NEWS & UPDATES
Nicholas joins the lineup for 'West End Acoustic' at Riverside Studios in Hammersmith on December 6th.
Nicholas McLean takes home the gong for 'Best Supporting Actor in a musical' for his performance in Wicked.
"To be able to be in a room with people who look like you and celebrate your collective success is one of the most electrifying experiences. Growing up and being told that life would automatically be harder for you because of the colour of your skin makes recognising our collective achievements all the more rewarding"
Nicholas makes his West End debut in The Book of Mormon. He will take over the role of 'The Doctor' from June 20th.
"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."
"Benny (Nicholas McLean, sweet-voiced), the butcher’s dippy son. McLean becomes a puppeteer in charge of a cutesy large black rat that runs riot on the town’s winter solstice food display, without anyone raising issues such as Weil’s disease."
