Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat

“Rick Desloge stars in the title role. His portrayal of Joseph is simultaneously vulnerable and powerful. He perfectly captures the complex adolescent coming-of-age aspect of this story. His rendition of “Close Every Door” gave me chills and moved me to tears. (And by the way, I know that those phrases are cliches, but “chills and tears” are what happened, so I’m using the words.)” – Hope Baugh, Indy Theatre Habit

“Rick Desloge plays the part of Joseph to a tee. He brings kindness and wisdom to the story of this Old Testament prophet. But what is most impressive about Desloge is his voice. He will send chills down your spine and make goosebumps appear on your skin as he fills the theater with his big booming sound. Doug King’s direction of Desloge makes him almost a carbon copy of Osmond’s own Joseph. I say almost because he is simply captivating in this role, and takes an ownership over the part that I’m sure would put even Mr. Osmond to shame” – Katelyn Coyne,

“Clara’s other major observation, in addition to being a really good singer, she thought Joseph had really nice muscles. (”He is so stroooong….” she noted.) She is 4. Do I need to worry? Seriously, NOT just the muscles wowed me. I am picky about my Josephs. Having played the Narrator in a local production years ago, co-directed a different production of it once, and watched Donny Osmond in the role in Chicago, I know this show inside and out. And this young actor, Rick Desloge, was an awesome Joseph. He has a voice that really is impressive, and just perfect for the part. A beautiful and incredibly strong performance!” – Trisha Shepherd,

Treasure Island

“Rick Desloge is a star in the making as the nubile, orphaned cabin boy Jim Hawkins. His crystal clear tenor voice soars into the stratospheres, and he easily wins the audience over with his boyish charm and plucky heroism.” – Joe Stead, Steadstyle Chicago

“It’s Desloge’s Hawkins who carries the bulk of the show on his fit shoulders. He manages this with grace and soaring vocals from the frustrated, boyish plea of “Look at Me” to the anthemic ‘Seize the Day.’” – Catey Sullivan, Chicago Theatre Review Examiner

“In Thursday’s matinee, Rick Desloge bubbled over with Jim’s adolescent urge to be involved in life’s most significant experiences. It was a portrayal in danger of not wearing well, but Desloge made it charming. He moved and sang with an assurance that swept all opposition away…” – Jay Harvey, Indianapolis Star

Forever Plaid

“Desloge is adorable – there is no other word for him. Every time he sings, every time he speaks to the audience or to his compatriots there is a joy that bursts out of him, visible in his smile, audible in his voice. His body plays his emotions front and center. He is ninety percent pride and it’s extraordinary.” – J. Peter Bergman, Berkshire Bright Focus


“Rick Desloge plays Doody, the role that Travolta first took over. He solos in both acts in two important numbers, “Those Magic Changes” and “Rock ‘N Roll Party Queen.” This guy has so much charm it bursts out of him and that personality will take him a long way. He plays his role with great conviction and obvious interest. But much as he did as Jinx in “Forever Plaid” here, he moves beyond the role he is playing to allow a fusion of his own persona and that of the character he plays.” – J. Peter Bergman, Edge: Boston, MA / Berkshire Bright Focus

Hello, I Must Be Going

“There are two standout performances that make this particularly worth seeing: Rick Desloge is both hugely likable and enormously convincing as Baby Julie, simultaneously showing us the infant that his parents experience and the intellectual adult-to-be that we meet from the audience…” – Martin Denton,

“Lily Corvo and Rick Desloge, who play the twins with authentic sensitivity and humor, are
bright spots in a production that is otherwise easy to leave behind.” – Robin Rothstein, Time Out NY
