Kinky Boots, First National Tour

Other memorable characterizations come from Andrew Scanlon as macho factory worker Don. Scanlon was subbing on Tuesday night, but I cannot imagine anyone playing the part better

Another standout was Andrew Scanlon as the dead body. He spends most of the time on stage in a state of floppiness, manhandled by Willey and George who at various times are either hanging him up in the closet or folding him into a wheelchair... Scanlon plays a great dead body which can't be an easy role

The Drowsy Chaperone, Drayton Entertainment

There are so many richly funny characters in this musical with a highlight being Andrew Scanlon as the self-proclaimed lady's man, Latin lover Adolpho... a buffoon in a cape and over-the-top funny

- Valerie Hill, Waterloo Record

As Adolpho, Andrew Scanlon is fully over the top which is just as it should be!

I Love You, You're Perfect Now Change
​Stage West Calgary

Andrew Scanlon is kind of an Everyman — often he holds the stage with a bit of a Nathan Lane presence — alternately funny, sympathetic and bewildered. His performance of "Shouldn’t I Be Less In Love With You" is the most poignant moment in the show, as he muses on his wife and their lengthy marriage. Then he rips up the show as a convict in "Scared Straight", an unlikely matchmaking service provided by the prison system. 

-Dan St. Yves, Calgary Herald






Near the end of the show, Scanlon realizes he is still in love with his wife after 30 years and he knocks the poignant ballad "Shouldn't I be Less in Love With You?" right out of the park.
Scanlon also steals the scene at a lecture on how to meet your perfect partner. Scanlon is their guest speaker, a serial killer, who scares them straight into getting engaged.

Moonlight & Magnolias,
Sudbury Theatre Centre

It was Andrew Scanlon as David O. Selznik who absolutely ran away with the show. Jumping from authoratative studio boss, to desperate producer, to Scarlett O'Hara herself, and finally, a very humble and good human being, Scanlon was the ultimate straight man to many wild personalities, while still providing many of the laughs himself...
Scanlon delivers perhaps the finest performance I've seen in Sudbury.

A Christmas Carol, Neptune Theatre​

Disagreeable as Scrooge is, his put-upon clerk Bob Cratchit (Andrew Scanlon), tries to reach out... Scanlon gives Cratchit, who might otherwise be too good to be believed, a welcome touch of mischievousness

The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee​ Sudbury Theatre Centre

It is no longer surprising that even among highly skilled performers, Andrew Scanlon deftly steals any show he's in. 
Here, Scanlon plays the most cliché of characters, yet imbibes it with a freshness and originality that is every bit as entertaining as the first time you saw this socially awkward nerd.
