"Mark Coleman makes a wonderful wimp as Hennie's husband, worrying more about the baby than his elusive love life. He finally realises and comes running home to mother-in-law (Doreen Mantle) moaning that he doesn't like playing second fiddle, which prompts the wry aside from Mrs Berger, the instigator of his misery: “You don't even play in the orchestra.” (Daily Telegraph)


... It would be wrong not to single out the superb Mark Coleman. He gives a chilling and heart rending performance as a man who knows more than he is giving away. His control and sheer watch-ability are marvellous.  (BetrayalMail on Sunday

Prospero The Tempest (STG)


Mr Crocker- Harris in 'The Browning Version'
Andrew Crocker-Harris The Browning Version(Arches)
... Coleman's first-rate acting, all lurching eyebrows and flailing impotence, accomplishes the strong Max that makes any production of The Homecoming tick. Edinburgh Guide

... Mark Coleman's Prospero is utterly convincing. You feel the multifarious emotions in his eyes emanating from the stage in waves. (The Tempest) Telegraph

Leontes in The Winter's Tale
Leontes The Winter's Tale (One Academy, Scottish tour)
... Coleman is stunning as Stomil... His relaxed acting and loveable wackiness make him stand out.                 (TangoThe Skinny

Backpacker in 'Backpacker'
Backpacker Backpacker (Tron, Academy films)
... Mr Coleman is a comic delight. He gives Spooner an arm-waiving feyness accompanied by a less than testosterone-filled speech impediment that suits the character perfectly    (No Man's LandDaily Mail

Angelo in 'Measure for Measure'
Angelo Measure for Measure (Shakespeare's Globe)
... Mark Coleman really puts some juice in his performance and is terrific... prowling the stage with clenched fists. (12 Angry Men)    Glasgow Herald

Juror #3 12 Angry Men (Theatrefusion tour)
... Mark Coleman is excellent as pure self-pitying whipped cur. (Awake and Sing!)  Independent
Mark Coleman as King Lear
Lear King Lear (Ramshorn Theatre)
Coleman's acting is first rate, and at times almost breath-taking, sending shivers rippling down the spine.  (12 Angry Men) The Scotsman

Larry in 'Closer'
Larry Closer (Theatrefusion tour)
... Coleman allows the character's tight smile to crack very satisfyingly, revealing an unpleasant mixture of misogyny and resignation. (Betrayal) The Stage

Max The Homecoming STG

... Central to the success of the show is Mark Coleman's compelling performance as Robert.     (Betrayal)     Mail on Sunday
