A consummate showman himself, Todd displays a vast array of talents here. He sings (of course), does impressions (including Al Jolson and George Burns) and projects an easy charisma with his depiction of Darin.... full review

THE LEGEND OF BOBBY DARIN: AN UNAUTHORIZED AUTOBIOGRAPGHY (Platinum Medal) At first glance Cliff Todd comes across as the quiet, unassuming sort. Hardly the guy you’d think of in connection with Bobby Darin, the brash crooner of “Splish Splash” and “Mack the Knife” fame, who died tragically young at 37. But at the start of this loving bio-play of the singer, Todd is suddenly gone. There in his place is Bobby. Todd captures Darin’s singing style and mannerisms perfectly, and under Miles Chapman’s adroit direction, the transformation is stunning. My wife who is considerably younger than me wasn’t familiar with Bobby Darin. So she watched some videos on YouTube. She thought Cliff made a better Darin. For more of my reivews of the Ho... full review

This excellent show displays both the gifts of the actor-performer Cliff Todd and the director, Miles Chapman. In a miraculously tight and bracing hour, we experience the life, personality and talents of Bobby Darin, whose musical career straddled 1950s rock 'n roll, 1960s pop, early 1970s contemplative pop and standards from earlier decades. Todd is both a gifted vocalist and actor and the taut script grips us with its frankness and humor and never lets go. Well worth seeing!... full review
