JERSEY BOYS (Music Theatre of Connecticut)
“Jeff Raab’s high-amped turn as excited teenager Joe Pesci… possesses a bring-it-on star quality that makes his every on-stage moment knock and rock with individual certainty, excitement and trigger..” – James Ruocco, CT Critics Circle

“Jeff Raab is hilarious as a young Joe Pesci… playing up the shrill, pestering nature of the young boy who can’t help but provide his input no matter how many times DeVito tells him to scram.” – Kiersten Bjork, CT Critics Circle

“There are also strong contributions from… Jeff Raab, playing a very funny Joe Pesci” – Zander Opper, Talkin’ Broadway

“Outstanding antics are rendered by Jeff Raab” – Marlene S. Gaylinn, CT Critics Circle

“Jeff Raab Time Warps as Riff Raff, embodying the strange butler with strong physical choices. Riff Raff’s signature hair and hunched figure are accentuated by Raab’s deliberate gestures and haunting expressions. His rendition of “Time Warp” was electrifying!” – Kiersten Bjork, CT Critics Circle

“Jeff Raab’s scene-stealing, crazed portrayal of Riff Raff… is outrageously campy, wicked and hugely entertaining.” – James Ruocco, CT Critics Circle

THE TEMPEST (Elm Shakespeare Company)

“Jeff Raab as Trinculo and Josh Innerst as Stephano may be the silliest pair” – Lucy Gellman, Arts Council of Greater New Haven

SMOKE ON THE MOUNTAIN (Round Barn Theater)
“Twin brother Dennis (Jeff Raab) is the shy one in the family and had the audience in stitches as he declared, “I’m the boy.” He wants to be a preacher and struggled through the message his mother had written, prior to delivering a fire and brimstone message of his own.” – Jeri Seely Editor in Chief, InkFreeNews.com

THE MUSIC MAN (Westchester Broadway Theater)

12th NIGHT (Libra Theater Company) – New York Innovative Theater Award for “Outstanding Original Music”
“This production also sets itself apart with its use of music, which is beautifully woven into the entire play. The entire cast joins in rousing harmonies and plays instruments, making the whole affair feel at times like a friendly jamboree. Composer Jeff Raab, who also plays Feste, has written some truly lovely tunes to accompany this show, and the skillful use of it throughout only enforces the idea of music as the food of love – essential and fulfilling.” – Kimberly Lew, West Side Rag

“Channeling elements of bluegrass, traditional Irish, and Renaissance genres, musical director and composer Jeff Raab (also playing Feste) has infused the story with rich harmonies and driving rhythms; you’ll find yourself tapping your toe in your seat and maybe even suppressing the urge to do a little jig.” – Erin E. McGuff, Woman About Town

LEND ME A TENOR (White Plains Performing Arts Center)
“Raab is a delight as the weasel of a bellhop trying to insinuate his way into an audience with the great Tito.” – Debra Banerjee, The Scarsdale Inquirer

SEUSSICAL (Westchester Broadway Theater)
“The stories wouldn’t be complete without the Wickersham Brothers causing some trouble. Micah Cowher, Jeff Raab and FaTye Francis are fantastic, as they dance around stage and bother Horton and his speck of dust.” – Michelle Jacoby, The Report

BROADWAY’S RISING STARS (New York Town Hall)
“Jeff Raab flashed show biz razzmatazz as he became the fast-singing huckster putting over the rapid-fire “There’s a Sucker Born Every Minute” from Barnum. He clearly has a great sense of comedy.” – William Wolf, Wolf Entertainment Guide

“Jeff Raab gave his all to the con man anthem, “There Is a Sucker Born Ev’ry Minute”” – Elizabeth Ahlfors, CurtainUp
