"Shore gives Cash that older brother solidity. Cash was also more a country singer than a rocker and here Shore comes through on Cash's 'Folsom Prison Blues' and 'I Walk The Line,' at that time a huge breakthrough hit for the Man in Black."

Our Town

by Thornton Wilder

Heartwood Regional Theater Company (2016)

...Shore has a comforting gravitas, a self-deprecating manner, and an easy way of letting important lines sit lightly before they sink in. Once in awhile, a resemblance to Hal Holbrook appeared. He is the glue that holds "Our Town" together and Shore's charm extended into the audience.

If you’ve seen it before, you will not be disappointed in this production...

If you’ve never seen it, I’m excited for you to experience it now.

Shore is perfectly cast as the Stage Manager... 

He has a warm countrified accent and welcoming demeanor, and the way he tells the audience about the place, the people and times (1901-13), you are convinced of his fondness for Grover's Corners and the simplicity of life there.

The Legend of Jim Cullen

Book & Lyrics by Griff Braley, Music Composed by Aaron Robinson

Heartwood Regional Theatre Company (2014)

"Stephen Shore’s Cullen is never a “character,” allowing the audience to feel sympathy for the person he creates."

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

"Stephen Shore as Jim Cullen may not be as physically huge as Cullen was purported to be, but he makes the man real. Shore evokes a kind of sympathy for Cullen, who was a violent criminal. That skill, to make an audience feel pity without a word, but with a glance or a shrug of the shoulder speaks of real talent."

Lost In Space

by Dejan Dukovski

-The WhiteListed Theatre Company (2014)

"This heavy WWII drama wouldn't have been so powerful without the comedic duo of the two young actors Eric Paterniani and Stephen Shore. These two actors were able to show the tragicomedy of the human condition during the war and its extreme consequence. Bravo!"

-Marc Villard

"Ensemble acting is a joy to see and hear especially when it's bringing life to a well written script. You can tell when actors have respect for each other's craft, they give each other space to perform. In fact when I do attend a play where there is that kind of supremely strong interaction I feel like I too am on stage, in the midst of art unfolding."
