  1. 1. David Furr In the smash hit web series Jersey Shore Gone Wild which was Jersey Shore in the style of Oscar Wilde.TIME MAGAZINE named it on of the TOP TEN THINGS OF 2011.His reelhttp://vimeo.com/37339459David Furr as Ralph Howard in Evening w/ Meryl Streephttp://vimeo.com/31565928JERSEY SHORE GONE WILD“Santino Fontana and David Furr, (who) star in the new Broadway production of Oscar Wilde’s classicplay,The Importance of Being Earnest, have also embarked on a side project called “Jersey Shore GoneWilde,” afive part (web) series in which the pair reenact actual transcripts of Jersey Shore episodes ‘in the style ofOscar Wilde.’ Obviously, it’s basically the best thing we’ve ever seen and totally makes us wantto go see them on Broadway“Nothing short of magical.” -The Huffington Post / AOL“Hysterical to watch”- Entertainment Weekly Popwatch“‘’JERSEY SHORE GONE WILDE’ TAKES OVER THE INTERNET! Parody...unlike any other.”-Examiner“An Interesting and hilarious take . . . What Television would be like in a smarter world.” DAVID FURR: PRESS CLIPPINGS AS CHRIS KELLER IN ALL MY SONS Denver Theatre Center, Denver CO) <clip_image001.gif> -Ovation Award Nomination, Best Actor - -Henry Award Nomination, Best Supporting Actor -“David Furr, as Chris, gleans the best in Joe and Kate to deliver a finely crafted performance of genialityandidealism.” - VARIETY“As Chris, David Furr is the moral center of the play in a performance of quiet intelligence that slowlyenfolds theaudience.” -Rocky Mountain News“FURR, HARTMAN and PAULSEN TAKE YOUR BREATH AWAY in the unforgettable climax. David Furrbringsa strong and eventually very moving sense of reality to Chris Keller and is eminently watchable.” -LovelandReporter-Herald“THE MARVELOUS David Furr distinguishes himself in his impeccable DCTC introduction.” –Denver Post“A GANGBUSTERS, KNOCK OUT CAST. . . . David Furr wears the mantle of mantle of Chris with directaplomb.”- Colorado Backstage“A PERFECT PRODUCTION . . . . David Furr [is] flawless”- Colorado Christian Drama Review As HAMLET in HAMLETAt The Alabama Shakespeare Festival (2002)
  2. 2. “THIS IS NOT YOUR FATHERS HAMLET. David Furr is an actor who possesses the youth tomake Hamlet believable, but also the intelligence and acumen to create a fascinating psychic study. Furris especially accomplished in the famous soliloquies. He makes these speeches intimate, personal, verymodern emanations from the very soul of the disturbed prince. We clearly see and understand, if notagree with, this motivation in Furr’s intense performance. If the response of the opening night audience isan accurate indicator, this Hamlet will be talked about long after it has left the Festival Stage. See it forthe strength of its principal performances, as well as the antitheses of its vision.” - MontgomeryAdvertiser<Untitled.jpg>At The Colonial Theatre, RI (2001)“AN EXEPTIONAL PRODUCTION . . . David Furr as Hamlet offer[s] a freshness, an originality to a rolethat by all means should be shopworn by now. Furr presents a Hamlet who seems to be creating himselfas he goes along. It’s not that this Hamlet is inconsistent, it’s that his character unfolds for us as it does tohim. Furr gives us a Hamlet not triggered into a slow motion rampage but stunned into responding. Theactor also reminds us that Shakespeare wrote this as a prototype for Black Comedy.Furr underscores asense of absurdity as well as unpredictability. . . .Furr is showing us a man who is trying to figure out hisown feelings as we watch, and in these encounters Hamlet is a work in progress fascinating to behold.” -Providence Phoenix“DYNAMIC HAMLET IGNITES PRODUCTION . . . It is Furr’s dynamic, engergetic and humourousinterpretation of Hamlet that propels the production. Furr gives strength and vigor to the role.” –The DayAt The North Carolina Shakespeare Festival (2000)“ACTOR COMMANDS ‘HAMLET’ . . . David Furr is quite simply a magnificent Hamlet. . . . Furr’sperformance reminded us that Shakespeare’s creation is sublimely contradictory and, therefore, sublimelyhuman. . . . Furr played the prince with simmering passion.” -High Point Enterprise“A BREATH OF FRESH AIR . . . . [David Furr] brings a freshness of delivery to speeches the audienceknows as well as the actors, as well as a manic energy that gives added scope to the prince many faultfor being too cerebral.” – Greensboro News and Record“REFRESHING TAKE ON HAMLET . . . . Often the Dane is played with such brooding melancholy that bythe second act the audience is wondering why he doesn’t just go ahead and do himself in. David Furr’sHamlet, however, is played with a sense of grace, humor, and light heartedness that brings newperpective to this character. . . . Again, David Furr’s portrayal of Hamlet is excellent. He brings arefreshing air of casualness to the part that makes the young prince’s actions and attitudes seemunderstandable, which is no small accomplishment.” -ESP As PRINCE HAL in HENRY IV North Carolina Shakespeare Festival (1999)“ THIS PRODUCTION IS WORTH SEEING FOR [Furr’s] PERFORMANCE ALONE. . . . Furr, who is alsoexcellent as the lead in this year’s “Romeo and Juliet” can only be called a natural talent. Serious theatre-goers owe it to themselves to see him while he’s still in town, for if luck is on his side, this young man ison his way to bigger venues. Something tells me that one day we’ll be speaking of the days when DavidFurr trod the boards at our local festival in much the same way that baseball fans speak yearningly of DonMattingly’s days at War Memorial Stadium.”- ESP“David Furr’s delivery of this soliloquy is BREATHTAKING, conveying all the fervor of the young heir’slofty intent with just the lightest dusting of royal conceit. It’s a wonderfully rich, wonderfully intimate freeze-frame as the swirl of the young prince’s maturation whizzes by. David Furr is exceptionally attuned to thehumor, the humanity, and the incandescent nobility of Hal.”- Creative LoafingAs BRUNO in CHRISTMAS ON MARS, Old Globe Theatre:“SERIOUSLY FUNNY . . . . David Furr brings layers of complexity to the seemingly not so complex Bruno.Furr’s highly physical performance smartly externalizes the turmoil he feels within.” - North County TimesAs ROMEO in ROMEO AND JULIET:“The performances are strong with Furr and Krausen the standouts. . . . Furr brings a weariness toRomeo that dissolves upon his meeting Juliet. In short, you believe them.” –Winston Salem JournalAs GRUMIO in TAMING OF THE SHREW:“Without a doubt, the strongest performance is turned in by David Furr. He plays the daft, easily confusedbut kind-hearted manservant Grumio with a comic self-assuredness rarely seen in these parts.” –ESP
  3. 3. “THE BARD IS HOT . . . . David Furr mines more comedy than you usually see from Grumio, Petruchio’ssufferingservant, embellishing his ordeals with some brillian physical comedy. He’s ready to toss his body onto Petruchio’s oaken dinner table like a sack of wheat, to wondrous comic effect.” –Creative Loafing “Brilliantly Casual”- Montgomery IndependentAs DETECTIVE SGT. TROTTER in THE MOUSETRAP:“DAVID FURR COMMANDS THE STAGE as the detective who calls the shots when there is a killer to befound.”- Salt Lake Tribune“A KILLER TOP-TO-BOTTOM CAST with award-caliber work turned in by nearly every performer.” –SaltLakeCity Weekly“Furr seemed to be in control of the cast as much as his character was in control of the other charactersin the play. His prowess was evident as he took the hands of Miller and Kate Shindle and with a lookinspired the othersto follow suit and join hands for a group curtain call.” –SLCC GlobeCOAST TO COASTPRESS FOR DAVID FURR IN EQUIVOCATION AT MANHATTAN THEATRE CLUBNew York Times:[Sharpe is] portrayed with simmering intensity by David Furr (also a jovial KingJames).Oscar E.

Themost hilarious -- andremarkable -- display of this comes late in the play, duringwhich Furr brilliantly portrays both acharacter in a Shakespeare play and the decidedly juvenile and somewhat idiotic JamesI, who is watchingraptly in the audience.”Talkin Broadway“Furr is impressive in roles as diverse as the young go-getter,a brokenprisoner, and King James himself.”New Jersey room:“Whether he plays a numbskull leading man of the Globe, or ajocular Scotsburredking James, David furr brings amusing touches of levity to theproductionBackstage:
  4. 4. “David Furr has fiery fun as the volatile King James and thetempermentalleading man Sharpe.”Broadway and MeIn more flush times, additional actors might have played all theparts, butthat would have denied us a delightful scene in the second actin which theappealing David Furr plays two characters nearly simultaneously”Cardus.com“With all the excellent acting in this Manhattan Theatre Clubproduction, Ifound it most difficult to tear my gaze away from the charactersplayed byDavid Furr. As Sharpe, the hot-tempered but gifted youngest member of theKings Men, as a childish but willful King James, and as thebroken ThomasWintour, Furrs energy and charisma were palpable. Whenswitching between somany roles, even the deftest actor can struggle not to appear tobe "acting,"but as Sharpe, in particular, Furr inhabits the role, bringinghim to life witha myriad of small, engaging details.”Grand Tour.Com“I loved and adored each several actor, especially David Furr asSharpe/ThomasWintour/King James I, who managed to play James and Sharpe inthe same scene,wearing the same kilt and black denim doublet (I kid you not),bouncing fromchair to stage and back again, pushing a plaid up and down hisshoulder andchanging expressions and accents on a thin dime.”Advocate.com“Standing out in a fine cast that features What’s That Smell’s DavidPittu andMad About You’s John Pankow as the Bard, the handsome and sometimesshirtlessDavid Furr hams up the kilted king’s Scottish brogue andbisexuality,particularly when he molests a Macbeth actor in drag.”Broadwayworld.comAgain, lesser actors could have made the transitions jarring,but David
