THE REVIEWS ARE IN......
"Josh Walker, who plays Gaston's sycophantic sidekick, Lefou, to absolute perfection."
"Gaston’s so extreme, he’s a riot, even though he uses his diminutive sidekick, Josh Walker’s loveable Lefou, as a punching bag"
"As Gaston’s sidekick, Josh is beaten up, thrown about and does more pratfalls than humanly possible, winning sustained laughter while doing so. His facial expressions are priceless, too. His comic timing is impeccable and he leads the chorus in “Gaston”
