Post's on stage performance is masterful as his imagination works overtime to blend comedy and creativity throughout his theatrical work. The sophistication and intelligence of Robert's creative work is unique. He is truly a special performer who has the ability to adapt to and deeply engage widely diverse audiences. I highly recommend working with him.
Scott Noppe-Brandon, Executive Director Lincoln Center Institute, New York, NY
Robert has that rare ability to entrance the youngest of children (my two year old daughter fell madly in love at first sight) and, at the very same time, engross the most seasoned of adult theater goers. His shows are a delight for multi-generational audiences who can enjoy together his humor, magic and poignant commentary on life's joys and trials.
