Not only can he sing and act, he can – and does – play the tuba as well.” - Limelight Magazine “Rob Johnson, among many responsibilities, has the wit and wickedness to play 'old Doc Pierce' with a juvenile coarseness and follows it with Francis Fryer, a hilarious and endearing invention, that in my estimation launches Mr Johnson into a kind of centre-stage stardom in the making. We have seen him before: Carrie, Triassic Parq, Man of La Mancha, but now you will certainly remember that you have. A twinkling, endearing personality accompanied with intelligence and daring courage.” - Kevin Jackson Theatre Diary “Keep an eye out for improv comic and music theatre performer Rob Johnson, who brings an element of suppressed madness to Francis Fryer and other cameos.” - Time Out “Providing many of the funniest cameos throughout the musical was Rob Johnson as Francis Fryer/Doc Pierce. His energetic and charismatic moments always entertained.” - Stage Whispers "...the scene-stealing Rob Johnson, in the dual roles of Francis Fryer and Doc Pierce. His theatresports talents are given a platform in this production and he does not disappoint." - The AU Review "Rob Johnson as Francis Fryer enchantingly works his socks off as a marvellous song and dance man, hinting of hidden bigger opportunities." - ArtsHub “Rob Johnson (the hapless showpony Francis Fryer) … sparkle[s] mischievously.” - Sydney Morning Herald “Rob Johnson is a hoot as uptight music hall performer Francis Fryer.” - Daily Telegraph "Taylor, Johnson and Bunting all impress - especially Johnson's evolution from bumbling thespian to passionate swain." - ArtsHub “Rob Johnson is delightful as the awkward and timid Francis Fryer and the minor role of Doc Pierce. He presents Francis with a shy geekiness whilst harbouring a quiet strength of character. His turn in drag is hilarious as is his fretful fear at what the townsfolk will do when they realise Calamity hasn't delivered the famous Adelaide Adams.” - Broadway World Sondheim on Sondheim: “[A] force of nature … When he takes the audience on a ride through Merrily We Roll Along’s “Franklin Shepherd Inc” it is masterful – his clarity and humour and frustration and regret are so worth the price of admission alone. Johnson is skilfully comic and deftly complex in this number, and it’s a real credit to James-Moody and Johnson that they have brought a fully realised performance to the table for just one song from one of Sondheim’s more obscure shows. Johnson can and should handle meaty roles in the musical theatre world; he’s ready, and his voice has never sounded better.” - AussieTheatre The Detective's Handbook: “Rob Johnson superbly channels Michael Crawford as the lead detective and devotee of the titular handbook.” - ArtsHub “Rob Johnson makes a specky nerd of the over-literal, keen as mustard rookie, landing most of his gauche one-liners with aplomb and singing with a clean, bright tenor.” - Limelight Magazine “Johnson’s energetic deliveries of his fabulously witty lines are spot on - clearly a nod to his background in improv, comedy and theatresports.” - The AU Review Of Thee I Sing “The supporting players (Blake Erickson, Nathan Farrow, Jamie Leigh Johnson and Rob Johnson) all prove themselves to be comedic chameleons.” - Daily Review “The rather impressive Rob Johnson whose substantial, Protean talents are called for in playing almost everyone else.” - Limelight Magazine Triassic Parq “The standout here though is of course Mr Rob Johnson … He delivers even the smallest of movements or the slightest of lines with such animated emotion that you fear turning away from him for even a second.” - The AU Review “Rob Johnson is a charismatic and beautiful Velociraptor of Innocence.” - Stage Noise
