"Neil Rogers as Arthur Putnam seemed the ideal choice, what with his commanding voice and tender grace of movement. [He].. certainly added levels to the work that the dialogue simply did not. Rogers’ timing, posture and grace pulled you into his world without question. Before you had time to even contemplate or reason, you were on his side. SCORE for Rogers!"
- Amy Thurmond - The Column
As General Products’ Chairman John Blessington, Neil Rogers sums up their collective intentions; “If General Products doesn’t make it, there’s no money in it.” Rogers makes the most of the line, and … shows a flair for physical comedy that’s entertaining to watch. - Penelope Taylor - Theatre Jones
As John Blessington, Neil Rogers plays the greedy, womanizing chairman of the board with careful restraint. He is a good leader of his small band of corporate goons. He is always ready with a devilish plan presented with a charming grin, which Rogers pulls off in such a way to make me nervous for my wallet. - Jeremy Osborne - The Column
"I must also acknowledge Neil Rogers' performance as Susan's husband Gerald, a role which seems most suitably written for Tim Curry. With just the right balance of comedy and severity, Rogers plays the part of Susan's conservative husband, trying to cope with the family life he's been given."
- Jeremy Osborne - The Column
"Neil Rogers creates two very different and successful characters. First Sam, the business partner to Tom the father, is the Everyman he should be. [Then] Mr. Halloran as the obnoxious over-the-top jerk, the stereotypical in-law to fear. While both these characters would do well in a sitcom, the opposites are interesting, and Rogers shows his versatility."
- Clyde Berry - The Column
"Rogers' performance was night and day as I watched his transformation from Act One's gruff, maniacal businessman into a man whose eyes had been opened to see Dolly as she wanted to be seen. It not only surprised Dolly but you could see it surprised himself and he was a broken man to find love."
- Bonnie Daman - The Column
"Neil Rogers, as King Arthur commanded the stage well. His intense monologues blew me away. In addition, his deliverance of such lines as 'Actually, there's not much going on today,' showed his prowess in comedic timing, and extracted a nice laugh from the audience."
- Laurie Lindemeier - The Column
"A highlight of this production was Neil Rogers as Luther Billis, attacking this macho-man character lots of bluster and comedy. Rogers was forceful and funny with a strong voice giving the number "Honeybun" lots of sass."
- eSocial World
"The two brothers, Ben and Oscar (played by Doug Fowler and Neil Rogers,
respectively) began their work as stereotypical "good old boy" Southern businessmen, but quickly nuanced their roles to be smarmy, vulnerable, and ruthless. The strength of this production is in the acting. The challenge of producing an older play like this one (it was originally produced in 1939) often lies in making the production relevant to modern audiences. This cast has certainly overcome that obstacle.
Every actor in the production was quite talented, and the way they worked together created a production that gripped the audience tightly and didn't let us go until the end.
- Kristopher Harrison - THE COLUMN
"As Jud Fry, Neil Rogers portrayed this dark character with an evilness and sang with a richness befitting this nasty character."

But the beauty is that the actors never let you see them sweat....everyone goes about their business without looking or sounding like they are dragging around the weight of a masterpiece by probably the greatest playwright who ever lived. Or telling a story that everyone knows by heart and has seen adapted to countless other times and contexts. The success of this endeavor is further aided by an incredibly well-balanced cast....Neil Rogers is especially strong as the patriarch of the Capulet family.
- Punch Shaw - Fort Worth Star Telegram
As a whole, the entire cast is terrific..[with] three transcendent [performances]. Surprisingly good is Neil Rogers as Juliet’s father, Capulet. His performance is big, bold, and full of fire and heart. His scene where he rails at Juliet’s disobedience has touches of Orson Welles.
