Radio Golf by August Wilson

 

"One of the few traits keeping Hicks safely out of the realm of stock villain-hood is the poignancy Johnson brings to his character's account of his first truly liberating experience—hitting a golf ball and watching it fly. We sense Hicks' desperation to achieve that sort of flight for himself is as deep-seated, and blinding, as his hunger to join the realm of the truly rich and powerful."

"Johnson's Albert, though a smaller role, is relatable, but he shines as Kevin, who wants everyone to get along and get on with their lives. Johnson is able to elicit laughs amid uncomfortable scenes and provide a level of sanity to tense situations"

Please Report Any Suspicious Activity by Rick Park

 

"Finally, there's no telling if Rick Park's Please Report Any Suspicious Activity would have had the same convulsive appeal if Nilan Johnson hadn't nailed an improbable but devastating musical theater riff in mid-show. But he did, and it did; it was one of several fortunate meetings between stage and page artists this time out "

The Imaginary Invalid by Moliere

 

"Ball's deliberately scabrous adaptation spares us nothing from that catalog, with repeated and abrasive verbal and, occasionally, visual references to the acts and by-products of defecation, inevitably transported and dumped into an audience-level basin by the sarcastic Bucket Boy (given fitting contempt by Nilan Johnson)."

 

-Bryan Woods, Indy Week

Triassic Parq by Marshal Pailet

 

"Nilan Johnson was spot-on as the Velociraptor of Faith, hitting the comedy notes as well as the dramatic undertones."
