"Figaro is played by Atlanta native Joseph Lattanzi. He is more than up for the task ... his presence on stage is like a warm glow. His voice is stellar. His acting is top notch. He can garner a snicker from the audience with just a facial expression. He doesn’t as much command the stage, as integrate with it, letting his skills play off those of the other performers."
