HERE AND BEYOND (2019) a film by Colin West
Best Actor Sci-Fi Short – Greg Lucey in Here & Beyond – Miami International Science Fiction Film Festival
“‘Here & Beyond’ starts as a playful, amusing and educational science program but soon it becomes the emotional and human story about a man whose time is running out but whose love for his wife is stronger than his illness…In a film like this, in which you can find storytelling in its purest form, human emotions and facial expressions are key. With more than sixty credits behind his name…Greg Lucey (‘Sleepwalk’, ‘Celluloid Dreams’) is the perfect leading man in this film. You can read the pain, the grief but also hope and love just by looking at him…Even if you don’t have a particular interest in science, you’ll adore this film.” — Liselotte Vanophem, Just Celebrity Magazine
“Here & Beyond is a lovely short film that gives some wonderful hope to a person with a serious degenerative condition. Lucey is delightful as Mac, a sensitive soul, pining for his partner… If you get the chance, see Here & Beyond, you won’t regret it.” — OC Movies.
“Here and Beyond is about the characters themselves. Mac and his wife Ruth, played by Greg Lucey and Christine Kellogg-Darrin, had such a wonderful chemistry on the small screen in the videos of the science shows that Mac watches that, even though we never saw them together outside of that, you could easily believe theirs was a loving relationship and see why he missed her so much. Greg Lucey himself was superb as Mac on his own too, in many ways he reminded me of the much missed John Hurt both physically and in his ability to play engagingly emotive characters without much need for words.” — Susan Ormand, Dream Cage
SLEEPWALK (2019), a film by Filipe Melo
Sophia Award – Best Narrative Short – “Portugal’s most important film award.”
“In ‘Sleepwalk’, apple pie is at the center of the journey for Lloyd Jenkins (Greg Lucey). With a cowboy hat and a semblance that carries a certain sobriety and mystery, the personage effectively interpreted by Greg Lucey drives hundreds of miles for an apple pie… It would not be good to reveal here what happens in this story. What we can say is that we find humanity, the love of a mother for her child, as well as a desire to bring a brief and sweet comfort to a bitter and cruel destiny.” — Review by Anibal Santiago, Portugal
THE WICKED END, Well Dang! Productions
“You are a Marvel and are nominated for Best Actor Short.” – Convergence 2018 – Miami International Sci-Fi Film Festival.
REVELATOR, a J. Van Auken Film
“Greg Lucey does his best to channel the Hammer Horror greats as Old Man Carmine, which is definitely not a bad thing.” – J.B. Spins, New York, NY
“The role of Carmine Bellvue is well acted by Lucey who brings a gravitas to the proceedings.” (Dave Cliffe, The Slaughtered Bird)
“How hard was it to find actors to fit the roles in this film? …incredibly lucky, especially with Greg Lucey who came in, who was the last guy of the day. It was not a good day and he came in and saved the whole thing.” – J. Van Auken, interview by M.L. Miller.
“GREG LUCEY’s powerful performance as the contemporary Thompson is eloquent without words.” – Joe Bendel
EVER SINCE THE WORLD ENDED (A Cal Grant Film)
“You don’t always need to view things in a movie to actually see them, especially if you have great actors. GREG LUCEY wonderfully depicts life on a trading floor when the world started to fall apart. He talks of the tote board and its plummeting numbers and the crest fallen faces of his co-workers. His retelling was entirely believable.” -Brian Hughs, Entertainment Insiders.
WAITING FOR GODOT (Subterranean Shakespeare)
“GREG LUCEY is a master stylist, clearly accomplished in mime, clowning and vaudeville. He uses Chaplinesque postures and nails his line readings, varying his tone from puzzlement to despair to outrage, and he almost always gets a laugh.” -Joe Mader, SF Weekly.
BAR NONE (ODAAT Productions)
“GREG LUCEY is hilarious as the nerd.” – Dean Goodman, Drama-Logue.
“GREG LUCEY is hysterically funny. He bumbles, he stutters and delivers lines with the rapid-fire precision of a Morse code operator.” – Barbara Bladen, Times Live Arts Editor.
“As a nerdy assistant to a city supervisor, GREG LUCEY is a festival of uncoordinated tics.” – Drama-Logue.
THE DEAD MONKEY (Genesius Productions)
“GREG LUCEY does very good work as the vet, creating a rather nerdy character who is quite amusing.” – Dean Goodman, Drama-Logue.
“LUCEY’S turn as the vet oozes nerdy dedication.” – SF Bay Guardian.
“LUCEY as the vet provided a zany Buck Henry-ish sort of balance.” – Marie Coates.
EISENHOWER HOUR (ODAAT Productions)
“GREG LUCEY has a comic gift for Freudian slips.” – Robert Herwitt, San Francisco Chronicle.
“GREG LUCEY makes numerous Freudian slips in a pitch-perfect deadpan. At one point, faced with a heckler, Lucey looks out, gimlet–eyed, and retorts, “I’m told some day there will be a man on the moon. I hope it’s you.” – Kerry Reid
MEDEA, THE MUSICAL (Theater Rhino)
“GREG LUCEY is uproarious in his extended walk-ons.” – Talkin’ Broadway.
AMNESIA (Theater Rhino)
“GREG LUCEY is very good as a Hollywood producer (I keep thinking I am seeing Bruce Weitz from Hill Street Blue on the small stage.)” – Richard Connema, San Francisco Entertainment.
HONEYMOON SUITE (Theater Rhino)
“As the priest, GREG LUCEY leaves you wanting more.” – Chad Jones, Oakland Tribune
LOOT (Shotgun Players)
“As MacLeavy GREG LUCEY does a solid job as a sheep among wolves—by turns irascible, cowering, and indignant, he gains the audience’s sympathy for the sucker he will turn out to be.” – Lisa Drostova, East Bay Express
“LUCEY’S decrepit old MacLeavy is perfectly dense.” – Bay Area City Search
THE SKRIKER (Shotgun Players)
“Creeping around the stage the actors conjure up tricks including a Dionysian feast of cannibals. Scarier still is the gargoyle figure (GREG LUCEY) that silently observes Lily and Josie at home.” – Steve Winn, SF Bay Guardian.
AS YOU LIKE IT (Shotgun Players)
“GREG LUCEY proves that any character—whether a lord attending the Duke or a mere country dweller can—steal the show. The audience embraced LUCEY with bellows of laughter that echoed through John Hinkel Park. LUCEY impresses us by his ability to portray two characters that have few lines in the play, yet they are the characters we remember the most.” – Celine Sabatte, St. Mary’s College
