"Both DiPaolo and Holland give great performances in Owned; it’s clear that they have affection for each other but the motivations for their actions due to prior circumstances in their lives are also clear, making it almost impossible to take sides when situations get muddy. Both characters are clearly flawed but are also desperately searching for a way to find fulfillment in their lives."

New York Theater Review by Victoria Teague
“Don Dipaolo’s performance exudes power especially when displaying Vince’s inner conflicts, and his comedic timing was perfect. His portrayal as the disheveled playful addict, Vince, was direct, spiteful, and comical.”
– Tape by Stephen Belber ShortandSweetNYC.com review by Sahar Helmy
“Both Holland and DiPaolo played off one another very well, and I very much believed them in their roles. DiPaolo's performance gave so much life to Belber's often comic dialogue ("I'm not high and mighty. I'm too high to be high and mighty!" comes to mind), and had a great energy that played well against Holland's Jon.

“DiPaolo authentically captures Vincent’s dishevelment and desperation.”
–Tape By Stephen Belber Theatre is Easy Review by Adrienne Urbanski
“Don DiPaolo (Vince) and Neil Holland (Jon) are great together as two best frenemies. DiPaolo is particularly evocative as the skinny loser and conniver who has planned his moment of revenge for ten years, only to lose heart when push comes to shove.”
