Actor. Singer. Dancer. Patrick Scott McDermott is a dynamic entertainer who loves to make people smile. He is currently playing Gavroche in the National Tour of Les Misérables.
"[The show includes] the gifted and winsome young Patrick Scott McDermott, as JoJo. This 9-year-old actor is, hands-down, the best actor I’ve ever seen in this role."
"Young Patrick Scott McDermott [is] a terrific Artful Dodger. This very likable, absolutely dynamic talent easily owns the stage in every scene. Master McDermott has the right look, size and demeanor to play opposite Edgar and the other boys. And did I mention that this young man can sing and dance like a young Gene Kelly? There’s a reason why he’s Fagin’s favorite little thief."
"This is truly appropriately youthful casting, and Bowling found in these actors exactly what he needed whether it was Edgar’s sheer innocence magnifying every emotion or McDermott’s cagey and clever (but still so childlike) take on one of Dickens’s most memorable characters."
"And there is scene stealer Patrick Scott McDermott as Charlie Winslow, a very young bank messenger who tells it as he sees it, McDermott who has appeared at Drury Lane Theatre and Music theater works, proves the old adage that if you don’t want to be upstaged, don’t play alongside a talented child actor"
“Speaking of show stoppers, there are two characters in this story that will warm your heart, make you laugh and have you applauding after every scene they do. The first one is a little boy, Charlie Winslow ( Patrick Scott McDermott is adorable), who delivers messages from his scooter that are hysterical.”
“Young Patrick Scott McDermott is dynamic and hilarious as 10-year-old Charlie Winslow, one of Linda Mason’s students. His energetic presence, dry delivery of dialogue, precise comic timing and his talent as a young singer and dancer brought him applause with every scene. This little actor is a force to watch.”
