“The process does not just work for the serious drama. Joshua Castille is a perfect Ernst and he is helped on this by the work of Daniel David Stewart, who voices Ernst and is a whizz on the piano as part of the orchestral landscape. At the moment of Ernst’s seduction by Hanschen (a blonde Andy Mientus), Stewart provides vocal joy to augment the tentative happiness that Castille signs and Mientus demands. It’s a genius moment of pure theatre.” – Stephen Collins – BritishTheatre.comDanielSpringAwakeningBroadway

Daniel received great reviews for his portrayal of Dominic in BELFRY at Malibu Playhouse.
A WOW from StageScene LA –
“Most memorable of all is the brilliant twenty-year-old Stewart, who won a Best Actor Scenie at age seventeen for his work at the Rubicon in “Master Harold”…and the boys. “Expect much much more from this gifted newcomer,” I wrote at the time, prophetic words given Stewart’s heartbreakingly real work in Belfry as a young man with the misfortune to be born before Asperger syndrome became part of our collective lexicon. That Stewart joined the cast less than ten days before opening night makes his multi-layered performance here all the more remarkable.”

Daniel as Cliff in Cabaret at Thousand Oaks Civic Arts Plaza received rave reviews. “As Cliff Bradshaw, the bisexual American novelist who comes to Berlin for inspiration, Daniel Stewart sensitively gives a wonderfully nuanced performance. His high point is on the song “Don’t Go,” which was added to the 1987 revival.”

Stage Scene L.A. Review

Daniel Stewart as Hally in Master Harold

“Stewart’s youth, plus the EXTRAORDINARILY POWERFUL, NUANCED PERFORMANCE he gives add up to ABSOLUTE BELIEVABILITY. The young actor’s CHARISMATIC STAGE PRESENCE is undeniable, as is the truth he brings to the role. DO NOT MISS THIS EXTRAORDINARY PIECE OF    THEATRE!” – Stage Scene L.A.

“Daniel Stewart is A SIGHT TO BEHOLD as Hally; the actor deftly balances the layers of kindness, conflict and rage – it is inspirational to witness a young actor with such DEPTH.”
