for The radicalization of Rolfe (2016 NY Fringe Overall Excellence Award)

“Alex J. Gould is both enticing and resolute as Johan Schmidt" - DC Metro Theater Arts

“Gould gives a standout performance; his playfulness and presence in the given circumstances are notable in a role where playing the problem might be an easy trap." - Theater is Easy

For The Woodsman

"...the intoxicating charm and artistry of this off-Broadway diamond in the rough are only more radiant than they were the first time around."

"Lederer, Will Gallacher, and Alex J. Gould become the joyfully synchronized team of tinsmiths, percussively rebuilding our protagonist before our eyes... The performers share a common breath as they collectively establish the show's meticulously designed rhythms." - TheaterMania

"The story is told with a troupe of actors and some simple but effective theatrical flourishes. Think Cheek By Jowl or Peter and the Starcatcher...Alex J. Gould caught my eye in various parts. This just proves Ortiz is smart enough to surround himself with talent." - Huffington Post

For the Mysteries

"Alex J. Gould, Rory Kulz, and Eliza Simpson offer some of the hilarious comic relief in their various roles...The Mysteries is a beautifully triumphant event of epic proportions." - Theater in the Now

"Nick Jones’s rendering of the Hagar and Ishmael tale as a “Duck Dynasty” outtake is lively...Tellingly, the evening’s most ecstatic moment comes between the scenes when all of the actors join in a gorgeous, floor-shaking rendition of the Killers’ “All These Things That I’ve Done.” It is a very joyful noise." - New York Times

For Kapow-i gogo

"Rounding out the cast is Alex J. Gould in a high-climbing bit as Koffley the Jester but his work as fight choreographer does not go unnoticed." - Theater in the Now
