Joe Sykes, The Buzz…

Praise for Joe’s performance as Wolf in Steve Yockey’s play Wolves

“Sykes affectingly captures the stranger as lonely guy who feels disillusioned with the singles scene and is reluctant to become part of the roommates’ drama. In a surprisingly brief period, Sykes captures an original, three-dimensional personality, where least expected.” — Curt Holman, Creative Loafing


“A kind of alchemy occurs whenever actor Joe Sykes appears in the work of playwright Steve Yockey. Over nearly a decade of collaboration, Sykes reliably discovers the deepest levels of meaning and implication in Yockey’s scripts, from a cheerful, gay shopkeeper in Dad’s Garage’s Large Animal Games to a swaggering, lethally cool character appropriately called “Rockstar” in Out of Hand Theater’s Cartoon. That old black magic between performer and written word returns with Wolves.” — Curt Holman, Creative Loafing
