"Andrea Canny rules Garden's 'Gypsy' in a blaze of glory"
Broadway World Review:
"Rose Has One Hell of a Turn in GYPSY at Garden Theatre"
"Canny, in fact, gets to play deliciously broadly, swigging that chardonnay, drooling over Hugh and acting as a master of ceremonies for the audience."~ Matt Palm, Orlando Sentinel

Brad Haynes of 105.1 LOVES Spank! Click here for his rave review!
"Canny, who was hysterical in the Disney princess spoof, Disenchanted, which played at The Abbey this past fall, is perfect for the role of blousy, middle-aged writing hobbyist EBJ. She also takes on other characters in the story, including the strictly non-PC, yet hilarious character of Tasha’s other man, Jose. Canny also proves herself to be an improvisational wonder, throwing out plenty of hilarious situation-based non-scripted one liners."
"...Andrea Canny, fresh off the title role in "Lizzie Borden," who makes the Little Mermaid a boozy delight."~ Matt Palm, Orlando Sentinel
Andrea Canny plays Belle and The Little Mermaid. When looked at from the non-fantastical point of view, it is no wonder that both characters are drawn to insanity. Canny just finished starring in LIZZIE BORDEN: THE MUSICAL, seems to have a knack for crazy characters."
"And every time always-awesome Andrea Canny steps on stage, either as a Baby Jane-insane Belle or alcoholic Ariel, she brings down the house."
~ Seth Kubersky, Orlando Weekly
"Backing them are outrageous Andrea Canny covering the loony Belle and the drunk-on-oxygen Little Mermaid."
~ Carl F. Gauze, Archikulture Digest
"Included in that menagerie of princesses are Belle and The Little Mermaid, both played with maniacal glee by the outrageous Andrea Canny. Just wait until you see what use an inebriated Little Mermaid finds for her infamous clam shell!"
~ Mix 105.1
A New Musical
Book & Lyrics by Michael Wanzie
Music by Rich Charron
Directed by Kenny Howard
"In the title role, Andrea Canny shrewdly pulls off Lizzie's contradictory personality. Canny gives us a Lizzie who's likeable yet aloof, hard as nails yet vulnerable."
~ Matt Palm, Orlando Sentinel
"Luckily, the love-hate relationship between spoiled yet smothered Lizzie (as self-righteous and stubborn as her daddy) and long-suffering spinster Emma is rendered with aching intensity by Canny and Fisher."
~ Seth Kubersky, Orlando Weekly
"Adult Lizzie is played well by Andrea Canny given the mixture of emotions she must portray."
Cab Fab CD reviews!
The Real Deal (Brett Perry-composer)
"Very few singers these days realize what their job is, which is to tell a story. Not with vocal gymnastics or impressive chops, but with a sensitivity to what the composer is communicating through choice of lyrics and melodic direction. Andrea gets this completely. She can sing her tail off, but the song is more important than her. She is more interested in you being inside the song than you hearing her sing. That's a rare quality these days. What a pleasure!"
Captivating, sultry vocals that I could listen to all day...
"Nightingales compliment each other by saying "your voice is as sweet as Andrea Canny's". This is a collection of awesome songs with the most soothing vocals ever! Andrea's voice goes right through to my heart and softens each moment spent in it's wondrous, harmonic beauty."
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it
(Fiely Matias-Disenchanted, the new musical!)
"A smooth and wonderful album...full of musical comedy goodness and great takes on old standards. Miss Canny sings from the heart and makes each song her own. I would love to see her perform all these songs live....there's a wonderful intimacy in listening to this album. PLEASE come to NY and take over the cabarets here! They will love you! Keep singing gurl cuz that's what ur born to do. Thanks for the smile in my heart."
Fabulous voice--great selection
"Andrea Canny's rich vocal stylings make this CD sizzle. While all of the songs are great, I am particularly attached to "Pure Imagination" (a song from Willie Wonka), which is deeply moving and special. Mix yourself a rich, velvety, chocolate martini, sink into a deep chair in the dark, and listen on a set of BOSE speakers for an otherworldly experience...well worth the price!"
A Cabaret Treat
"Andrea, has a unique voice that goes from whimsical to broadway broad belting. The album is creative and the songs come to life along with a great musical back up. If you love Betty Buckley, Christine Noll, Laurie Beecham, Ann Calloway or any of the great female vocalists you will LOVE this. GREAT choice of songs too."
"Judy Garland just called - "The Kid's got chops I tell ya, chops!!" Andrea's voice is strong and full of moxie, but she keeps you guessing - in an instant, she's all together vulnerable. An amazing talent..."
Music That Makes You Dance
"I have now played through this CD three times and there isn't a thing I dislike about it. I'm a late-thirties guy and I enjoy a lot of the old songs thanks to my father. He happened to be around listening with me during the first play through and kept uttering things like "wow", "she's great", and "they just don't make good recordings of the old songs like this anymore".
"This CD is awesome! There is not one song on it that I don't LOVE! Andrea's voice is captivating and the music quality is superb!"
A Journey Worth Taking
"Canny interprets mostly-familiar songs and brings their stories to the fore in a way that one imagines would please the great American songwriters into whose classics she breathes new life. She is a technically accomplished singer...Her emotion recalls the longing of an Andrea Marcovicci torch song..."
Fun & Whimsy
"One of the most fun collection of songs I've heard in a long time. If you need a pick-me-up or just feel the need to smile, this will do it. Highly recommended!"
Run, don’t walk to buy this!
"I have has the pleasure of hearing Andrea sing for a long time now and this CD is a must for anyone who loves great music sung by such an incredibly talented singer as Andrea. The choice of songs and the way they are sung is perfect and I know that you will not be disappointed buying this CD. Run don't walk says it all before they are all gone."
"What People Are Saying"
~ Scott Warfield ~ Orlando Sentinel
"Andrea Canny was perfect as Miss Adelaide...Her high pitched 'Betty Boop' voice gave life to a character who was not quite a ditz but always lovable, and her performances of 'Adelaide's Lament' and 'Marry the Man Today' were both great fun."
~ Doug White ~ CEO of D2 Productions
"Andrea is the type of performer that I can always rely on. Not only is she one of the most talented singers that I have ever heard, but she is an hysterical character actress. I never have to worry about my clients having the time of their life if Andrea is at the gig. I have clients that ask for her by name."
~ Orlando Weekly's Best of Staff Picks ~
Andrea Canny as Adelaide in Guys and Dolls
"A cry of disappointment could be heard from Orlando's arts aficionados when Broadway star Faith Prince dropped out of last fall's concert staging of Guys and Dolls at the Bob Carr in order to star in the national tour of Billy Elliot. (Hey, can you blame her ?) But, Orlando's own Andrea Canny didn't merely fill Prince's pumps as the adenoidal Adelaide in the Orlando Philharmonic and Mad Cow co-production; she...delivered a master class on how romantic comedy should be done. Canny proves that, though we might not have adequate acoustics (yet), Orlando's talent can easily stand
toe-to-toe with New York City's."
~ John deHaas ~
Pianist/Composer of Theme Park Diva and Halloween, the musical
"Andrea brings songs to life not just through her voice but through her heart. Her connection to a song goes beyond the notes and lyrics and touches the listener's soul."
~ Seth Kubersky ~
"Canny's show shrugs off cabaret's sometimes stuffy reputation in favor of a rollicking hour-long tour through often risqué recent compositions. At the debut performance I attended last Wednesday, Canny kicked off by asking the dozen-odd patrons in the audience if anyone was "offended by the F-bomb in a song". From there, she gleefully skipped through snarky serenades about romantic train wrecks, emotional encumbrance, and mirthful misandry, segueing between each soulfully-belted ballad with bawdy stories from her love life as a self-confessed "freak magnet".
