Reviews

from FEATURING LORETTA
 
“…Charlie Kranz as Mike with an ear-to-ear shark grin is hilarious. He is a loser, stuck at the bottom of his malodorous heap, and he can’t do anything right.”

– Gerry Colgan,   The Irish Times

“Michael, played with wonderful panache by Charlie Kranz… complete with greasy ponytail… endlessly hysterical…deftly sleazy… ”

– Beth Newhall,  Irish Theatre Magazine

 

from SWIMMING WITH SHARKS

“As Buddy Ackerman… Charlie Kranz is such a creature…Part Vincent Gallo, part David Geffen, Kranz’s appalling, unredeemed character is the best thing…”

– Michael Ross,  The Sunday Times

“The wolfish Buddy is a vicious, self-serving monster… thoroughly engrossing… the acting, notably by Mark Van Den Bergh (Guy) and Charlie Kranz (Buddy), is strong and convincing…”

– Gerry Colgan,  The Irish Times

 

from THE LARAMIE PROJECT

“If one had to single out anybody, Charlie Kranz’s portrayal of Matthew Shepard’s father was imbued with much poignancy; it demanded nothing but the utmost attention from the audience.”

– James McMahon,  RTÉ Guide

 

from DEATH OF A SALESWOMAN

“The characters and situations are so surreal at times that the film has a Twin Peaks feel to it. Fans of David Lynch will feel a certain familiarity with the odd ensemble cast and the strange FBI agent (Charlie Kranz), who literally sniffs out lies.”

– Kevin Wohler,  FilmGuru.net

 

from CAT LAUGHS INTERNATIONAL IMPROV

“Undoubtedly the best gig that I attended was the ‘International Improv’ with a line up that included Steve Frost, Andy Smart, Paul Tylak, Tara Flynn and Charlie Kranz. This was off the cuff comedy that was refreshingly simple, absolutely hilarious, had minimal bad language, and is certainly one to book next year without hesitation.”

– Deirdre O’Reilly,  Kilkenny Advertiser
