"Alex Ates has oft proven to be one of the finest Shakespeareans on the local stage. As appalling a figure as Bertram is, Ates reveals what makes him tick - primarily an egoist who is slowly cut down, inch by inch, when faced with his own moral failings, as well as that of his closest comrades. – The Times-Picayune
"As the would-be young lover Slender, Alex Ates continues to show that he is growing into one of the finest Shakespeareans of his generation, with an innate sense of the language and ability to draw laughs from his mere delivery of the plainest of lines." – The Times-Picayune
"As Flute, the fairest of the Mechanicals doomed to play a rollicking Thisbe, Alex Ates steals the show, bringing a needed shot of energy to the final moments to push the show over the finish line. In recent years, Ates has consistently proven to be one of the festival’s rising young stars." – The Times-Picayune
"–it creates one of the play’s most touching and intimate moments between Neisler’s Brutus and Lucius, played beautifully by Alex Ates, a young actor who has repeatedly impressed in the festival’s previous productions." – The Times-Picayune
"The virtuoso piece of the night is Claverie’s maniacal dual father-son diatribe on why the neo-punk director got into theater in the first place — closely followed by Ates’ ill-timed a cappella rendition of 'Wicked’s' 'Defying Gravity.'" – The New Orleans Advocate
"The energy and playfulness that Brendan Bowen and Alex Ates bring to the title roles is palpable and contagious.'" – The Times-Picayune
"Alex Ates' Sir Andrew Aguecheek has the shaky 'ague' his name implies, along with a fey foppishness and quivering cowardice. Coupled with a brilliantined hairstyle reminiscent of Carl 'Alfalfa' Switzer of the 'Our Gang' comedies, Ates is a delight." – The Times-Picayune
