ACTOR - SINGER - COMEDY - MUSICAL THEATER
"In his role of the Lion, Metzger is the production’s obvious star. The actor eschews Bert Lahr’s trembling timidity, instead more closely resembling the stage persona of Nathan Lane. This Lion is the most boisterous character on hand, and with his stage presence and natural comic timing, Metzger walks away with his every scene."

[Review of The Wonderful Winter of Oz]
Andrew Metzger is simply one of the most gifted natural comics seen on Ventura County stages in a long, long time [...] Metzger is a combination of Zero Mostel and John Belushi, capable of mugging his way into and out of any situation. Nothing throws him; his mind his quick and agile, and his pliable face is capable of a multitude of expressions, each eyebrow working independently of one another and eyes bulging. [....] Yet, as much of a scene stealer as Metzger is, he is confident enough in his own abilities to know his place in this show and does not upstage [...] the other actors. Restrained but still funny as hell, Andrew Metzger is a face to watch, and watch, and watch.
