Michael Musto wrote, "The sincere and amiable singer/dancer put on a show that was honest, personal, connected, and full of rhapsodizing rhythm. In my many years of reviewing cabaret acts, I've never seen anyone dare to dance on those relatively small stages, let alone turn them into gigantic recital halls by the sheer force of will and talent."

Tony's Broadway credits also include Billy Flynn in Chicago, Phil Davis in White Christmas, Tulsa in Gypsy (w/Patti LuPone), and Al in the revival of A Chorus Line.
