Critical Response

“Some of the best performances in the production are in smaller roles. Jason Asprey is a nasal, dangerously depressive Don John, but equally arresting is the strong, surly Borachio of Johnny Lee Davenport, who at one point flicks open a nasty stiletto to spear the olive in his martini.”
—Carolyn Clay, Boston Phoenix (June 13-19, 2003)

“Asprey as Don John, Johnny Lee Davenport as Borachio, and Mel Cobb as Antonio are noteworthy.”
—Ed Siegel, Boston Globe (July 4, 2003)

“[Don Juan’s] henchman Borachio is played by the formidable Johnny Lee Davenport, who proves his comic skills when he blithely spears a martini olive with his switchblade.”
—Terry Byrne, Boston Herald (July 24, 2003)
