John Henry Davis has directed in an unfussy way that nevertheless perceived the expanse of a modest-size stage as an invitation to play and build with it, his hand as happy in that space as a sculptor’s in clay 

John Simon, New York Magazine for Mountain

John Henry Davis’s direction keeps things moving briskly and balances out the dramatic and comedic elements of Quilter’s play with grace.

Long Beach Post on End of the Rainbow

Director John Henry Davis loves Garland and directs with a deft touch . . . If you love Garland, if you love her voice and her life and her inspiration, you’ve got to see it.

Press Telegram on End of the Rainbow

Director John Henry Davis . . . takes us into the expansive mental space of the characters so effectively he defies the cramped contours of black-box theater. His work, especially with his leads, is so natural it becomes invisible . . .

Hollywood Reporter on Doctor Anonymous 

A humdinger of a play and production this is under John Henry Davis’ incisive direction . . . I for one could hardly have been more thrilled about my two-hour-long fly-on-the-wall Date With Judy.

John Henry Davis’ direction is ingenious, comically inventive and unending…

Thomas Lask, New York Times for Taming of the Shrew

It’s stunning, evocative and incredibly well done, with a cast of great actors…a must see production.

iHeart Radio on Cardinal Sins

Two-character plays don’t get much more entertaining or ultimately moving than Joanna McClelland Glass’s Trying . . . John Henry Davis directs for ICT with assuredness and subtlety, and the performances he has elicited from Trying’s two stars, are . . . as good as it gets.

Stage Scene LA for Trying

. . . a handsomely staged and well performed guest production at the Odyssey Theatre . . . Davis’ music-infused staging keeps the sprawling story threads in focus and draws vivid, memorable performances from his 14-member cast.

Los Angeles Times for When Stars Align

John Henry Davis directed the play so well, I would swear the playwright must have flown 3000 mile here to tell him just what she’d hoped for (he’s 100% on target & heart).

Seal Batch Patch for Trying

Considerable credit should …go to director John Henry Davis…He’s got everyone acting as if they had lived together for years…

Don Nelson, Daily News for Daughters
