REVIEWS

YOU CAN'T HELP BUT ADMIRE AND RECOIL AT THE INTENSITY OF MARK DIACO, WHO CHANNELS SHADES OF BRANDO IN STREETCAR IN THE ROLE OF PALE.

THE AGE

THIS IS A POWERHOUSE PERFORMANCE FROM MARK DIACO, A FORCE OF TWISTED 'MASCULINITY', BUT A PERFORMANCE THAT GRADUALLY AND SUBTLY REVEALS DEPTHS OF HOPELESS VULNERABILITY, GUILT AND REGRET.  

STAGE WHISPERS

DIACO BARRELS IN AS PALE AT 100 MILES AN HOUR, AND HIS ENERGY AND COMMITMENT MEET THE TALL TASK OF THE CHARACTER. HE GROANS, FOLDS IN PAIN, STRUTS, COLLAPSES AND NAILS FRAILTY PROPPING UP AGGRESSION. 

THEATRE PEOPLE

"DIACO AS RAY MOSS HAS A LANGUID PRESENCE AND GIVES A SLOW - BURNING PERFORMANCE THAT IS TRANSFIXING TO WATCH. "

AUSTRALIAN STAGE

"DIACO DEMONSTRATES THAT DEEP RESERVE AND SELF-ASSURANCE THAT IS A HALLMARK OF ACTORS SUCH AS SEAN PENN AND BRAD PITT,

HE OWNS THE STAGE THROUGHOUT HIS SCENES."
