EVeRYBODY'S TALKIN' ABOUT KENNEY
"What has impressed me... throughout all of the work we have done is the focus Kenney always places on the story the play presents. He listens carefully to what I believe a scene is trying to display and sets his goals in pursuit of that vision. He is not afraid to disagree, but he never makes light of the primary responsibility of the show to tell a story."
"[Kenney's] enthusiasm and dedication to the performing arts is contagious, and he carries with him such tremendous knowledge on all aspects of theater. Whether on-stage or off, from leading production teams to envisioning what 'could be' I would highly recommend him"
“Kenney is a great collaborator a passionate musical director - and a truthful and inventive actor.”
New Harmony Theatre
& Junior Company
"In addition to becoming a dear friend, Kenney has proven to be a trusted collaborator. Early, ready to work and about the art is how he shows up on the regular. And it doesn't hurt that he can do some of EVERYTHING (act, sing, dance, play multiple instruments, choreograph, direct, teach, produce, design, and support with serious tech/IT skills). I don't call him my show husband for nothin’!"
