"Brett Travis, a rising star , delivers an otherworldly performance as Tommy. With long curly hair and an intense stare, you can feel the rush of exhilaration emanating from him as he breaks into rock anthems like ?Amazing Journey? and ?I?m Free.?
The Brooklyn Paper, Mike McLaughlin, writes:
Gallery Players does such a bang-up job with ?The Who?s Tommy? that you?ll be asking, ??Tommy,? can I see you ? again??
"Park Slope hasn?t rocked this hard since Life In a Blender played Barbes!"
"Tommy (Brett Travis) has an outstanding, crystal clear voice."

"We could go on and on about Brett Travis (Tommy), clearly a probable rising star with enough looks, talent and charisma to write his own ticket to the top..."
Dayton City Paper, Jacqui Theobald, writes:
"Brett Travis as Trekkie Monster is a show-stopper every time he exuberantly growls his favorite line, "Porn!" In contrast his other puppet is mild mannered Nicky."
Cincinnati, writer Scott Cain, writes:
"Brett Travis nails all of the expected comedy as Trekkie Monster, and is a solid Nicky as well."
Dayton Most Metro.com, Russell Florence, Jr., writes:
"Excellently detailed, full-fleshed featured performances are given by the amiable Brett Travis as Rod's laidback roomie Nicky and porn-adoring Trekkie Monster."
"The Arts Louisville", Kate Barry, writes:
"As the title character, Brett Travis had some mighty big shoes to fill. Playing a part that has been played by Ted Neeley, Ian Gillan of Deep Purple and Sebastian Bach of Skid Row, Travis certainly had his work cut out for him. With a blonde mane and rock star vocals, Travis was vulnerably humanistic as the title role. Whether it is in his ultimate test of faith in ?Gethsemane? or in exchanges with Pilate toward the end of the play, Travis played the part like a rock star."
The Reporter-Herald, Joyce Davis, writes:
"Brett Travis is perfectly cast as Roger, the dreamer who longs to start life anew in sunny Santa Fe, despite being penniless and felled by AIDS. This is Travis? dream role, and he thoroughly convinces the audience of this as he shows Roger?s struggles to write the perfect song, a testimony to his life. Travis? voice beautifully captures the poignancy and an underlying sweetness in Roger?s character."
The Coloradoan, Stacey Nick, writes:
"How do you measure a must-see musical? In fans, in great songs, in moving performances?... There's HIV-positive singer/songwriter Roger (played by the immeasurably talented Brett Travis)..."
The Denver Post, John Moore, gave Rent 3.5 stars and writes:
"They're young. They're sexy. And, they're really good, right down to the last ensemble member."
"Rent" is a character-driven story, but in the end, it's a show-off show. It's about big, infectious concert numbers like Roger's (played by New Yorker, Brett Travis) "One Song Glory,"...And, yes, love songs don't get lovelier than "Light My Candle," "I Should Tell You" and "Goodbye Love."
The Republican-American, Joanne Greco Rochman, writes:
"Brett Travis is a golden Radames, the conquering soldier and intended husband for Amneris, the princess about to take over the Pharaoh?s throne...
Travis is well-cast in this production. He is a commanding force, physically and vocally. He knows just when to temper his powerful control."
The News-Times, Chelsea Plemmons, writes:
"Egyptian military hero Radames (Brett Travis) contributes a stirring turn as Radames. He's a handsome fellow with a solid vocal style that adds to the show's romantic appeal...
Horne and Travis are riveting singing "Elaborate Lives."
Sky Hi-News Daily Prospector, Cyndi Palmer, writes:
Brett Travis, who plays Joseph, has an incredible singing voice, and like the coat Travis' character wears, he is a cut above the average as the lead in this play. Just the emotion he shows during "Close Every Door" is amazing."
The Santa Fe Reporter, Mario Cabrera, writes:
"Brett Travis, a young actor-whom aside from strong theatrical talents, the Almighty also well endowed with other "attributes"--impeccably plays the incorrigible Berger"
