"Steve Mazzoccone’s Mark Cohen is clear, vulnerable, and strong in his ability to carry the majority of the show’s narrative. Mazzoccone has a voice fit for Broadway, and his portrayal of Mark indicates a promising path for future endeavors in musical theater." - Reviewer Emilie Kefalas - The District- http://scaddistrict.com/2016/05/21/scad-performs-rent-in-honor-of-shows-20th-anniversary/
"A bold, tenacious actor, Steve is not afraid to jump into any role and take whatever risk is asked of him... Always reaching to better his performance, he continued to grow throughout the run and strove to understand the text and his choices more and more."
- Director Misti Wills
Currently on the film festival circuit, The Rest of Your Life, featuring Steve in leading role, has already won a Special Mention Award at the Miami International Film Festival, and Official Selection in the Orlando International Film Festival. It also won Best Live Action Short Film in the Forbes 30 under 30 Film Summit in Boston and won WonderRoot's Independent Film Series' Juror's Award.
The film's director says...
“Steve has a deep understanding of character development and what is needed to create and step into a character. He dove head-first into that process with Rest of Your Life and came up with something raw and wonderful. He truly brought our story to life. Steve is responsible, hard-working, serious about his craft, and a delight to work with. We were so lucky to have Steve as the hero in Rest of Your Life.” - Dir. of Rest of Your Life, Melanie Ho
UPDATE! Steve is now registered with the Society of American Fight Directors as an Actor Combatant, recently passing his proficiency tests in Unarmed Combat, Rapier Combat and Rapier/Dagger Combat.
