Stephen Sondheim's Final Musical
"Flipping fast from despair to delight, he wears the character's innocence brightly... he is a born rock crooner, pulling all the stops. As partners (with Diana Huey), the two quickly grab our hearts".
"Carter plays Sonny as a knock-kneed dreamer with a can't-hold-me-back smile. The voice that bursts out of him is unexpectedly rich, and as the show progresses, he reveals himself as a multi-layered actor".
"Leading the cast as Berger is Adante Carter and he was everything! Adante is giving you Prince level showmanship and keeps the show moving. Carter’s got this enigmatic and electric approach to Berger that you’ll never forget."
"Mr. Carter was the best damn thing on that stage...they should give him any part"
