As Aram in Beast on the Moon (In Tandem Theatre)

“Michael Cotey brings three-dimensional richness to this boy/man who grows up all too fast, talking tough while the pain burns deeply.”

- Harry Cherkinian, Shepherd Express


“Cotey is a true force to watch.”

- David Begel, OnMilwaukee.com


“Cotey is impressive as a tortured soul who uses most of his energies trying to control something or someone.”

- Julie McHale, GM Today


As Fox / Owl in The Mole Hill Stories (First Stage)

“Consistently excellent.”

- Mike Fischer, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel


As Randy in microcrisis (Next Act Theatre)

“Michael Cotey proves his acting chops have a rare range. He unleashes a taste for comedy that is subtle as it is surprising.”

- David Begel, OnMilwaukee.com


As Malcolm in Macbeth (Optimist Theatre)

“As usual, Cotey makes his lines feel fresh and original.”

- Russ Bickerstaff, Shepherd Express


“Michael Cotey brings his formidable intellect to create an anti-Macbeth: thoughtful, reticent and humane.”

- Jeff Grygny, Milwaukee Theatre Examiner


As Faustus in An Apology for the Course and Outcome of Certain Event Delivered by Doctor John Faustus on This His Final Evening (Youngblood Theatre)

“Cotey’s Faustus can be ironic, funny and cagey, awakening echoes of Shakespeare’s clowns and Melville’s Bartleby. A jaw-dropping performance.”

- Mike Fischer, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel


“Cotey manages a nearly perfect balance of resonating with the deeper poetry of the script without compromising the casual nature of the atmosphere.”

- Russ Bickerstaff, Shepherd Express
