A Midsummer Night's Dream

role: Puck | The Repertory Theatre of St. Louis - 2014


“Jim Poulos ties everything together as Robin Goodfellow, also known as Puck. The sprightly actor bounds around the stage and works wonders seeming to do everything but pull a rabbit out of his hat. It’s a remarkable performance that steals a show that’s full of scene-stealing moments from everyone.”

—Steve Allen, Stage Door St. Louis

“Jim Poulos is sensational as the beguiling Puck.”

—Lynn Venhaus, Bellville News-Democrat

“Jim Poulos makes Oberon’s servant Puck both intelligent and fierce in arranging all the mayhem, even when he gets things hopelessly mixed up…Great double-casting at all levels here…”

—Richard Green, Talkin’ Broadway, St. Louis

“Jim Poulos is terrifically mischievous as Puck.”

—Malcolm Gay, Riverfront Times

“…played expertly by Jim Poulos…”

—Emily Scharf, PlaybackStL.com

“…standouts include Poulos as the engagingly mischievous Puck.”

—Michelle Kenyon (SnoopMK), SnoopsTheatreThoughts.com

“Jim Poulos delivers a fine performance as the naughty Puck, aka Robin Goodfellow.”

—Chris Gibson, Broadwayworld.com

“Barnes and his polished cast expertly ‘weave together’ the story’s separate threads.”

—Judith Newmark, St. Louis Post-Dispatch

A Midsummer’s Night’s Dream at The Rep is truly a transporting production. Done with great love, care, energy, humor and beauty, this very determined show quickly engages the audience on a level of colorful imagination and whimsy that is irresistible. The production is uniformly funny…In the last scene, the character of Puck implores the audience in his epilogue to not be put off by the play’s unbridled flights of fancy. “Gentles, do not reprehend: if you pardon, we will mend.” Not a problem, Puck.

—Harry Hamm, KMOX – CBS St. Louis
