Honest, sincere normal voice, with a wide range
As a stage actor, I have a fairly wide range, strong projection and clarity and a mid-range voice that I can take down or up comfortably. My normal voice would best be described as pleasant, sincere and believable. As noted in a review below, I can sound like Charlton Heston or Don Knotts.
“What makes "God's Favorite" work is the character of Sidney Lipton. Rick Padden plays him with terrific confidence, relish and flair. As the man in the middle, Padden blusters, pontificates and harangues, projecting his lines like guided missiles.” – Phyllis Walbye, The Loveland Reporter-Herald
“Of particular note is the character of the messenger Lipton, played brilliantly by Rick Padden. Like some weird cross between Don Knotts and Charlton Heston’s Moses, Lipton asks questions of Joe that the more skeptical among us always wanted to ask Joe… With the exception of Padden, the cast seems to have chosen to create characters less grounded in nuanced reality than in melodrama.” – Trevor Jackson, Fort Collins Weekly
“Padden has a good sense of comedy and timing and a very expressive face. His Geronte is fun to watch – Phyllis Walbye, the Loveland Reporter-Herald
