About UIN THE NEWS/REVIEWS

FUNNY GIRL

"Logan Benedict is perfectly cast as the debonair Nick." - Parentmap.com

"Tall, dark, handsome, and mustachioed, Benedict certainly looks the part of a dashing 1920s gentleman. His deep, resonant voice would fit perfectly in one of the evening radio dramas of yore. He never falters, wavers, or stumbles in his performance." - Seattle Weekly

BLOODY, BLOODY ANDREW JACKSON

"Square-jawed, wavy-haired Logan Benedict stars as Jackson, alternately smoldering and sulking, a coiled spring of earnestness and testosterone amid the high-camp storytelling." -The Oregonian

"But this could all be for naught, if the major focus was weak, in the character of Jackson.  But, have no fear, Mr. Benedict is more than up for the task.  His physicality is exactly right for the sexy image that is portrayed.  His voice is exciting and his energy, boundless.  And his acting, in some of the more serious moments toward the end, is quite poignant.  An award-winning performance, if  I ever saw one!" -DennisSparksReviews

"Director Brian Weaver has put together a perfect cast, led by Seattle actor Logan Benedict as a rather petulant, quick-to-anger, quick-to-lament Jackson. He’s got that rock-star appeal, and exudes a vapid, self-centered presence even while he’s charming the crowds. Perfect for a politician who the people love to love. " -Oregonmusicnews.com

"Seattle actor Logan Benedict plays Andrew Jackson like the lead singer of Dashboard Confessional doing a turn on Lonesome Dove—he’s all swagger in his unbuttoned Henley and revolver-cased mike.  -Portland Monthly

RENT

" The 5th Avenue has the robust singers needed to sell this score, led by the power-voiced Morgan, Finley and Benedict. " -The Seattle Times

" As Benny, Logan Benedict earns points for his balanced portrayal of the conflicted rich boy who struggles to still hang onto vestiges of his old friendships " -Talkinbroadway.com

ANNIE GET YOUR GUN

7/1/2012* Logan wins BEST ACTOR in a musical for his portrayal of Frank Butler - 41st Annual Oregon Theatrical Awards Society

"Performances worth noting are Logan Benedict as Frank Butler for his powerful singing..." -The Oregonian

"When Annie falls in love with Frank, played by Logan Benedict, the whole audience falls in love with their relationship because their on-stage chemistry is so strong." -BePortland.com

CAMELOT

"Logan Benedict might well have stepped out of an illustrated book of fairy-tale heroes as Lancelot. One can't imagine the role's creator, a young Robert Goulet, having any better way with Lance's self-worshipping "C'est Moi" or packing more passion into his big love song (and most lasting standard) "If Ever I Would Leave You." -David-Edward Hughes, TalkinBroadway.com

BEAUTY AND THE BEAST
" Gaston, who pursues the beautiful Belle with a stalker's zeal, is conceited, narcissistic and wonderful. He's actually gorgeous and possesses a deep sexy singing voice."-Everett Herald

" Gaston isn't totally lecherous, but rather a delicious combination of comic and conniving."-Everett Herald

" Benedict has truly perfected the art of making egotistical buffoons funny and making us root for him despite ourselves." -Everett Herald
