Saxon as Albert Kroll is both heartbreaking and gripping. Catherine Usher, The Stage
FRANKIE AND JOHNNY IN THE CLAIR DE LUNE
The evening that I spent with McGillis and Saxon's Frankie and Johnny was deeply moving and funny at the same time. Their gritty portrayals meant the audience was not dazzled by the glamour of Hollywood but was gently bathed in the afterglow of a well rounded and satisfying performance. BBC Radio Suffolk
Rolf Saxon conveys the desperation of a middle aged man who thinks he has found what he wants with an uncomfortable intensity . . . an exceptional performance from Saxon. Alex Clark, whatsonstage.com
The hugely charismatic Rolf Saxon is magnificent as the besotted ex con divorcee so desperate to embrace the burgeoning chemistry he feels is developing so rapidly between them. His immense stage presence never faltering as the relationship begins to unfold. Jill Lawrie
Beautifully crafted ... Saxon’s utterly convincing Johnny is an ex-con who keeps a complete works of Shakespeare in his locker. Jane McKell
San Francisco, TheatreWorks
Saxon gives us a real sense of a warm and wonderful parent but also embodies the passion of Zionism without apology or caricature. Jeanie Forte Smith, PA Weekly
. . . played with heart and warmth by Rolf Saxon. Kedar K. Adour, Theater World Internet Magazine

THE FLOATING LIGHT BULB
San Francisco, Traveling Jewish Theatre
Outstanding is Rolf Saxon as Jerry. . . Richard Connema, talkinbroadway.com
Rolf Saxon manages to turn Jerry . . . into a sweet if lonely middle-aged guy with a genuine soft spot for the maladjusted family. The actor's dancing eyes and broad smile are magnetizing: He looks like everyone's favorite uncle. Chloe Veltman
It is rare to find an actor with the gift of enabling us to enter his world . . . a superb performance.
Manchester Evening News
But special mention must surely go to Rolf Saxon (Victor) for a spellbinding performance as the dutiful civil servant who rises above his own frustration to be the honorable person we all wish we could be. This is theatre at its finest. Richard Turner, BBC Manchester
Rolf Saxon is simply spellbinding as Victor. This is an actor unafraid to allow the audience to see his thought process and we hang on every word. This is theatre at its best. Natalie Anglesey
LAUGHTER ON THE 23D FLOOR
London, West End(European Premiere)
. . . more successful gags than you have any right to expect. The fact that Rolf Saxon looks like Phil Silvers helps, but it's not just that . . . his timing, his ease and his genuine physicality . . . hits pay dirt.
David Benedict, The Independent
Gene Wilder ... a master class of technique, timing and in our view, charm . . . Rolf Saxon runs Wilder a close second in this very American comedy. The Mail.
BLUES FOR MR. CHARLIE
London, Tricycle Theatre
. . . the excellent Rolf Saxon. Paul Taylor, The Independent
The large cast features breathtakingly strong performances, most notably Rolf Saxon as the liberal white journalist Parnell James . . . Elizabeth Mahoney, The Guardian
Though a magnificent ensemble piece . . . the play really belongs to Rolf Saxon and Ray Shell, both seasoned performers who here land roles that fit them like gloves. Shell brings a worldly dignity to the diplomatic preacher Meridian Henry that is matched by the world-weariness of Saxon’s well-meaning newsman Parnell James. Nick Awde
A most ambiguous protagonist, the only character who seems to be wholly at ease both among the blacks and among the whites - and yet mistrusted by both; Rolf Saxon portrays Parnell effortlessly, bringing out an analogy with the liberal powers of today as well as several complex questions.
Naomi Goulder, Times Literary Supplement
DINNER WITH FRIENDS
London, Hampstead Theatre(European Premiere)
Meanwhile, Rolf Saxon, at the emotional core of the play as the placid but troubled Gabe, is simply superb. Simon Edge, The Daily Express
I am also full of admiration for Rolf Saxon. He has a no nonsense way of acting; no glamour, no flash. You only realise your heart is more with him than any other character when, everyone else off stage, alone, he becomes - without doing a single thing - vulnerable, melancholy, deeply touching. The Financial Times
Lucid, beautifully acted, Saxon plays Gabe with a delightful, geekish quality while also letting you see he isn't immune to moral cowardice.Charles Spencer, The Daily Telegraph
It is also stunningly played . . . especially Rolf Saxon. Punch
Simon Curtis' production is beautifully acted not least by Saxon. I'll remember them all but his troubled, helpless face will stay with me for months.Benedict Nightingale, The Times
JERRY SPRINGER – THE OPERA
Rolf Saxon is an excellent Jerry [Springer], much because – like Jerry – he never takes centre stage but allows the foreground to be occupied by the victims. Natalie Littlewood Daily Info, Oxford
Rolf Saxon . . . urbane and charming, ever distancing himself from the mayhem he creates (or does he?).
