Life During Wartime
""Matt Delamater (Tommy) provides super glue acting to keep his broken character together. Delamater gives a multi-layered performance that is genuine and honest, providing a strong lead, emotionally and physically, for the rest of the cast to create with." "
""Through Parker and Delamater’s remarkably empathetic performances, any one version of the couple comes to feel like the sum of its multiplicity. And its exquisite final moments, Constellations lets Marianne and Roland waltz in the vastness of their possibilities. As Marianne and Roland dance, their infinite choices — and the limits of knowing only one at a time — scintillate in the air. We might feel our own myriad selves hovering somewhere close."

Romeo and Juliet
""Delamater, fearsome and ripped in a modified track suit....Delamater's Tybalt is a wall of hateful fire against all Montague allies." "
""Tybalt is given combustible gravitas by Matt Delamater as a single-minded powerhouse whose raison d’etre is to kill Montagues.""
Death by Design
"The preternaturally adaptable Delamater, as Eric, is ever a pleasure to watch: the nuance with which his rabble-rouser navigates the various British classes and personalities, and his own impulses, is at once subtle and perfectly suited to farce."
Waiting for Godot
"Delamater has an old-timey showman's charisma"
"Matt Delamater, evocative in a difficult, elusive role..."
"Matt Delamater, excellently predatory"
Death of a Salesman *
"Matt Delamater delivers a solid performance...He displays a deep dramatic talent in clashes with his father over his aimless job-jumping and attempts to “find himself.” Delamater has become one of the area’s finest actors in just a few years..."
