Southern Baptist Sissies:
The preacher booms about hellfire and damnation. (Taylor does a flawless job with this role)
Arkansas Times - August 28, 2008



Deathtrap:
Taylor, however, is brilliant as the dry-humored Sidney, charmingly cynical and vain, explaining with perfect timing that wry quip about why one of his plays had not been performed recently.
North Little Rock Times - June 19, 2003



Little Shop of Horrors:
In full command of Orin, Snip and Martin, Byron Taylor is a gas to the very end.
Benton Courier - October 27, 2002



Bill W. and Dr. Bob:
Taylor was a perfect casting choice for the handsome, charming Wilson, giving charisma to the character.
Arkansas Times, August 17, 2001
