"The one to beat is the least likely looking — the supremely confident William Barfee (pronounced Bar-fait, if you please), played to absolute perfection by Paul Urriola"

-Borak, Jeffrey. "The audience wins at Theater Barn's 'Spelling Bee'" The Berkshire Eagle 28 August 2018 : The Berkshire Eagle

"As the oddball character physically and vocally, Barfèe is played by Paul Urriola, who gives even his character’s nastiness a certain quality of aggressive charm. He gets to sing the best song in the score, “Magic Foot,” and he does a superb job with it"

-Bergman, J. Peter. "THEATRE REVIEW: the Theater Barn’s ‘Spelling Bee’ is lively, entrancing, plays perfectly." The Berkshire Edge 28 August 2018 ; The Berkshire Edge

"Paul Urriola, as Nicely-Nicely Johnson, is the comic relief throughout and his “Sit Down, You’re Rockin’ the Boat” in Act II is one of the best songs in the entire production; his energy and the choreography make for a fantastic spectacle"

-Durant, Amy. "'Guys and Dolls' is an end-of-summer delight." The Alt  28 August 2017: The Alt

"Paul Urriola, as Nicely-Nicely, grabs the moves and the notes and the energy and knocks our socks—and perhaps other items of our accoutrement—into the atmosphere. It’s theater"

-Bergman, J. Peter. "And if I Were  a Bell I'd Be Ringing." Berkshire Bright Focus 27 August 2017 : Berkshire Bright Focus
