“The most distinctive scenes are those involving Andrew Garland and Kirsten Chambers. As the suffering Prior Walter, Garland deployed a versatile, muscular baritone. Garland was at his best in Act II, when he turned into a convincing, if unwilling, prophet  and showed an impressive falsetto.” — Opera News, September 2017

“[Andrew Garland’s] Prior was more clearly drawn, both musically and dramatically, from the moment he announces he has AIDS, and Garland took advantage of every chance he had, including the humor.” Broadway World

“The central lovers received excellent performances — impassioned yet beautifully articulated musically and textually  — from Andrew Garland (Prior Walter) and Aaron Blake (Louis Ironson).  Garland, in fine shape physically, is a skilled, specific actor. His baritone radiated healthy security.” — David Shengold, Classical Voice North America

“The afternoon’s other showstopper was Tom Cipullo’s superbly crafted “America 1968,” given a riveting performance by baritone Andrew Garland, with Donna Loewy at the piano. Garland’s expressive, burnished voice was deal for Robert Hayden’s texts, as he balanced moments of searing power, poignancy and humor.” — Janelle Gelfand, Cincinnati Enquirer, April 8, 2017
