“He’s a star … and stars are undeniable.”

Lonny Barnett on rock star Stacee Jaxx
(Rock of Ages)

“Pereira is pitch-perfect in both his cheeky egomania and vocal performances.”The Buffalo News
“Plays a burned-out rock god with comic decadence.”Winnipeg Free Press
“Definitely has the abs and voice of a rock star.”The Rover (Montreal)
“The ‘real’ rock star of the show . . . his version of ‘Wanted Dead Or Alive’ is worth seeing the show itself . . . he plays his part perfectly (perhaps Tom Cruise should have been his understudy for the role) with the right level of raunchy vs. sweetness . . . definitely a favorite of the ladies.”Yahoo.com
“An absolutely authentic rock charisma and crassness that makes him very funny . . . he doesn’t just nail ‘Wanted Dead or Alive,’ HE IMPALES IT!”Edmonton Journal
“Pereira’s vocals could easily be compared to those of any 80’s rock legend. His interpretation of ‘Wanted Dead Or Alive’ (Bon Jovi) is simply superb.”BroadwayWorld.com (Miami)
“As rock god Stacee Jaxx, Universo Pereira lovingly sends up the 80s frontmen douchebags without impersonating them . . . he creates a believable, enjoyable character out of the standard rocker clichés of sex, drugs, alcohol, and ego, and he’s got an awesome rock voice to go with his strong acting abilities.

“Universo Pereira has a fantastic voice.”EU Jacksonville
“Everything the part calls for and more . . . outlandish, flamboyant, and pretty much a womanizing mess . . . his vocals are powerful.”The Rogers Revue (Virginia)
“A magnetic performing style . . . and humorous because he delivers Stacee Jaxx’s egotistical but banal musings with a straight face.”
South Bend Tribune
“An oh-so-slithery Universo Pereira more than holds his own with the anthems.”Sioux City Journal
“Stacee Jaxx has to be outrageous and that’s what Pereira gives us in this ribald performance.”Calgary Sun
“Despite the character’s sleazy nature, Pereira makes him enjoyable to watch.”BroadwayWorld.com (Sacramento)
“His arrogant strut and powerful performance of ‘Wanted Dead Or Alive’ was a fan favorite.”CityGirlScapes (Toronto)
“Thank goodness the costume designer rarely covers his rippling abs and rock hard chest.”FAB Magazine (Toronto)
“Cross Bret Michaels with David Lee Roth and you’ll get an idea of the big hair and big sounds that he is channeling in his performance.”Rapid City Journal
“Played Stacee Jaxx naturally with self-absorbed sleaze.”Lehigh Valley Music
