Acting

I've been fortunate to play some fantastic roles over the years. 

As an actor, I always strive to make my scene partners better. I enjoy exploring, making big character choices, and trying to be the first one off-book.

"The virtuoso Bretton Reis as Pip... is exceptional. His frame, limbs and fingers register the slightest caution, fear or shame."

"Miller and Reis, both excellent, draw [Thomasina and Septimus'] bond beautifully; they are intimate, peevish like siblings, and wryly conspiratorial."

"Mr. Nice Guy Bretton Reis wouldn’t seem the first choice to perform the diabolical Tony, but he proves perfect.

Reis’ performance is chilling for its believability. This man is a shrewd and cruel schemer, a real psychopath with a creepy, assured smile and unruffled demeanor, which Reis portrays flawlessly."

"...A delightful, strong performance of subtle nuance, and it’s hilarious. The cow bit — there are no words."
