Reviews


​​"Elizabeth Mitchell as the sum and center of the March family universe – Marmee – offers a poignant but refreshingly lighthearted take on the role. She has a remarkable and distinctive singing voice, with the acting chops to accentuate that innate talent. Her solo moments of reflection on stage as a mother trying to keep the fraying threads of her family woven together are a gut punch."  Full Review


Roy Sexton, Reel Roy Reviews

Marmee in "Little Women: The Broadway Musical"

One Off Productions



​Elizabeth Mitchell is a perfect Marmee, and her lovely vocals are more than up to what are sometimes difficult measures. She shines particularly in “Days of Plenty,” and “Here Alone.” Full Review


David Kiley, Encore Michigan

Marmee in "Little Women: The Broadway Musical

One Off Productions


"The Duke and Duchess of Plaza-Toro and their betrothed-from-birth daughter Casilda are a ridiculous highlight of the show. Elizabeth Mitchell impressively plays the Duchess, overshadowing the Duke at every turn as intended, and is absolutely sparkling in "On the Day When I Was Wedded," where she clues the audience in on who really wears the bloomers in their relationship."


Eli Neburger, PULP

The Duchess of Plaza Toro in "The Gondoliers" by Gilbert and Sullivan

University of Michigan Gilbert and Sullivan Society



"Strong ensemble acting and singing is turned in by Elizabeth Mitchell. Ms. Mitchell lights up the stage in Act III with a solo and a fabulous diva turn in a dress fit for Mardi Gras."


David Kiley, Encore Michigan

Flora/Charlotte in "La Traviata" by Verdi

Arbor Opera Theater



"Elizabeth Mitchell was wonderful as Mrs. VanDare."


Kelly Ferjutz, Cool Cleveland

Mrs. VanDare in "The Firefly" by Friml

"Elizabeth Mitchell made Charlotte Lucas into a warm and loving woman, who, although she knew her worth, could easily see herself as wife to Mr. Collins."


Kelly Ferjutz, Cool Cleveland

​Charlotte Lucas in "Pride and Prejudice" by Baker/Jacobs

Ohio Light Opera



"Frasquita and Mercedes (Elizabeth Mitchell) both sang and acted their roles well as the caring gypsy friends of Carmen. Their quintet in the second act was one of the highlights of the afternoon."


Dina Soresi Winter, Italian Tribune

Mercedes in "Carmen" by Bizet

Arbor Opera Theater



"Elizabeth Mitchell, who portrayed Lady Jane, entertained audiences with her witty, full-blown humor."
