...the production’s chief acting asset is Zach Brewster-Geisz, who conjures up a wonderfully idiotic and self-aggrandizing Bottom, complete with hilarious walk-like-an-Egyptian movements in the play within the play.

Shadow puppets lend an otherworldliness to ‘Midsummer’, The Washington Post

... Zach Brewster-Geisz supplies broad but welcome comedy as a dim-witted Lord Hastings, who thinks he needs to speak really slowly and LOUDLY when talking to Richard.

NextStop offers chilling, clever take on ‘Richard III,’ featuring deaf and hearing actors, The Washington Post

Brewster-Geisz steals every scene he’s in as Frog, a regular visitor whose charismatic ramblings are as insightful as they are puzzling.

‘Grand Concourse’ at Prologue Theatre, DCMetro Theater Arts

Zach Brewster-Geisz (Hastings/Lord Mayor/Messenger/Herbert) is a standout throughout. The condescending way in which he speaks to Richard is both funny and sad; a commentary on the way disabled people are sometimes treated. He handles his quadruple casting superbly.

... several actors are standouts here: Zach Brewster-Geisz is amusing as Bottom the Weaver, the would-be acting troupe’s self-appointed matinee idol; Brewster-Geisz carries the show with his antics...

Review: A Midsummer Night's Dream, Baltimore Shakespeare Factory, Maryland Theatre Guide 

Zach Brewster-Geisz shines in the comic role of Nick Bottom... In most productions, certainly the 10 or 12 I've seen, Bottom wears a donkey mask. But Mr. Brewster-Geisz wears only a donkey's ears; he conveys the rest through voice and body language, primarily by adopting the awkward gait of an animal walking on its hind legs.

Collins is played deliciously by Zach Brewster-Geisz, who makes his character much more humorous than odious.

There's 'Pride' in every aspect of Annapolis Shakespeare production  (Pride and Prejudice review), Baltimore Sun

As a slightly off-kilter character who rather appears to enjoy the sound of his own voice, Brewster-Geisz embodies the comic relief role [of Mr. Collins] quite well, with a keen sense of laborious pontification and priceless facial expressions.

"Pride and Prejudice" at Annapolis Shakespeare Company , DC Metro Theater Arts

Brewster-Geisz as the ever-hungry servant gives Truffaldino a new attitude, one that is more self-serving and less playful than one would imagine, but his comic gestures and well-timed zingers are still perfectly executed.

"The Green Bird" at the National Conservatory of Dramatic Arts , DC Metro Theater Arts 

... it is Zachary Brewster-Geisz who steals the show as the young, crude and incredulous Mozart. Throughout the play Brewster-Geisz is able to wax comic and tragic without the least bit of hesitation... superior acting.
