INTO THE WOODS enjoys a successful run

Michelle and her fabulous cast enjoyed a terrific run of Music Theater Work’s beautiful production of INTO THE WOODS - and so did audiences! Read what critics had to say about Michelle’s performances as The Witch in Sondheim’s magical masterpiece:

“This large and extremely talented cast is led by the magnificent Michelle Jasso, who achieves a new personal level of excellence as the Witch. Alternately the bitchy diva and the sensitive parent, Ms. Jasso’s sophisticated style and comic talent are complimented by a lush voice that caresses Sondheim’s difficult music with aplomb. Especially beautiful are her soul searching, “Last Midnight,” and “Stay with Me,” a mother/daughter duet sung with Rapunzel, nicely played by Sarah Wasserman.“ ~ Colin Douglas, Chicago Theatre Review

“Of course, there is The Witch (an incredible  job by Michelle Jasso, taking on a role that was made famous by non other than Bernadette Peters and making [the role] her own)” ~Alan Bresloff, Around the Town Chicago
