"Nicholas McLean delights throughout, bouncing from playing attention seeking best friend Reggie to a bad boy ex of Casey’s and Aaron’s best friend Gabe desperately trying to get him to stick with the date."

“ Nicholas Mclean, as caretaker Gary Coleman, backs up comedy smarts with soaring vocals making Schadenfreude a highlight of the second act.”
“As for the human inhabitants of Avenue Q Nicholas McLean is one of the best Gary Coleman’s I’ve seen.”
