Q: The show has a lot of big musical numbers. Do you have a favorite?

A: It's the last three big numbers, which are 'Mamma Mia! (Reprise),' 'Dancing Queen (Reprise)' and 'Waterloo,' just because we're out there, we're just having fun, we're dancing. Honestly, we get a little bit of creative freedom when it comes to some of the dance moves. So, I just go out there, and it's new every night. I just have a good time doing whatever dance I'm feeling.

"For Quinn, who’s starred in prior productions of Xanadu, learning to let go of past expectations proved challenging. 'I had to break some old habits,' Quinn said. 'Since this is a whole new cast, a new Kira and a new set, I needed to reset [my expectations]. I had to adapt, which can be hard because I basically had to tear down my house and rebuild it.'

Yet, Quinn said, playing the role of Sonny is one of the more rewarding experiences of his career."

The Show Report


"Dorian Quinn exhibits a likeable boy-next-door charisma (as the portrayal calls for,) while also displaying a versatile style to his singing, which enables him to go from softly stroking the heartstrings to belting it out to the backrow, the way many of the songs that comprise the score require him to do."

(Leo Buck, August 11, 2022.)

"Her co-lead, Dorian Quinn, well deserves extended ovations for his absolutely marvelous acting ability (seemingly all natural), combined with a vocal range that boggles the mind. I cannot believe he has not been snatched up yet for some Broadway musical."

(Chris Daniels, August 10, 2022.)

"By contrast, Dorian Quinn lends bad boy Chuck Cranston menace. Cranston competes with Red for Ariel's affections. And Quinn's threatening demeanor makes us clearly side with Ren."
