Jay McGill Reviews


The Wizard of Oz National Tour

"Jay McGill impresses as a deep-voiced Tin Man"

-The Cleveland Plain Dealer

 "McGill and Reynolds go full steam with their roles, grounding these silly tactics with plenty of heart and soul."  
-Buffalo News

" Reynolds was particularly entertaining with his limber dance moves, as [was] McGill’s “If I Only Had a Heart” interlude"

-DC Metro Theater Arts

"Also an asset is Jay McGill as the Tin Man"

-Boston Globe

" McGill’s Tin Man is quite handsome under his coat of armor."

-Atlanta Journal-Constitution

" Morgan Reynolds (Scarecrow), Jay McGill (Tin Man) and Aaron Fried (Lion) excelled in comic scenes."

-Omaha World-Herald  


CCM's Legally Blonde

"...height, width and depth were all that Dewey and Kyle had in  common when expert actor Jay McGill played both. Truly, theatergoers  would have never guessed that they were seeing the same actor if they  hadn’t consulted their programs, for McGill made each man that  distinctive."
-New York Theatre Critic Peter Filichia

"...the humorous highlight of the musical. McGill made the audience laugh every time he would walk on stage..."
-The News Record (Cincinnati)

"There are other performances worth nothing as well... Jay McGill as a hunky delivery man and Madeline Lynch, as the hairdresser whose heart he wins."


Arizona Broadway Theatre's South Pacific

"McGill is very good as the Lieutenant... his soaring voice achieves beautiful notes"

-Talkin' Broadway


Flatrock Playhouse's Clue the Musical

"Jay McGill confidently filled his place in the  ensemble as Mr. Green. He had an enormous swagger and was all sharp  corners and hard edges, and he and Nixon combined for one of the most  powerful duets of the evening."

-Hendersonville Lightning

"Mr. Green is played by newcomer Jay McGill, who does a nice job of  sliding the scale between being a green-suited conman and entrepreneur."
