Opportunity Rocks!

Actor, co-writer, The Public House Theater

Recommended, Choose Chicago

Ott and Duff are brilliant, conversational writers and calm and convincing on stage. [They] seamlessly bounce back and forth between characters, providing a glimpse at [their] full range of acting talent. This is the second show I’ve seen with Greg Ott and he has continued to impress me.

Example


Chris Gaines in… The Life of Garth Brooks

Actor, writer, and co-director, Annoyance Theater

☆ ☆ ☆ out of ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆, Chicago Tribune

Inspired by the elaborate backstory Brooks created for Gaines, Ott (who stars as the Gaines/Brooks amalgam) and co-director Joe Avella instill in their cast a madcap sense of purpose, including a couple of awesomely faux maudlin flashbacks of father-son bonding.

Recommended, Chicago Reader

Greg Ott’s well-constructed parody turns that wonky era on its head, featuring Gaines as the “biggest rock star on the planet on the eve of the new millennium,” who becomes dissatisfied with his career and turns to country music. Chock-full of 90s references like Tamagotchis, Judge Ito, and unlikely sex symbol Chelsea Clinton, the show is a nostalgic romp into a slower (i.e., dial-up) time.

Example


OJ Didn’t Do It: What Really Happened

Actor, co-writer, and co-director, The Public House Theater

Recommended, Choose Chicago

A very smart, witty, well-written and well-directed show. “OJ Didn’t Do It” is a dark and surprising murder mystery satire and breaks the mold of the average comedy show. It’s weird to say, but I left feeling very satisfied. There was nothing more I could have asked for from this production.

Example


Autobahn

Actor, FAIRLANE THEATER CO.

Recommended, Chicago Reader

It’s a psychologically complex evening, and director Aaron Henrickson’s discriminating, understated cast tease out every nuance. Nearly everything in this two-hour Fairlane Theatre production falls gracefully in place.
