"Ian Knauer is spot on as the clueless but kindhearted Lord Evelyn, a reserved Englishman who mangles the American idioms he tries hard to imitate. Mr. Knauer also executes one of the brightest bits of Jason Wise's lively choreography while recalling an indiscretion from his past in 'The Gypsy in Me.'"
AILEEN JACOBSON, NY TIMES
"Ian Knauer's playing the very British Lord Oakleigh is sidesplittingly funny in his rendition of "The Gypsy In Me" as he tangos across the stage in John Cleese fashion. Oh, this was funny!"
BOBBY FRANKLIN, BOXING OVER BROADWAY
"Both Ian Knauer as Roger Debris, and Christopher Sloan as Carmen Ghia will leave you crying with laughter at their fabulous performances. These two make some of the best scenes in the show."
NY THEATRE GUIDE
"Ian Knauer is as clean-cut, handsome, and domineering as you'd expect Tom Buchanan to be. He has a tremendous presence through which you almost physically feel and flinch at the bile of his fevered conservatism, jealousy, and hypocrisy."
WHAT'S PEEN SEEN?, LONDON
"the suave Mick Hamilton (Ian Knauer), whose true character as an evil omnipotent puppeteer was slowly uncovered with each scene"
THE UPCOMING, LONDON
"The stand-out performances are undoubtedly those of Andy Hockley and Ian Knauer. They both have commanding stage presences. Knauer's unremittingly evil Demon King fills the stage whenever he appears, moving with an easy grace. He also boasts the finest singing voice in the company."
THE PUBIC REVIEWS, COVENTRY
"As for Billy Flynn, Ian Knauer oozes insincerity from every pore, smiles to blind the audience and gives us every nuance of the shyster lawyer."
VICTOR HALLETT, THE STAGE, LONDON
"Musically, the high point of 'By Jeeves' is a lilting ballad, 'Half A Moment,' which is fetchingly sung by Emily Loesser and Ian Knauer."
HOWARD KISSEL, DAILY NEWS
"Ian Knauer plays Frank Butler, Oakley's romantic interest. His tall, slender good looks accompany a magnificent, heroic voice in the operetta tradition. Knauer lights up the stage with his gleaming smile and sexy swagger, and all of the women - including Annie - are immediately under his spell."
LOUISE LEWIS, THE ISLAND PACKET
"There's a secondary romance between a more lightweight couple, Will Parker and Ado Annie. These roles are so engagingly played by Ian Knauer and Amy Dolan that the comic relief almost steals the show."
JACQUES LE SOURD, THE JOURNAL NEWS
"Knauer, another fine dancer, has an easygoing presence that turns sexy in 'I'm A Gigolo,' comic in 'Mack The Black,' and plaintive in 'Love For Sale.'"
JUDY RICHTER, BACK STAGE WEST / DRAMA-LOGUE
"Knauer's villain, La Contessa's arch stepbrother, Baron Rivar, is a droll, sinister, seductive presence. Like all the best villains, Knauer would make a plausible hero. And like all the best villains, he puts the audience on his side even when he is at his most villainous."
DAVID REILLY, THE POST STANDARD
"Ian Knauer sets off Peggy's naivete with his polished, almost slick performance as tenor Billy Lawlor. Aided by the very able male ensemble dancers, Knauer makes audiences forget the girls, even while singing 'you go to see those beautiful dames.'"
KATE LUCE ANGELL, PITTSBURGH POST-GAZETTE
"Ian Knauer strikes the proper balance of ego and self-satire as endearingly brash performer Billy Lawlor."
ALICE T. CARTER, PITTSBURGH TRIBUNE
"As Cable, Knauer is perfect. He lends Cable such humanity, as though life hasn't always been easy, but he still has hope. His heart is truly worn on his sleeve when he sings 'Younger Than Springtime' to his darling Liat."
RHONDA GILLESPIE, THE DOMINION POST
