A SHAYNA MAIDEL

"Conneticut Critics Circle: A Shayna Madel – Review by Brooks Appelbaum"

"Schmidt and Rafala have gorgeous chemistry, and their games of teasing and chasing each other, rolling on the sofa like kittens, and then finding that their friendship has deepened into love show us the magic they once had."

 

"Talkin' Broadway Regional Reviews: Connecticut & The Berkshires"

"Particularly outstanding is Alex Rafala as Duvid, Luisa's husband, who was separated from her during the Holocaust and whom Luisa spends the entire play searching for."

"From the Desk of Jim R, Take 2, Column 218, A Review: 'A Shayna Maidel' (Playhouse on Park)"

Alex Rafala, as Duvid Pechenik, brings depth, feeling and nuance to his portrayal of Lusia's beloved husband.


 

ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO'S NEST

"BWW Review: ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO'S NEST at Playhouse On Park"

"There are solid performances from the entire cast, with a few key standouts. Worth noting is Alex Rafala's tortured Billy Bibbitt, who is the most believable of the bunch. His speech impediment and the way he manifests Billy's fears both physically and verbally is a thrill to watch."

"From the Desk of Jim R, Take 2, Column 115, A Review: 'One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest' (Playhouse on Park)"

"As the shy, often misunderstood Billy Bibbitt, Alex Rafala offers a perfectly honed, honest portrayal of a young man, unable to face the world, who, sadly chooses suicide as the final escape."

"Talkin' Broadway Regional Reviews: Connecticut and the Berkshires"

"Each member of the cast makes his or her own individual mark in the show, with especially touching work by Alex Rafala, as Billy Bibbit."

THE DIARY OF ANNE FRANK

"Talkin' Broadway Regional Reviews: Connecticut and The Berkshires"

"As their son Peter, Alex Rafala is absolutely ideal and, like Isabelle Barbier's Anne, he seems to undergo a real change during the course of the play, with the two young performers bringing a welcome sense of romance to the show."

 

"BWW Review: THE DIARY OF ANNE FRANK at Playhouse on Park"

"Speaking of the romance, the scenes between Ms. Barbier and Mr. Rafala are beacons of light in a dark time, illustrating that even in the worst of times, love can survive (and thrive)."

"'The Diary of Anne Frank' Is Getting Moving Production at Playhouse on Park"

"Alex Rafala is right on as the teenage boy, Peter..."

 

SNAKE EYES

"HAMILTON's Nik Walker to Headline Staged Reading of SNAKE EYES"

FAREWELL OLD STRINGY

"An Inspired Four Years" 

 

"'Farewell Old Stringy' Debuts Sunday" 

 

"'Farewell Old Stringy' lacks nothing but funds" 

AN ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE

"Theater review: University of Virginia Department of Drama's 'An Enemy of the People'" 

"One of the best performances in the show comes from third-year student Alex Rafala as the leading member of the 'compact majority' of citizens."
