"MR. GOULET DAZZLED BOSTONIANS AT THE SCHUBERT THEATRE AS LANCELOT OF "CAMELOT"

He walked on stage in a suit of dazzling armor to sing on top of his dazzling voice, the bragging, blustering, egomaniacal, ballad "C’est Moi," the chandeliers lighted up by themselves and the joint jumped, a rare thing in Boston." BOSTON RECORD AMERICAN 1960

 

SHINING MOMENTS ON STAGE AT NEW HAVEN'S SHUBERT THEATRE

Goulet who turns 60 next months, is at the center of the production. With that magnificent vocal instrument he has the ability to shake a rafter or two, as he does with the chorus of how to handle a woman. It is difficult at first to adjust to Goulet as King Arthur, After all, he made an indelible impression on the role of Lancelot, which launched his career three decades ago. Still, the 59-year old Goulet plays the reluctant king with a youthful exuberance, and the maturing king with a will and passion.

New Haven Register, Robert Viagas October 7, 1993. 

 

"GOULET ADDS HIS MAGIC TO CAMELOT" 

"To hear Goulet sing the title song, Camelot, is a treat. His robust voice still can belt out a song. His delivery in the end of the first act was magic."

Memphis, The Commercial Appeal, Wed June 9, 1993

 

GOULET'S VOICE LIFTS 'LA CAGE'

If any singer can wrap his voice around a glorious Jerry Herman melody,

it's Robert Goulet, one of the last booming baritones of Broadway's Golden Age.Goulet's version of ''Song on the Sand,'' a lushly romantic declaration of love, is a standout.

Michael Kuchwara Drama Critic ASSOCIATED PRESS 2005

"Robert Goulet reached his maturity as a dramatic performer and musical comedy figure in a strong sensitive portrayal of Bigelow, the luckless carousel barker... Goulet’s "Soliloquy" anticipating what his unborn child will be like, was outstanding... The Armstrong Company showed class and taste..."

LOS ANGELES TIMES Monday, May 8, 1967 - Don Page

 

 "Mr. Goulet, surely one of the finest voices to be on our musical comedy stage, is splendid..." 

NEW YORK TIMES For Mr. Goulet’s Tony Award performance in "The Happy Time 1968"

 

"His resonant baritone voice filled the hall. Though his rendition of "Some Enchanted Evening" set the appropriate mood for the evening, it was the poignant, "This Nearly Was Mine" that prompted a long ovation from the appreciative audience. But a good singer is not enough to carry the role of Emile de Becque. It takes a singer who is equally adept at acting and Goulet handles both with ease." 

THE DAILY OKLAHOMAN -1988

 

"GOULET'S BOYISHLY APPEALING ARTHUR

ASCENDS TO 'CAMELOT THRONE' 

As a King Arthur of indeterminate age, he still radiates considerable magnetism. There is an aura of innocence about Goulet that makes his characterization so appealing. Goulet's strong personality brings a distinctively human dimension to the role."
