"Jay Paul Smith is a big audience favorite as the sweetly stupid brother Jim."

"As Ivan, Jay Smith...is wonderfully moving."

-Review of 'Art' from the Pittsburgh City Paper, May 19, 2004


"[Jay] Smith did an excellent job of portraying the character that some critics say was written about Simon himself.  Smith was realistic in the part, and had the audience believing real-life situations were coming to life on the stage."

"Jay Smith as Harry Cross is an actor who understands that less is more, executing his role with deft economy.  As the Raven, his curled hands become talons, quick bird-like movements grow sharp and distinct and his eyes harden."

-Review of 'The Raven' from the Pittsburgh City Paper, May 2, 2002


"Jay Smith's Geoffrey changes sides effortlessly and without remorse."

"Jay Smith's Timmy still has a baby face, and though it's sometimes hard to see the resonance of the war in him, he gets the period very well, particularly in his insolent drunkenness.  His role is the thankless author stand-in, but manages to make us like him anyway."

-Review of 'The Subject Was Roses" from the Pittsburgh Post Gazette, November 28, 1997


"Rob Gorman and Jay Smith [as Marc] have mastered the European snub, calmly affronting each other with crueler and crueler observations. "

"Jay Smith led a talented cast...providing many stand out moments."

-Review of 'The Marriage of Bette and Boo' from the Pittsburgh City Paper, August 11, 1999


"[Jay Smith's] Leon...proves to be an appealing combination of schlemiel and romantic do-gooder."

-Review of 'Fools' from the Observer-Reporter, July 14, 2000
