Cripple of Inishmaan (Billy) at Centenary Stage
"Tom Morin is exquisite as Cripple Billy. He twists himself into a pathetic yet sympathetic character, taking on the shape of an outwardly damaged physicality and also embodying the inner damage that his body’s disabilities and his hard life have imbued in Billy. Morin spits and staggers and limps and drags himself along the stage in an excruciating dance of pain and emotion. There is much more to his performance, but detailing it here would be a spoiler, so I will refrain from that. Suffice it to say he is simply perfect in all the turns and shades of this character."
- Janine M. Torsiello, Morris Beats
"As Billy, Morin has the greatest challenge. He not only has to convey the character’s physical ailments, but also must range from melodramatic monologue to casual observation. The actor easily meets these requirements, but more memorably, he affectingly conveys the wistful, melancholy side to Billy — the boy who knows he has just a slim chance for happiness, but strives for more."
- Ronni Reich, The Star Ledger
- Rick Busciglio, NY Examiner
"As Billy, Tom Morin managed to transcend the broad comedy around him, eliciting pathos without sloppy sentimentality. And his physical struggle, moving as a handicapped man, was startlingly and painfully convincing."
