The 39 Steps
"Along the way, Richard meets an array of Hitchcockian characters ... all of them played by Daniel Millhouse and Matthew Singleton, whose rapid-fire transformations from salesmen to porter to constable to paperboy to matronly passenger - all during a brief train stop - provide some of the production's most satisfying comedy."
"Millhouse and Singleton have a flair for accents and outsize characters."
Barbara Vitello – The Daily Herald (September 13, 2017)
"All the other characters are played by Daniel Millhouse and Matthew Singleton, who demonstrate incredible physical and vocal stamina, acting prowess, and comedic timing. They do everything from puppetry to Vaudeville-esque hat tricks to tumbling while supplying the color and tone of this play’s skewed little world. Their take on a doddering old couple of innkeepers is as amusing as their portrayal of a pair of jerks on a train and a battalion of bobbies in hot pursuit of Hannay. But they step in for dramatic roles, as well, always with a distinctive quirk which transforms their entire persona."
Jacob David – Around the Town Chicago (September 19, 2017)
“Disguised as a lord and his footman, Tom Aimwell (played by an enthusiastic Daniel Millhouse) and his friend Archer (the charming Michael Jahn) just abandon their Machiavellian plan almost instantly, after they fall in love with the daughter and daughter-in-law of the wealthy and eccentric Lady Bountiful (a pitch-perfect Barbara Clayton).”
Gwendolyn Rice – Isthmus (November 21, 2015)
“McLaughlin’s play is the first one I can remember that actually portrays Menelaus, Helen’s cuckolded huz, as something other than an oafish moron who hit it big in the trophy-wife lottery. Here, he’s intensely played by Daniel Millhouse and given a real chance to tell his side of this story: We’re presented with a man devastated by betrayal and the horrors of war.”
Aaron Conklin – Madison Magazine (November 26, 2014)
“The play’s clear, artistic vision is enhanced by performances by actors such as Daniel Millhouse as Richard and Chelsea Anderson as Queen Margaret.”
“Millhouse performs the leading role as Richard excellently. He appears completely absorbed in his role, and the audience can easily see – and believe – that he truly is Richard when he is onstage. His performance encompasses many aspects of Richard’s character, such as the character’s physical deformities, occasionally slimy commentary and ‘plotting evil villain’ tendencies. He fluidly moves through scenes by using a varied vocal intensity and emotive facial expressions. When he ‘flies’ across the stage wearing a gaudy blue cap and headpiece, his facial expressions are what made the scene decidedly ‘creepy’, while dimmed lighting and ominous organ music contribute to this effect.”
Sara Lawton – The Badger Herald (April 21, 2014)
“Cleverly staged and deftly executed, Daniel Millhouse’s transformations are a pleasure to watch as he portrays the randy son, stiff husband, doddering grandfather and dashing count.”
Gwendolyn Rice – Isthmus (March 1, 2014)
“And as the Canary, Daniel Millhouse is cruel, anarchic and hammy all at once.”
Jennifer Smith – Isthmus (March 2, 2013)
The 39 Steps
“Millhouse brings his trademark bright-eyed, down-to-earth and organic comedic style.”
Jerome Stuart Nichols – The Eastern Echo (June 4, 2012)
Go, Dog. Go!
“From the moment our spotted canine main character, played by Daniel Millhouse, appears on stage donning a trench coat and knit hat reminiscent of a 90’s ska band, the humor and fun begins.”
Jerome Stuart Nichols – The Eastern Echo (November 30, 2011)
A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum
“Hardy delivers strong vocals and nails some comic bits; and as the neighborhood pimp, Marcus Lycus, Daniel Millhouse has some fine comic moments, as does Matthew Andersen as Miles Gloriosus.”
Jenn McKee – AnnArbor.com (October 24, 2009)
Angels in America Part II: Perestroika
“Daniel Millhouse (Prior), Daniel Helmer (Joe), and Maxim Hunt (Louis) each provide subtle, thoughtful portrayals of men involved in a highly complicated love triangle, while Sarah Szydlowski – playing the spaced-out, depressed wife of a Mormon man who’s gay – delivers comic relief with a strong dose of pathos.”

Angels in America Part I: Millenium Approaches
“Hunt and Millhouse also do good work as troubled, conflicted lovers, and Jessejames Collins has a great time playing Belize, Prior’s former drag queen best friend.”
