"Henry VIII is a fast moving chronicle of the king’s trials. The cast is ideally suited to their roles. David Foubert masters his role as a very robust, yet charming Henry. While Foubert succeeds at portraying this commanding character, he brings a real sense of humanity to the role. His contemplative disposition is particularly evident when he hears the pleadings of Catherine played by Jessica Wortham."

"BWW Reviews: HENRY VIII at STNJ is Outstanding Theatre"
"Managing the unmanageable: David Foubert, as company manager Pierre Laporte, and Lindsay Smiling are electrifying in the play’s most gut-wrenching scene, when Pierre and Ira’s long-standing friendship totally ruptures. In explosive, high-decibel, hurricane-force exchanges, their raw dialogue is frightening, disturbing. When thrown to the floor and about to be struck by Ira, his line “This is who you truly are!”, is psychologically shattering. Mr. Smiling perfectly conveys its nearly catatonic effects throughout the lengthy final scene change."

“Seething must-see racial drama—Lolita Chakrabarti’s ‘Red Velvet’ at Shakespeare Theatre”
"The dance where Henry meets Anne is brief, but their mostly silent interplay sizzles. Dressed in rich fabrics and colors by Hugh Hanson, the actors portray their characters with conviction and vigor. An always confident, at times surly Henry, David Foubert plays the king as a handsome though mercurial devil who passionately believes in whatever he is thinking at the moment."

Pageantry and Sizzling Romance in ‘Henry VIII’
"Smiling and Foubert boil over as they jab at each other while defending themselves, but their stirring performances make vivid that this is less a personal argument than it is deeply entrenched in layers of social, aesthetic, and historical struggle."

‘Red Velvet’ at Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey is a gripping history lesson
"The cast is superb… The three ghosts who speak (Christmas future never has too much to say) each managed to bring stunning elements. David Foubert as Marley was totally creepy and laser focused."

BWW Review: A CHRISTMAS CAROL at ACT
"Foubert nails the Martin-esque oblivious puffery while Skerritt is perfect as his peeved foil.” [in Patter for the Floating Lady] -- “Willie is seeking help to free his enslaved people, and he resurrects Blue’s brothers, Cisco and Sycamore (a rip-roaring David Foubert and a perpetually irritated Chris Ensweiler) to contribute to the freedom fighting.” [in The Unseen Hand]

"An uneven ‘Evening of One Acts’ at ACT Theatre"
"Battling “wild Indians” on several continents and heroically saving a charming Parsi young lady named Aouda (the gently radiant Maureen Sebastian) from being burned on the pyre, they come to near-mortal blows with an American troublemaker named Colonel Proctor. All the while they are tailed, unknowingly, by a Mr. Fix, a Scotland Yard detective who is chasing a reward, convinced that Mr. Fogg is really a notorious bank robber. Edmond Genest is rough and ready as the colonel, and David Foubert finds much humor in the double-talking lawman."
