ATLANTA THEATER FANS REVIEW:
"...but it is Patrick Boyd as Carmen Ghia, DeBris’s “common law assistant,” who steals the show and draws the most laughs from the audience."
ARTS ATLANTA REVIEW
"...and Patrick Boyd as Carmen, Roger’s common-law partner. The actor has a terrific deadpan delivery (“Can I take your coat, hat and swastikas?” he asks when Max and Leo come for a visit) and a fluttering hand that deserves its own sitcom."
ATLANTA InTOWN: Review
"Patrick Boyd (Carmen Ghia) and the entire huge cast are first rate."
Patrick wins BEST ACTOR IN A MUSICAL - 2011 Broadwayworld.com FLORIDA AWARDS for his portrayal of Leo Bloom in "THE PRODUCERS" at the Riverside Theatre, Vero Beach, Florida.
2011 GYPSY OF THE YEAR COMPETITION
December 5th and 6th, 2011, I had the honor of dancing in the opening number of the 2011 GYPSY OF THE YEAR COMPETITION BENEFIT for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS. The original 1972 Broadway cast of "GREASE!" was reunited to celebrate their 40th Anniversary. For me it marked 18 years that I began rehearsals for what was my first Broadway show. It was a magical experience!
