2008 NYMF AWARD FOR EXCELLENCE: Outstanding Individual Performance

Talkin' Broadway 2008 Summer Theatre Festival Citation: Outstanding Actor (Male)

Patrick Lee - Outstanding Performances of 2008
"In Love Jerry, at NYMF, Harris Doran and Donna Lynne Champlin stunned with the intensity and truthfulness of their emotionally raw performances."


"Doran is a revelation, committing fearlessly to "Move Closer," a harrowingly honest song. The cast give committed, fiercely brave performances."
- Patrick Lee, Theatermania

"Doran never condescends to or judges Jerry, but unlocks all the pent-up longing and simmering loneliness that made him who he is; he also refuses to settle for easy answers, guarding certain game-changing secrets (the true nature of Jerry's sexuality chief among them) with a suffocating intensity."
- Matthew Murray, Talkin' Broadway

"...both Arbogast and Doran are strong performers. Doran, in particular, has a little-boy appeal that make his dangerous undertones feel even more shocking."
- Julia Furay, CurtainUp

"[A] moving performance from Harris Doran as the tormented Jerry."
- Ron Cohen, Backstage

"Harris Doran is outstanding at capturing the tortured heart of Jerry. Doran's portrayal is honest and he does a great job playing such a complex character. He moves easily from rational adult to the childlike qualities of someone with emotional problems. Doran has a beautiful voice and I was really moved by him in the songs "I Can Teach You" and "Love/Poison."
- Roger Nasser,
