"...fantastic..." – Broadway World
The Book of Mormon – "Understudy Evan Lennon took on the role of the goofy Elder Cunningham at the performance I saw, and he was fantastic. Lennon has a great elasticity to his movements, and it's particularly fun to see him strut on stage with his scrawny stature and Star Wars backpack. Together, McLellan and Lennon are a great study in contrasts for the show's dynamic duo."
"...a gifted comedian and singer..." – Chicago Theatre Review
The Book of Mormon – "He shares the stage with Evan Lennon, a gifted comedian and singer, making his National Tour debut. He plays McLellan’s geeky, naive and eager-to-please sidekick, Elder Arnold Cunningham. Mr. Lennon is strong, talented and likable and makes this role all his own. The young Thespian has excellent comic instincts and terrific timing and knows how to deliver a line, not to mention his gift as a singer and dancer. Evan Lennon effortlessly brings his own nerdy quirks, a dorky smile and lovable charisma to this role."
