I have had the pleasure of seeing Scott Burns perform on a number of occasions – He amazed me in the Musical Assassins”. – He opened my eyes to a bigger world in the play “Educating Rita” – Introduced me, my family and friends to Shakespeare and he scared the hell out of me in Sweeney Todd! Scott amazes me with his ability to take on different roles. From the stage of the theatre to singing in a covers band at the Pub, Scott’s versatility for performance appears to have no limits!
