The Servant of Two Masters - Pacific Repertory Theatre
...Cassidy Brown delivers a madcap virtuoso performance as the hungry servant Truffaldino, who juggles two bosses to secure food and extra wages…And again, Brown turns in a sensational performance as Truffaldino, worth the price of admission alone.

The Winter's Tale - Pacific Repertory Theatre
Critics consider Autolycus to be one of Shakespeare's greatest clowns, and Cassidy Brown's enactment of the role was all of that. Watching him remove a man's clothing as he speaks on stage was incredible.

The Death of Meyerhold - Shotgun Players
A magnetic Cassidy Brown anchors the show as a fervent, deeply engaged, brooding, distant, tender and autocratic Meyerhold, as the story moves from tsarist repression through revolutionary idealism to Stalinist terror.
Robert Hurwitt, SF Chronicle
Cassidy Brown is sensitive, flowing, and charismatic as Meyerhold.
Michael Scott Moore, SF Weekly
The Underpants - Center Rep
My favorite is Cassidy Brown playing Cohen (with a K) who recognizes vanity and jealously of it all and receives applause when he finally declares to Theo “That’s Cohen with a C!”
Kedar Adour, For All Events
Brown, Johnson and Evan Boomer as Klinglehoff are designed, somehow, as comic relief in this jungle of laughter, do their jobs and much more, starting with their bizarre costumes, their manner, their odd physicality and a host of other quirks that have you laughing before they open their mouths.

The Odd Couple - Willows Theatre
Cassidy (Brown), on the other hand, brings another sort of humanity to his role. His Felix isn't the least bit prissy. Instead, the character is a mouse that occasionally roars. Think of him as a sort of citified Barney Fife, who navigates the mean streets of New York and packs a sauce pan rather than a bullet…Both performances are tiny masterworks.

Game On - San Jose Rep
Cassidy Brown is outstanding as a mild middle-class white man performing a rap song about climate change, complete with hilarious whale impersonation.
Robert Hurwitt, SF Chronicle
Brown almost steals the show with his hilarious rap poem, delighting both us and his fictional audience.
Jeanie K. Smith, Talkin’ Broadway
Hunter Gatherers - Capital Stage
As Richard, Brown is a hilarious but subtle parody of the guy who gets the attention. He’s a pansexual, energetic ball of confusion with artistic pretensions... Brown keeps his character on the edge, which allows him to be funny rather than frightening, and it’s a surprisingly delicate performance.
Kel Munger, Sacramento News and Review
Complete History of America (abridged) - Marin Shakespeare Company
Brown has a winning sense of incredulous dignity and a knack for priceless impersonations.
Sam Hurwitt, Marin Independent Journal
Their energy, comic timing and versatility are amazing and each gets their turn in the limelight. Cassidy Brown can be considered the ‘straight man’ that is necessary for any vaudevillian act and he is an excellent match and foil for the others.

The Loudest Man on Earth - Theatreworks
(Cassidy) Brown and Mia Tagano, who between them play 21 parts, are amazing. There are often only seconds between character changes for them, and yet when each new character emerges, they are there, whole cloth. There were times I completely forgot it was only the two of them.

The 39 Steps - Pacific Repertory Theatre
Brown makes a rib-tickling leading man, striking heroic poses and lending his splendid acting talents generously to Hannay’s serial predicaments.
Monterey Herald, Barbara Rose Shuler
The 39 Steps - San Jose Stage Company
Brown... steps up to the Richard role with rubber-limbed, understated charm -- kind of a cross between Bertie Wooster and Buster Keaton -- gingerly freeing himself from Annabella, running across the tops of train cars, and dangling from the aforementioned bridge while spouting clever bon mots.
Georgia Rowe, San Jose Mercury News
Distracted - TheatreWorks
In the supporting cast, Brown sinks his comic chops into a series of doctors, and he seems to relish breaking the fourth wall as an actor who feels compelled to put in a good word for Ritalin.

Othello- Marin Shakespeare Company
Othello’s malevolent officer , Iago (the witty and mesmerizing Cassidy Brown), admits, “I am not what I am”(I.1, 65). Shakespeare artfully exposes the villain’s Machiavellian machinations. Cassidy Brown bursts with Iago’s wit, energy, and humor. He makes music with every syllable of Iago’s robust and sexual soliloquies. Cassidy Brown’s self-aware Iago cleverly dissects other people’s errors to manipulate them all, step by step, for his own amusement.
Cassidy Brown draws us subtly into the labyrinth of Iago’s devious schemes. And most potently, the interaction between Cassidy’s Iago and Dameion’s Othello rings true to life. Director Currier uses an continually interrupted fencing scene to highlight the intrusions of Othello’s doubts. Iago casts his sly, silky threads and wraps up the hero like a fly in his web.
