djukic ups the ante by having her played by the superb Jeffrey Binder — younger than the role requires, and a man. Although he eventually changes into a long skirt, earrings and makeup, Binder doesn’t do drag. He’s not trying to impersonate a woman: He’s paying tribute to one — you wonder if Binder is playing the Artiste herself or a devoted fan imitating her.

– NYPost  “Music Hall”

Maybe poor Penthesilea should have heeded the advice of Odysseus (a smooth Jeffrey Binder). “Take it from me,” he says. “No man is worth all this.”

– NYTimes “Love in the Wars”

The here’s-the-way-it-really-was speech Mr. LaBute provides for A is simply devastating, and devastatingly delivered by Jeffrey Binder.

– NYTimes “Romance”

Most intriguing is “Romance,” by Neil LaBute, a scene between ex-lovers whose genders are unspecified in the script. Under the direction of Dolores Rice, two terrific male actors (Jeff Binder and Demond Green) perform the play two different ways…

– New Yorker “Romance”

They and the other “side men” (Kevin Geer, Michael Mastro, Jeff Binder and Angelica Torn) show just the inspiring ensemble work you’d expect after having done the play both off-Broadway and on.

– Post-Gazette London “Side Man” on the West End

The memorable performances are those of Mr. Binder as Pantalone, a doddering old fool given to inappropriate laughter and sobbing, and of Andrew Weems as the head eunich, Truffaldino, devoted to keeping the princess man-less.

– New York Times “Princess Turandot”

Gulfshore Playhouse has gone bold in 2018. The theater company next month will unveil architectural plans for a new multimillion-dollar, 400-seat theater. And now here’s “Scapino,” a bold, creative stroke of comedic genius built for Southwest Florida audiences and maybe even beyond.

– Naples Daily News “Scapino” written by Jeffrey Binder based on Moliere’s Scapin

Higher, written by and starring Jeffrey Binder

Binder excels at single-actor works, as audiences who saw him in “An Iliad” here know. He can whirl around to change characters in conversation with an accent, a new arm position, an emotional tenor. He crosses the stage and emerges five centuries earlier – or later – depending on whether he is the semi-aimless wanderer or the driven Petrilk… by turns he’s an officious cleric, spritelike guide, contentious foreman, outraged wife, tipsy Scotsman, omniscient observer or, oh, St. Michael the Archangel.

Higher

It’s a powerful, gripping work. Mr. Binder’s scene with his father are heartbreaking, but also funny, as his father tells jokes, even while fighting cancer. With just a few lines, you get an idea of what this man was like. This is Mr. Binder’s superpower, to embody others so quickly and convincingly, like an artist who can bring someone to life with just a few strokes of the pen.
