“Bruce Dow, an actor whose spiritual stature grows by cubits.”
National Post

“The ever-inventive Dow has to be a national treasure.”
Toronto Star

“Shakespearean comedy tends to flourish at Stratford, 
in part because it is often entrusted to veterans like Mr. Dow.”

New York Times

“… a soaring voice, his comic skills are 
leavened by a gentle sincerity.”

Variety
