Review: BIG FISH at Candlelight Music Theatre
"Director/Choreographer Devon Sinclair speaks truth to power in his "Director Notes" and is a good primer before curtain should you, like most, not know the plot.
This is an exquisite show. The cast in outstanding. In every scene, whether it be dialogue or dance, the actors pour out their hearts and show us "what I do for love"... Most choreography is derivative. If a theatre is staging OKLAHOMA!, WEST SIDE STORY, PIPPIN, etc., the choreographer studies the movie and recreates it. Ho Hum. With BIG FISH, however, Sinclair was inventive and imaginative. The end result was extraordinary; totally different from the norm one experiences in regional theatre. In his bio, Sinclair says he wishes to 'challenge standards'. Yep. Case closed."

Disney’s Newsies at Broadway Theatre of Pitman
"A notable performance is given by Devon Sinclair, who plays the role of Specs. While the character itself is not heavily written into the show. Sinclair makes sure you remember him. Whether it is rolling from one side of the stage to the other or his flawless fouette turns during the “Seize the Day” dance break, he definitely makes a lasting impression on audience members.” Read More

"In the end, though, the old man really tied into one of the final scenes of the night —a dance choreographed by Fields called “One Step, One Lifetime.” The interpretative dance was inspired by the love story in the Pixar film, “Up.” It followed the main character with his childhood sweetheart, through their heartbreaking journey of life and love together."
”A standout aspect of the show was the intricate and inventive choreography, which was worked into almost all of the phases of the performance...Each dance felt original, whether it was the dummy-like gestures of “We Both Reached Gun,” or the use of chairs in “Velma Takes The Stand.”“The dancing was really great,” Tom Walsh (sophomore-division of undergraduate studies) said. “The ‘Cell Block Tango’ really stood out.”
