"Benton and the rest of the cast inhabit many characters, changing from one costume to another, not to mention the (various) characterizations that go with each one. Benton, excels as the joking showman, Keith, of “Keith’s Music Theatre;” as the soft-spoken Eddie Woods; and, of course, as the disarming Bob Hope. It is in the latter role, though, that Benton is able to convey his amiability and charisma to the fullest extent, while at the same time expertly filling the tap shoes of one of the most celebrated entertainers of all time." - L.A. Excites
"Benton is one of the best Phil's I have ever seen in a production of 'White Christmas', and when he and Sheehan dance together they truly give you your money's worth! If you truly love "tap" numbers, you are in for a real treat. Not only is "I Love a Piano" one of the best numbers in the show, "The Best Things Happen While You're Dancing" is a true classic for tap lovers.
