I Love You, You’re perfect, Now Change (Coastal Repertory- Half Moon Bay)


“Zachary Padlo delights with his rendering of the stuff of being a guy and an overall mastery of comedy”- HMB review

West Side Story (Broadway by the Bay- Redwood City, CA)


“Other standout roles among the exceptionally solid company of 40 players include Jets leader Riff (a commanding Zachary Padlo); top Shark Bernardo (the always wonderful Alex Rodriguez); his girlfriend Anita (a fiery Taylor Iman Jones); Anybodys (wonderfully versatile Jessica Rose Maxey); some Jets (Mike Birr, Patrick Brewer, Danila Burshteyn), some Sharks (Javi Harnley, Neal Pascua), their girls (Camille Edralin, Mary Kalita) and some grown-ups (Wes Chick, Ray D’Ambrosio)” – SF Examiner

As Riff, the rival Jets’ leader, Zachary Padlo is possibly the best dancer in the show — and that’s saying something, considering how many excellent dancers there are here. At times, Padlo looks as if he’s practically floating.- San Jose Mercury News

Kiss me Kate  (Broadway by the Bay- Redwood City, CA)


“…excellence prevails in routines that are often physically demanding and athletic as well as beautiful and mesmerizing. Leah Shesky, Zach Padlo, Marc Gonzalez, and Charles Fields knock "Tom, Dick, or Harry" out of the ballpark with cartwheels, fast dance steps, and a fun line-up of three solid singing voices to woo Bianca to "marry me, marry me, marry me." Zach Padlo returns in his Shakespearean role of Lucentio to one of the night's true highlights, "Bianca," as he sings with pleasing voice and dances with suave, sexy, and scorching moves. He is ably joined by a line of eight women who echo his lyrics, whistle in accompaniment, and move with fine-tuned coordination.”- San Jose Mercury News

A Few Good Men (Hilbarn Theater- Foster City, CA)


“Zach Padlo is the zealously determined, floor-pacing prosecutor, Lt. Jack Ross, who believes ardently in saving face for the military, would rather plea bargain than pursue the case, but is key on winning with a precise line of attack once forced onto the courtroom arena.” – Talkin’ Broadway



“Gorrebeeck, Starling, Yvette, and in fact the whole company show a level of acting well above their rank or pay grade. This is a story with important parallels in today’s messy political climate. It deserves to run past the election.” –Regarding Arts
