THE SECRET GARDEN -- fan reviews

A slight review of Bob as Archibald Craven in the Sacramento Music Circus production of THE SECRET GARDEN. This man is amazing. He seems to be able to fit into "anyone's" shoes!! He was absolutely mesmerizing as Archie Craven and he played the character so dark it was wonderful. And his voice - he seems to gain power as time goes on. His inflections, his voice range, his attention to detail and formidable interpretation of the role were incredible. This man should continue to be a star for many, many years. He has so much to give to a part and to the audience. No one can touch him when he is in a show - he steals every scene. I was profoundly touched by his performance as Archibald. And wish that that version would be going "somewhere" - one week was not enough. I could see it again and again,   maybe just to hear him sing "Where in the World!" Once again I am in awe of Robert Cuccioli!!!                                                       10/18/99      Barbara M


"What a privilege it was to have seen 'The Secret Garden', to see Bob's moving portrayal of Archilbald Craven  - hearing him sing, his tremendous attention to detail, desperately seeking Lilly in the hallways of Misselthwaite, candelabra in hand, his free hand protecting the flames from being extinguished. 

Somehow, each evening, I was able to watch Archibald and Lilly sing their final song 'How Could I Ever Know', through eyes filled with tears.  After the first performance on Monday night, I was prepared with plenty of tissues."

How much fun to see his amusing interaction with Mary Lennox (Caitlin Caughell), and to see Bob in the role of the parent, singing a bedtime story to his beloved son.  'Race You to the Top of the Morning' though sung as a fairy tale, told the story of the dragon that represented both Archibald's pain of loss as well as Colins' illness.  Bob sang the song, with its widely varied range, beautifully!!!  He is the BEST!!!!!"

"No words can adequately express how utterly complete and astounding  Bob's performance was in The Secret Garden! His musical talent and acting abilities seem endless and continue to amaze me even after many visits to Jekyll and Hyde on Broadway. I will never forget my memory-filled trip to Sacramento and I'm counting the days to Enter The Guardsman."

"What a fantastic week! I would not have missed it for the world. A performance so achingly beautiful, grown men in the audience cried! I am still in total awe (a overused word but the only one that fits) of Bob's incredible talent. Even though I know "He's That Good!" Absolutely a once in a lifetime event. I feel so fortunate to have been able to be there.                                                                     8/10/99            Janet O.


"Bob's acting is very intense and sings beautifully - especially the high notes!"

"Robert Cuccioli, who was nominated for a Tony Award for his performance in Broadway's Jekyll & Hyde, steals nearly every scene with his intense, smoldering turn as a man tormented by the past."
