Review: NDSF's 'Much Ado' a toe-tapper: NDSF's 'Much Ado' swings with World War II setting
By Andrew S. Hughes, South Bend Tribune, August 18, 2017

"Cameron Knight and Ingersoll make Benedick and Beatrice a fiery and unpredictable couple with a wonderful, lively rhythm to their exchanges. Each makes exquisite, often hilarious use of facial expressions and body language and has a commanding stage presence, him with a manly coolness and her with a liberated playfulness." Read the full review...


The Notre Dame Shakespeare Festival jumps and jives with WW II 'Much Ado About Nothing'
By Andrew S. Hughes, South Bend Tribune, August 13, 2017

"Many love stories are young lovers coming to it for the first time, and it has an innocence to it," [Knight] says. "The thing I love about ‘Much Ado’ is that it’s people who are brave enough to try one more time. … You see what happens when the smallest detail can tear everything apart. It shows how delicate love can be."

My Manana Comes
Newcity Stage

"The ensemble cast of Dennis García, Johnathan Nieves, Victor Maraña and Cameron Knight delivers throughout, but especially in scenes between Jorge (Maraña) and Peter (Knight)."
"Throughout the show Maraña and Knight wonderfully encapsulate the sacrifices, anger and frustration good people—both immigrants and citizens—are faced with in contemporary American society."
 

My Manana Comes
Chicago Tribune

"...Marana and Knight are especially empathetic actors who've forged rich characters."


Blues for an Alabama Sky
"Top notch performances are given by supporting actors Cameron Knight (Sam)… whose deep, sexy voice and expressive eyes help define the inner turmoil his character faces" \
Between The Lines News


Othello
Kilgore News Herald

"In my opinion, the death scene that Shakespeare wrote is one of the most difficult scenes that was ever written for an actor to perform convincingly. From the time Cameron Knight, as Othello, spoke to himself the words, "It is the cause, it is the cause," genuine believability came through in his character. The audience sat in silent horror as they watched him smother his beloved Desdemona, though moments earlier he had kissed her tenderly as she slept. It was obvious from the beginning of the play that he adored her, so when he believed her to be unfaithful, Knight's anger was explosive…I must confess, though, that his stage presence and bare chest gave the audience something to whisper about."
 

Othello
LA Weekly

"As Othello, Knight precisely navigates the slippery slope into paranoia, gradually unraveling until he becomes near-primal, the "black ram" Iago first described him as and now has led him to be." 


Lombardi
Third Coast Digest

"Robinson was one of Lombardi’s black players. Knight applied a cool, slick demeanor to Robinson. His character explains that under Lombardi, Packers players were allowed to patronize only the Green Bay bars that would serve all players, black and white. Any other bar was off limits. Thus Knight and the play bring to light a little-known fact that makes you stop and think." 


Parlour Song
TRIBLIVE.com

"Cameron Knight's tormented Ned is perfectly played as a bore, an earnest bore, who plays and replays his videos of his biggest blasts for his friends. A bore who needles his wife at dinner: Is the chicken moist? Are the carrots overdone? Really, can't you make room for a bit of jam roly-poly?"
 

Parlour Song 
Pittsburgh Post Gazette

"Ned is a harder bloke to fathom. What's really eating him? Is he impotent or just too removed from life to embrace his wife? And why does he keep losing things like gold cuff links or a lawn mower? Cameron Knight brings a sympathetic earnestness to a character who does want to please -- a dinner scene with Joy is a standout -- or to destroy somebody like he levels buildings."
 

Parlour Song
Pittsburgh City Paper

"Knight is particularly praiseworthy: In a few key scenes, he brings the audience from amusement to terror and back again."


Looking for the Pony
Pittsburgh Post Gazette

"Moreover, Cameron Knight, a recent addition to the theatre faculty at CMU, brings memorable color and definition to a multiplicity of subsidiary characters and becomes a wonder to watch."
