"The four leads are excellent, particularly Paul Coate's subtle take on the hapless Buddy."
MINNEAPOLIS STAR TRIBUNE about 'Follies' at Artistry
"Paul R. Coate's 'Buddy's Blues' is at once frought and fearlessly goofy."
ST PAUL PIONEER PRESS about 'Follies' at Artistry
"Paul R. Coate was the other strong vocalist, bringing a robust tenor, and perfectly capturing the stuffed shirt Mr. Snow." MINNEAPOLIS STAR TRIBUNE about 'Carousel' (concert version), Minnesota Orchestra
"Kersten Rodau and Paul R. Coate do marvelous things with Rodgers and Hammerstein's music."
ST PAUL PIONEER PRESS about 'Carousel' (concert version), Minnesota Orchestra
"Overheard in the audience: 'Mr. Snow has the best voice.'"
CHERRY AND SPOON about 'Carousel' (concert version), Minnesota Orchestra
"Kersten Rodau and Paul R. Coate are fine actors as well as singers, and present a winning counterpoint to the weighty woes of the star-crossed leads."
CLASSICAL MINNESOTA PUBLIC RADIO about 'Carousel' (concert version), Minnesota Orchestra
Paul R. Coate's performance as Cervantes/ Don Quixote/ Alonso Quijana is of Broadway quality."
THE DAILY RECORD about Man of La Mancha, University of Nebraska-Omaha (graduate thesis)
"Especially impressive was Paul R. Coate, who sang the role of Alfred P. Doolittle. His first-act number, "With A Little Bit Of Luck", was hilarious, and he finished the evening strongly with the crowd-pleasing "Get Me To The Church On Time". "Luck was one of the few numbers that featured dancing, and Coate's energetic steps added to the fun."
