Recent reviews from Gary David's performance in RENT with Theatre 55:

​ "Keast’s take on “Your Eyes,” sung while holding his dying girlfriend Mimi (Lisa Ramos), is as searing as I’ve ever heard it. He does Roger’s gritty vocals justice throughout the show, but this song in particular gripped the audience." - Alex Lauer, One Fan Show

"Gary David Keast's Roger is believable, and Gary has that broody rocker energy, tempered with a little more wisdom and experience" - Cherry and Spoon
