Theater for a New Audience, 2016

★★★★ The Servant of Two Masters serves a tasty platter of commedia dell’arte.
A hilariously babyish Eugene Ma.
— Adam Feldman, Time Out New York
A fearlessly funny Eugene Ma.
Laughter is the best medicine sometimes. This is one of those times.
— Lore Croghan, Brooklyn Daily Eagle
Eugene Ma, whose boyishness grows on you.
A campy, happy romp, just perfect for a New York City beset with dread.
This is a production that should move to Broadway. It is, by far, the most entertaining show in New York City and deserves to be seen.
— Joel Benjamin, Theater Pizzazz
Theatre for a New Audience has on its hands its best production in years with The Servant of Two Masters, a much-welcomed commedia salve for the trauma of November 8. The entire cast is terrific.
Eugene Ma, playing Silvio, an airheaded lover caught up in Beatrice’s cross-dressing schemes, shuffles on and off the stage with the blinking gape of a lost cow.
— Aaron Botwick, Scribicide

Secret Love in Peach Blossom Land (English Premiere)

as Tao

Oregon Shakespeare Festival, 2015

Directed, Written & Adapted by Stan Lai Sheng Chuan 賴聲川

Eugene Ma is fabulous as the earnest, cuckolded fisherman Tao, whose comic travails make up much of the Peach Blossom tale.
— Bob Keefer, Eugene Art Talk
Lai’s most famous work Secret Love In Peach Blossom Land may be the most popular contemporary play in China.
— New York Times
Eugene Ma as the enraged, befuddled fisherman is simply hilarious and an extremely gifted physical presence.
The best Chinese language playwright and director in the world
Many consider him the greatest Chinese playwright of our generation, ranking with Cao Yu and Lao She who were in their prime in the first half of the 20th century.
— China Daily

Guys and Dolls

as Joey Biltmore, Calvin & Gambler

Book by Jo Swerling & Abe Burrows

Music & Lyrics by Frank Loesser

As good as any production I’ve ever seen of the greatest of all the golden-age musicals.
— Terry Teachout, Wall Street Journal
There are a couple of pleasing cameos, including Eugene Ma as the wary landlord who won’t take Nathan’s marker.
— Deborah Klugman, LA Weekly
A perfect staging of this perfect musical.
— Bob Keefer, Eugene Art Talk
If there’s anything that makes Oregon Shakespeare Festival’s take on Guys And Dolls stand head-and-shoulders above lesser Loesser revivals, it is the production’s Broadway-caliber cast, whose takes on characters we’ve seen again and again make us feel we are meeting them for the first time.
— Steven Stanley, Stage Scene LA

Accidental Death of an Anarchist

as Two Constables

Berkeley Repertory Theatre, 2014;

Yale Repertory Theatre, 2013

Written by Dario Fo

Translated by Gavin Richards

Directed by Christopher Bayes

This take on The Accidental Death of an Anarchist is as breezy, uproarious, and meaningful as a political satire can be. David Mamet, take a lesson.
— SF-ist
Eugene Ma absolutely steals the show as a pair of virtually identical constables, gaping and whimpering like a toddler. Pretty much every time he does anything, it’s hysterical.
To equal the frantic physical-comedy standard set by the sweet-voiced Eugene Ma (as a couple of constables) is no mean feat.
— New Haven Theater Jerk
Eugene Ma’s Constables should get a permanent gig in some comedy troupe somewhere.
— New Haven Review

"Pure stage magic... Adina Verson and Eugene Ma as the childlike lovers Clarice and Silvio deliver laugh-out-loud, soap opera-level intensity."                 - City Arts
"So you know when you go to a show and there’s that one actor on stage who is so good, so funny, that the show and the other actors just kind of revolve around them like some theatrical sun warming all in its orbit? OK, now imagine an entire stage filled with that actor and you’ll have the Seattle Rep’s current production of “The Servant of Two Masters” which kicks off their 51st season not with a bang but with a hearty belly laugh that lasts for two and a half hours. The cast is from the comedy gods.                 - Broadway World
