Mid-Life! The Crisis Musical at the Alhambra Theatre & Dining in Jacksonville, FL:
"Man 3 (Mark Poppleton) in "My Lost Love", a ballad about a man losing is hair, was also very funny! Poppleton put so much emotion into the number, which made it even funnier for the audience."

Noises Off! at the Sierra Repertory Theater in Columbia, CA:
"As the harried-but-patient-beyond-compare director, Lloyd Dallas, Mark Poppleton is equal parts omnipotent master of everything and impotent lothario. Dallas has got so many women in the production strung along that by Act III everything unravels. Be ready for Poppleton's strong voice to ring out from the audience during Act I, because that's where the director sits during rehearsals most of the time.
My Fair Lady at the Sierra Repertory Theater in Sonora, CA:
"In an impressive performance, Mark Poppleton plays Col.Pickering, Higgins' more sympathetic cohort and partner in the experiment."

Sweeney Todd at Musical Theater Heritage in Kansas City, MO:
"The true demon of the story, however, is authoritative Judge Turpin, devilishly portrayed by Mark Poppleton. During his feature “Johanna: Mea Culpa” in the first act, the judge grapples with unspeakably immoral urges for his adopted “daughter.” Poppleton conveys Turpin’s repulsive malevolence with an aptly intense air of pure evil; his performance made my skin crawl (just as it should)."
