"One of the things that sets Rex apart from other great coaches, is simply who he is. When he works with me, he sees the world of the play and the material he is coaching in an entirely unique way. He has the ability to not only pull deep clarity and truth out of me, but also an unexpected quirk, an otherness, that makes me stand out. He pushes me out of my comfortable box into choices I could never have seen alone. And it's those choices that set my work apart."

"Rex is a smart and perceptive director that goes above and beyond to understand a scene you are working on with him. He pulls the best out of you by coaching you to use achievable tactics and clear intentions. He guides you to bringing out the big picture as well as the specificity of a scene. He knows his theatre, is sharp on honest, human behavior, and is very business savvy. He's also just fun to work with. Seriously, he's great. I owe him a lot."
