"...Ethan Girard, played with deft humor by Michael J. Austin. Malcolm's Act II number, "You Walk with Me," in which he and Ethan declare their love is poignantly sung.", Carla Maria Verdino-Sullwold

"The sixth member of the group is played by the very talented Michael J. Austin playing Ethan Girard.  He is making his MSMT debut and is also the dance captain of THE FULL MONTY.  He has an amazing voice and is a talented actor.


One of the highlights was the song “You Walk With Me” which was sung by Ragsdale and Austin.  The vocals and harmony were perfect."


The Cryer, Charles Crosby
