Fagin in OLIVER!

“Ron Wisniski, as the scoundrel thief Fagin, stole the audience’s heart. Wisniski played Fagin with humor and pathos. In spite of teaching orphan children to steal (and in turn stealing from them), he managed to make Fagin sympathetic. We were rooting for him.  His wildly entertaining ‘Reviewing the Situation’ was one of the shining moments of the night.”

Elaine Hunt

--The Gold Country Times

“Ron Wisniski plays the gang leader Fagin perfectly.”

Saunthy Nicolson-Singh

--The Appeal--Democrat

“Veteran actor Ron Wisniski has a great time as the leader of a band of lost boys whom he teaches to pick pockets...He’s a first-rate Fagin.”

Bev Sykes

--The Davis Enterprise

Boris Kolenkhov in YOU CAN’T TAKE IT WITH YOU

“Ron Wisniski’s Kolenkhov, the crazy Russian, is a tower of comic precision, every gesture carved in attitude.”

Christopher Rawson

--Pittsburgh Post--Gazette

“Singling out anyone from the rest of the cast is almost unfair since all are fabulous but Ron Wisniski performs a magic act as ballet teacher Boris—caricature, yes, but walking that fine line to make it all incredibly funny.”

Anna Rosenstein

--In Pittsburgh

Lady Enid and Nicodemus in


“The gifted, tireless actors (Ron Wisniski and Patrick Frederic) change costumes and characters with astonishing speed and ability.  They revel in every pun, every punchline that’s older than those Egyptian tombs, every inspired bit of wordplay and free association.  They make The Mystery of Irma Vep a giddy, joyous theatrical experience for all ages.”

Sharon Johnson

--Harrisburg Patriot--News

“Frederic and Wisniski throw themselves into all their personae, and ham it up to a fare thee well...rollicking good fun.”

D’Arcy Charney

--The Carlisle Sentinel

Ron Wisniski

Ziegfeld in FUNNY GIRL

“Ron Wisniski is superb as the stern, poker-faced Flo Ziegfeld.”

Don Grigware


“Ron Wisniski is perfect as the imperious Florenz Ziegfeld.”

Saunthy Nicolson-Singh

--The Appeal--Democrat

Horace Vandergelder in HELLO, DOLLY!

“Ron Wisniski plays Horace Vandergelder with brilliant comic timing and by the end of the play, believably turns his character from a ‘hard as nails’ miser to a subdued bachelor happy to have Dolly brighten his days.”

Melissa Tucker

--Arkansas Democrat--Gazette Sync Weekly

Roger DeBris and Franz Liebkind in


“The scene where Bialystock and Bloom recruit director Roger DeBris was delightful. DeBris (Ron Wisniski) appears in a glittering gown and his staff led by Carmen Ghia (Jeffrey C. Wolf) parody sexual stereotypes with their outrageously flamboyant performances.  Wisniski’s performance may have been the funniest of the evening, but Wolf may have set records for swishing.”

Eric Crump

--The Democrat--News

“When we first see Liebkind, Wisniski just looks so doggoned nutty that we start laughing before he opens his mouth.  A skilled comic actor, Wisniski’s every moment on stage is energetic and engaged and funny as heck.”

Pam Harbaugh

--Florida Today

Dennis’ Mother, Sir Bedevere, and Concorde in SPAMALOT

“The American regional premiere of the Broadway comedy phenomenon...Spamalot wants nothing more than to be pure comic irreverence and this production succeeds completely.”

Marcus Crowder

--The Sacramento Bee

Marcus Lycus in


“Ron Wisniski is hilarious as the easy to get along with procurer Marcus Lycus.”

Susan Hood

--The Hartford Courant

“Adam Heller’s Pseudolus heads the inspired team of clowns, which includes a leering, squinty-eyed David Wohl as Senex, the hot-to-trot husband; a rouged, lip-smacking Ron Wisniski as Marcus Lycus, the greedy pimp; and a fluttery John Scherer as the wimpy servant Hysterium.  When these four line up to sing ‘Everybody Ought to Have a Maid’, Mr. Sondheim’s ode to the traditional place of female servants in the literature of concupiscence, even the most right-thinking feminists will find themselves unable to disagree.”

Sylviane Gold

--The New York Times

“Ron Wisniski brings his trademark double-take high energy and comic know-how to his portrayal of brothel owner Marcus Lycus.”

Pam Harbaugh

--Florida Today

“Ron Wisniski as ‘merchant of love’ Marcus Lycus is screamingly funny just stepping on stage.”

Barbara Yoresh

--Vero Beach Newsweekly

Buffalo Bill in ANNIE GET YOUR GUN

“A huge standout is Ron Wisniski as Buffalo Bill.  Wisniski has been great in many roles the last several Music Circus seasons, but this could be his best performance yet.”

Bill Burgua

--Sacramento Press

“The always satisfying Ron Wisniski is a bombastic Buffalo Bill, bigger than life as he struggles to find a way to keep his show in the black.”

Bev Sykes

--The Davis Enterprise

Coach Van Buren in


“Daniel Goldstein, who has directed with broad strokes, fields an engaging, high-kicking team of stumblebum Red Sox.  They are under the crusty leadership of Ron Wisniski’s endearing manager; his pre-coaching career was, evidently, spent playing minor league schtickball.”

Sylviane Gold

--The New York Times

The affable Red Sox players are being cheered on by Coach Van Buren; played as a broadly comedic, high-voltage team leader by one of our favorite Goodspeed actors, Ron Wisniski.  His singing of the pep-rally anthem Heart leads to a highly successful locker-room production number.”

Tony Schillaci

--Hartford Examiner

Ron Wisniski is a comic gem as Coach Van Buren.

His facial expressions alone spark howls from the audience.”

Stu Brown

--WRTC-FM Hartford

Senex in


“Frank Ferrante plays Pseudolus, the scheming Roman slave...Not only is Mr. Ferrante a marvelous performer, but he’s also staged ‘A Funny Thing Happened’ with explosive comic punch, and he’s put together a cast of old pros who understand the style as well as he does.  Ron Wisniski, who plays Senex, the victim of his skullduggery, could just as easily have slipped into Mr. Ferrante’s toga and made an equally strong impression.  The fact that this is self-evidently not a one-man show is a big part of what makes it so good.”

Terry Teachout

--The Wall Street Journal

Herr Schultz in CABARET

“The romance between the fatalistic boarding house owner Fraulein Schneider (Mary Gordon Murray) and hopeful Jewish grocer Herr Schultz (Ron Wisniski) embodies the tragic arc Cabaret ultimately takes.  Murray and Wisniski are beautifully voiced and heartfelt throughout.”

Marcus Crowder

--The Sacramento Bee

“Mary Gordon Murray and Ron Wisniski have some lovely moments together, particularly the beautiful duet ‘Married’.  Murray is simply outstanding...Wisniski is a regular at Music Circus and it is clear why--he can play any role.  You can’t help falling in love with this Herr Schultz, who mixes dignity with deep sorrow.”
