REVIEWS

"Jack Tynan totally nails the asshole aspect of his lead character Stephen. Never once in these entire chain of events do you feel any empathy for the way consequences turn out for this supposedly charismatic and brilliant assistant campaign manager. Tynan's confession and termination scenes (with the wonderful Geoffrey Lower as Paul, Stephen's boss) really pop and sizzle, with their tension and their clashing confrontation rating as the drama's highlights. Matching those two scenes with the same intensity, but with much more subtle underplaying by the powerful Andy Umberger as the competing campaign manager Tom; Tynan and Umberger match wits and reasoning as the reversal of who's on top intriguingly play out in their first and third very satisfying pivotal scenes together." - Gil Kaan


"As Steve, Tynan proves a dynamic stage presence with leading man chops opposite Los Angeles stage-and-screen vet Lower’s more experienced (though no less calculating) Paul, and just wait till the second act when sparks between the colleagues-turned-adversaries fly[...] Forget the misguided film version, retitled The Ides Of March, Farragut North on stage at the Odyssey is the real deal." - Steven Stanley


"Jack Tynan confidently portrays Stephen. With his good looks, sharp communication skills and political savvy, Tynan makes it easy for us to believe that Stephen cannot fail. [...] Farrugut North is compelling theater that is perhaps more relevant in today’s world than when it was first created. This slick production does the story proud." - Peter Foldy


"Tynan strikes the right balance as an equal parts charming and dislikable protagonist. He easily wields a smug what’s-in-it-for-me sensibility, whether in the backroom or the bedroom. As the play progresses, his boyish charm is usurped by his increasingly despicable behavior." - Dana Martin


"The cast is led by Jack Tynan as Stephen Bellamy, who brings an earnest and vulnerable performance as a campaign coordinator caught in a dangerous web of political gamesmanship and egos." - Matthew Robinson


"Tynan inhabits his role convincingly, with his mobile phone glued to his ear, multitasking his way through a thousand details of a nascent presidential primary campaign." - David Maurer


Voted "Outstanding Actor in a Leading Role in a Play" for 'Farragut North' at the Ridgefield Theater Barn - The 2017 OnStage Theatre Awards - CT/NY Region.


"On stage throughout the entire play, Jack Tynan gives a powerhouse, pitch perfect performance. He never misses a beat throughout reams of fast-paced dialogue he delivers flawlessly. He has captured this character." - Beth Young"


"Jack Tynan delivers a strong performance as the public relations prodigy Stephen, easily capturing the character’s development as desperation pits career survival against personal ideals." - Adam Horvath
