Shining City - Gablestage

"When Weiner is onstage, it's easy to forget anybody else is there. For long moments, it also becomes possible to forget you're merely hearing his story told instead of seeing it enacted. Weiner is a master of pauses, breaths, rueful chuckles, and character voices that stab at mirth before slipping into boneless regret."- Miami New Times

 

"Weiner delivers a mesmerizing performance as John and he wrings every bit of sadness and humor from the extramarital temptation of a woman who seemed to offer what he couldn’t find with his wife. "  Sun Times

 

"The play hinges on Gregg Weiner’s performance as John. Weiner carries most of the play’s dramatic weight in two brilliantly delivered monologues" - Edge 

Red - Gablestage (Best of Newtimes Actor Award 2012)

"In one of his best creations to date, and Weiner has many, he is barely recognizable. Not because of the partly shaven head, glasses and costuming. It's as if he's changed the muscles and planes in his face. Weiner has disappeared and become this arrogant, bullying, opinionated and fascinating Mark Rothko." MIAMI ARTZINE

 

"Weiner continues his string of accomplished portraits here with this mercurial creature far different from last season’s Fifty Words. He skillfully makes Logan’s dense concepts instantly comprehensible to the audience." FLORIDA THEATRE ON STAGE

 

"Carried by Weiner's grounded yet forceful performance, this play is pretty damn good.  Weiner, a 5-time Carbonell winner who fits the role of Rothko just right with his baritone inflection, nuanced emotional outbursts, and uncanny ability to cut Ken down to size with merely a look." MIAMI NEW TIMES

The Seafarer - Mosaic - (Best Actor Carbonell Award 2010)

"You can read years of self-loathing and repressed violence in the way Gregg Weiner, playing Sharky, casts his eyes down and takes it. Then Weiner might flick his gaze up for a moment, at the end of a particular word during one of Creaghan's particularly stinging rebukes, and you wonder: What is it about that word? Has something similar been said before? The ensemble performance in The Seafarer is a masterwork of tiny gestures, flowing together to create a world indistinguishable from our own. If you were standing onstage, beside these men, the uncomfortable intimacy couldn't feel any more real." Miami New Times

"There's a moment in The Seafarer when you can't help but watch Gregg Weiner....you can see his character's whole life in his eyes at that moment, as he watches, contemplating every bad decision in his past and the possibility of a shortened future. That moment is the core of Weiner's deeply nuanced performance"Sun Sentinel

Weiner has received every plaudit a South Florida actor can garner in the past year — a Carbonell, drooling reviews, but he's never deserved them more than he does now. As Barry, he freaks, he fumes, his eyes become all big and red and scary, and his very skeleton seems to grow into a vast hulking hunk of hot-breathed rage as he bears down on little David Sirlois (who isn't really little but sure looks that way next to the molten Weinenator). He's just a gigantic, coked-up monster. Yet... he's likable." Miami New Times

 

"Weiner just won a Carbonell Award for his work in Mosaic Theatre's The Seafarer -- yet he's far, far better here. His boorish celebrity is all profane bluster and self-centered vanity, yet Weiner makes you feel sorry for this sad human being by the end of the evening." The Miami Herald

 

"Carbonell winner as best actor Gregg Weiner – makes the trip to Promethean seriously worthwhile. His portrayal of a celebrity who will do almost anything for money is exceptional." FLORIDA MEDIA NEWS

A Steady Rain - Gablestage

"Exquisitely detailed performances of Gregg Weiner and Todd Allen Durkin" MIAMI HERALD

 

"The script is brought to life through outstanding performances by Todd Allen Durkin and Gregg Weiner, two GableStage veterans brimming with intensity. Most of the value of this play is in their blistering performances. The two actors play off each other masterfully, revealing a paradoxical view of deeply flawed men caught up in dark, somber crises." MIAMI NEWTIMES

 

"Weiner and Durkin are brilliant actors — South Florida is lucky to have them — and here in Huff’s two-hander, their brilliance is laid bare for the audience to see." FLORIDA THEATRE ON STAGE 

 

"The two actors handle the huge amount of dialogue (and monologues) masterfully. They command attention, never drop pacing, and work off of each other beautifully. As actors they show great focus that allows one to forget that they are not really these characters." TALKIN  BROADWAY
