The Real McCoy, 4th Line Theatre
"[Portraying McCoy] was an emotional roller-coaster. Physically and mentally...I’m using every bone in my body. When I’m in character, I have to leave all the other s--t at home and totally immerse myself."
Beau Dixon, toronto.com
"Beau strikes the perfect balance between heart and mind needed to play the character...he was born to play this role."
Andrew Moodie, Playwright
Titus Andronicus, Shakespeare in High Park
"As motiveless malignity Aaron, Beau Dixon heightens the Moor's inexplicable evil with charm to spare and a diabolical glee"
Jeff Cottrill, digitaljournal.com
"Only Beau Dixon’s intense Aaron arouses any serious interest; his unconditional love for his child and unconditional hate for everyone else stands out, each having an impressive purity."

"In the Narrator, Beau Dixon, who has appeared in many shows before, finally has a role that showcases his talent for singing, playing guitar and acting. He gives a fantastic performance.”
"Just as funny as it is insightful and moving, the plot is presented as the memoir of an on-stage narrator (Beau Dixon) who, guitar in hand, punctuates his stories with wall-rattling blues riffs. Rating: NNNN"
