Melissa Mitchell - Soli Deo Gloria
"Melissa Mitchell imbues the ill-fated Fantine with grace and grit."
                                                            ~Christopher Arnott, Hartford Courant 

"Melissa Mitchell's Fantine is beautifully portrayed, allowing the talented actress to show us her character's dramatic arc and somehow, almost imperceptibly, displaying the changes in her personality through a remarkably nuanced performance. Her performance of "I Dreamed A Dream" is heartrendingly sung, a powerful reminder of that song's meaning."
                                                     ~Jeffrey Ellis, Nashville - BroadwayWorld

"Melissa Mitchell dazzles...We predict stardom."                             
                             ~Steve Parks, Newsday

"Mitchell is a small girl with a big voice." 
                              ~Laura Aguirre, Daily 49er

"Mitchell’s voice was something to hear...powerful, controlled and vibrating with each emotion evoked in her character"
                             ~Genevieve Horsburgh, Dan's Paper

"As a cartoon character on screen, it’s easy to be perfect...I was struck with how perfect Melissa Mitchell was ....Mitchell’s voice was something to hear, clear as a bell (pun intended), powerful, controlled and vibrating with each emotion evoked in her character. The audience—myself included—was spellbound each time she sang." ~Genevieve Horsburgh, Dan's Paper, Long Island
