"... while she relayed key information to Flora enthusiast Eldon Pike, played by Colum Parke Morgan. Morgan's excitement in the hunt for information about Flora's life, moved the audience to excitement to learn more as well."
Playing Eldon Pike in Austin Shakespeare's Indian Ink, by Tom Stoppard.
“When casting the role of Leonard, performed on Broadway by such luminaries as Jeff Goldblum and the late Alan Rickman, it’s paramount that the actor be a bastion of charisma. The character is often so cavalier, cut-throat, and even reprehensible, that without inherent charm the character could become intolerable. It’s to our benefit, then, that they brought in Colum Parke Morgan for the role, a ball of pure charm, who practically stole the show in Austin Shakespeare’s production of Much Ado About Nothing. When he lambastes the other characters’ writing, he’s somehow able to make us both hate him, understand him, and at times even believe him. He has the ability to deliver an insult as if it’s a compliment, with even his most cutting critiques coming off more as tough love than out-and-out harassment. Part of this stems from Rebeck’s intelligent writing for the character, but Morgan certainly brings his own attitude to the role, able to seem both carefree and delicate simultaneously throughout.”
“Morgan is spot on as the frustrated Caleb, trying to make ends meet since the town mill has shut down.”
“Perhaps the gem of the production—for what else does one call the lead in a parade of buffoonery, but a gem—is the character of Thomas Dickinson played with absolutely no restraint by Colum Parke Morgan.”
