I'm Just Saying...
The Odd Couple

Treasure Island: A New Musical

Finger Lakes MTF

    • Barbara Adams, Ithaca Times

  • ​"Jimmy Bain – as the coming of age character Jim Hawkins – presents himself well in the role. He acts it well, moves across stage swiftly, and has a wonderful voice and facial expressions."
    • Natasha Ashley, NY Theatre Guide
  • "...Jim Hawkins (Jimmy Bain) is a perfect youthful hero: intelligent, watchful, fearless. He also has a wonderful Broadway voice as we hear in the duet “Sail” with his mother,Victoria Huston-Elem... [and in] An even stronger duet...with Long John, “Never Seen Good.”
    • James MacKillop, Syracuse New Times​
Monomoy Theatre 2013

Death of a Salesman

    • Johanna Crosby, Wicked Local Orleans

  • ​"Jimmy Bain is utterly engaging as Charley's nerdy, smartest kid in class son... Bain's characterizations are infectious and perfectly played."

    • Joan Tacke Aucoin, Cape Cod Chronicle

 

  • "I've been complimenting Jimmy Bain for his infectious smile all summer. It all comes home when Jimmy impersonates the great comedian Joe E. Brown... Bain is a hilarious guy and keeps the laughs coming!"

  • "Jimmy Bain's youthful presence is as refreshing as a cool breeze off a lake in summer. His enthusiastic "Try Me" in Act Two felt more like an unstoppable boy than it did a song." -J. Peter Bergman, Berkshire Bright Focus
