from Eric Marchese's OC Register review:

"Long’s hearty, confident Poseidon is all hubris and macho vigor, with a huge, booming voice and a seen-it-all, done-it-all air of boredom. He can’t believe Medusa would push him aside in favor of her loyalty to Athena, and his fiery anger is as chilling as Athena’s icy retribution."

from Mark's Theatre Ghost review:

"Derek Long’s Poseidon is uncouth from the start, yet boyishly innocent and huskily arousing as well; we recoil at his repugnant selfishness, yet we cannot disclaim him."

A great actor is generous. They're in tune with themselves physically and emotionally. They come to terms with nerves, and work with it. They are present on stage, and they give themselves completely to the other actors, who are able to give back to them. There is give and take. The story is told, and there is total connection with the audience.
