He is spot-on. "

A Soldier’s Play
2014 IRNE Award Winner -- Best Actor - Daver Morrison
and Best Ensemble
"Morrison gives a powerful performance as the cool captain who never loses his head..."
Beverly Creasey -- Boston Arts Review
"Daver Morrison plays the Mr. Tibbs-like Captain Davenport with aplomb."
Kay Bourne -- EDGE, Boston
"Black history buffs will thrill to Roxbury Repertory Theater’s edge-of-the-seat dramatization of Charles Fuller’s "A Soldier’s Play." Like a time machine, the perfectly calibrated production shoots you back to 1944 at the U.S. Army’s Fort Neal situated outside a small Louisiana town in the Jim Crow South.

“The Whipping Man”
- Clarence Brown Theatre
Reconstruction: Clarence Brown Unleashes 'The Whipping Man'
By George Logan
"... Simon is played with authoritarian gravitas by Daver Morrison.."
" This production could hardly be better. More than some other
productions, this play points out the prevailing urgency of live
drama over cinema. You start thinking American audiences are
unshockable. But several times, at the Carousel, arranged for this
production in an intimate semicircle, I heard gasps, as if audience
members believed, if only for a second, that what they were witnessing
was real, and now. It’s so perfectly presented that I suspect a large
majority of each audience wouldn’t mind seeing it again the next night."
