You can also catch him on YouTube starring in the Streamy Award-nominated and International Online WebFest-nominated series Spring Street. [read more...]


"... Beck is a revelation..." – Broadway World

RED– "Beck is a revelation (and a delight) in the nimble navigation of his character's far-reaching arc, which courses from him wincing, whenever Rothko bellows with bloviating bravado, to Ken eventually growing a pair by unabashedly challenging the bullying mentor whose personal interest in Ken is zero."


"...He’d created such a completely other physical persona..." – The Front Row Center

Animals Out of Paper – "It is difficult to overpraise the cast...At the curtain call, just for a second, I looked at Beck and thought, who is this guy? He’d created such a completely other physical persona for Andy that I almost didn’t know him."


" amazing transformation..." – Hardwick Gazette

The Piano Teacher – “The ‘Piano Teacher’ is an artistic gem…David Beck does an amazing transformation as this menacing, musically talented young man with mood swings, within seconds, from moments of gentleness to an anger of frightening fury.”


"...very grounding..." –

Animals Out of Paper – "One of the strongest elements of this production is its stellar cast...David Beck as Andy works for every ounce of sympathy and endearment. He is very grounding throughout the play...when you have a cast of talented actors and a smart script, all you really need is an audience. I recommend that you provide that element to this production. It’s well worth it."


"...shines as the uncomprehendingly self-involved Matt..." – Backstage

The More Loving One – "David Beck shines as the uncomprehendingly self-involved Matt...Acted impeccably under the nuanced direction of Craig Baldwin, the show is, in a word, terrific."
