Review from “Party Boy” by Kerric Harvey
"Malone is, quite literally, astonishing in his range and elasticity, moving from one persona to another with effortless ease and absolute authenticity. He is also quite a physical actor, adept at translating interior states into observable styling as well as impeccably accurate dramatic rendering, equally believable across a panapoly of ages, ethnicities, sexuality, and class. The directorial vision for this production of "Party Boy" requires huge athleticism from all of its cast members, but perhaps Malone most of all, since he must, literally, spin among stage persona as often as Blaney, but with more radical costume changes and often more theatrical phsyicality associated with them.
For instance, he plays a number of Patrick's sex partners, some of whom are in it for the money more than for the pleasure and/or the glory of sleeping with Ireland's most sought-after prince of gay go-go. This often requires him to take the lead in carefully choreographed sex scenes that cross classic porn rituals with kabuki-like staging, a physically taxing undertaking if ever there was one. Malone handles this, and more, with high style and convincing detail, keeping the show moving along its interstellar orbit at warp speed."
Review From "Striaght Acting" by The Irish Times
Teacher's Club, Dublin
Later in the day, the intimate setting of the Teacher’s Club is perfect for writer-director Brian Merriman’s highly polished and stylish Straight Acting. Another comedic two-hander, only this one features two men, one gay one straight. Harry (Jeremie Cyr-Cooke) and Alan (Colin Malone) deliver exquisite performances full of energy and gravitas from the start.
In a clever take on Shaw’s Pygmalion, we learn that Harry must somehow teach Alan how to play a gay man with authenticity for an audition in just twenty-four hours’s time. What ensues is a hysterical juxtaposition of masculine authority as Alan learns how to be a real man by looking to the person and not the gender when it comes to intimacy.
