JAMES DAVIS

**THEATRE WORLD AWARD winner **

for his portrayal as Will Parker in

OKLAHOMA! on Broadway

"Mr. Davis's deliciously dumb Will emanates a blissful endorphin haze."

Ben Brantley, New York Times

"Even the comic-relief couple...are rejuvenated...thanks to...James Davis's ebullient sex appeal."

Elisabeth Vincentelli, The New Yorker

"It's remarkable actors - especially...James Davis's ebullient, a-couple-knots-short-of-a-lasso Will Parker - feel loose, confident, and playful..." 

Sara Holdren, Vulture Magazine

"...the sweetly naive and thoroughly besotted Will Parker

(a hilariously dim-witted James Davis)."

Charles Isherwood, Broadway News

"It doesn't hurt that both Davis and Brill are so hilarious. Will (James Davis) comes on all manly, pumped up from a recent Kansas City trip and a big win on the rodeo circuit, but struggling to stay aboard the hedonistic roller coaster that is Ado Anne. His goofy dance moves are bliss."

David Rooney, The Hollywood Reporter

St. Louis actor makes his Broadway debut

Appearing on Broadway is pretty great according to James Davis, a young actor from St. Louis. He's making his Broadway debut in the new production of John Guare's "The House of Blue Leaves."

St. Louis Post-Dispatch

This is Talk of the Nation. I'm Lynn Neary in Washington sitting in for Neal Conan. And now, as we learn in high school English class, Shakespeare plays were all-male affairs during his day, and that means Juliet, one of his greatest female characters, was actually written for a boy.
