THE LEGEND OF GEORGIA MCBRIDE

"Phillip Cole White is the menacing and manipulative Caldwell B. Cladwell, who due to the smart costume design evokes images of Batman’s Joker circa 1960. There’s nothing like a good villain, and it’s clear by his winks and wry smiles that WHITE DELIGHTS IN THE ROLE. He plays Cladwell as a cartoony, sneaky, evil tyrant whose appetite for money is rivaled only by his penchant for secretaries in miniskirts. VILLAINS ARE RARELY AS ENTERTAINING AS THIS.”
THE 25TH ANNUAL PUTNAM COUNTY SPELLING BEE
(ONSTAGE IN BEDFORD)
"WHITE TAKES THE TITLE OF SHOW-STEALER with his humorous portrayal of the begrudged Mahoney. In a role typically played as a black character, the ironically named White fills the role as more of a emo-punkish juvenile delinquent type. Any number of reasons could have contributed to the director’s choice to go against demographic casting. On the simplest level, it may have been a dearth of black auditioners. But, more likely it was the complexity White gave the character. Starting as a reluctant multiple offender, Mahoney eventually finds gratification in his role and truly surrenders himself to the dejected spellers and the audience.”
"Phillip Cole White, in full Goth mode, conceives a perpetual sight gag as the comfort counselor (working off his community service) who bequeaths each contestant a hug and juice box when they are eliminated from the bee.”
"MR. WHITE MAKES A STRONG IMPRESSION AS MAHONEY, The Official Comfort Counselor, who hands out juice boxes to contestants who misspell their words. He also takes a hilarious 180 degree turn as one of Logainne’s gay dads.”
"THE STANDOUT IS PHILLIP COLE WHITE as Kimberly’s high school love interest, Jeff. His line deliveries as an overly perceptive teen-age boy are HYSTERICAL, like the best-written characters his age on any number of WB dramas.”
