Biography

Drew’s acting ability and professionalism are reflected in the fact that he is consistently re-hired by directors and theatre companies. At ease with both dramatic and comedic characters, Drew received excellent reviews for his portrayal of David Lashley, a white homosexual businessman in love with a black dancer: "The character called for a measure of sensitivity, sensuality and playfulness and McKenzie delivered with excellent timing" and "McKenzie’s eloquent body language and subtle sense of timing contribute significantly to a portrayal which is truly outstanding". While performing as Gremio in the Christopher Biggins production of The Taming of the Shrew for the Holders Shakespeare Festival, Drew "nearly stole the show with a Bajan accent which brought the text vividly to life".
