DAMON SINGS ‘LETTING YOU GO’
JUNE 2014 “The Full Monty.” Mesa Encore Theatre. Director: Chris Hamby,
Damon was an unemployed blue-collar guy who attempts to make ends meet by working as male stripper for a night. Gil Benbrook of Talking Broadway wrote: “As Jerry, Damon J. Bolling imparts a nice sense of urgency and eagerness in his willingness to do just about anything to be with his son.”
2012. RENT. Scottsdale Desert Stages Theatre. Director: Terry Helland.
Art Musings critic Lynn Trimble wrote of Damon’s portrayal of Tom: “Damon … has the best vocal chops of the bunch.” Added Kerry Lengel of the Arizona Republic: “It almost seems like you’re on the stage with the actors, which is a magical feeling during such fine-tuned numbers as ‘Santa Fe,’ a breezy daydream about greener pastures, beautifully sung by Damon J. Bolling (as streetwise philosopher Tom Collins) and ornamented with a wistful, sleepwalking dance by the ensemble.”
