Pippin: Summer Theater of New Canaan, CT

Bros do Prose: Peter Pan: Mercury Theater Chicago, IL

“the strongest performer in the production.  At first appearing merrily blissful she convincingly transforms into a serious and disquieted figure at the show’s conclusion.”

- Stuart Brown - Connecticut Critics Circle. 

“The lithesome Catherine (the winning Ella Raymont), proclaims in a delightful solo that she is the right “Kind of Woman.”

 

- Geary Danihy - Connecticut Critics Circle.

“I loved the arc of character Ella Raymont has as Catherine. She goes from a Rapunzel-like farmer’s daughter to jeans and a tee shirt, complete with tattoos and short blonde hair. There is no way I would have recognized her at the cast party.”

 

- Wayne Keeley - Connecticut Critics Circle

"..the endearing Ella Raymont sings both "Kind of a Woman" and "I Guess I'll Miss the Man" sweetly and she also sounds great in her duet with Schanne, "Love Song."

 

- Zander Opper - Talkin’ Broadway

“[Raymont’s] stage presence and commitment to the material elevate(s) the production into excitingly imaginative territory.”

 

- Marissa Oberlander - Chicago Reader 

“With all the precision, agility and endless stamina possible, these two terrific actors bring to their enthusiasm to the stage, which spills out over the footlights and encourages audience involvement.”  

 

-Colin Douglas - Chicago Theatre Review 

“Ella plays Wendy, the Lost Boys, Tinkerbell and the crocodile with spunk and spirit”

- Colin Douglas - Chicago Theatre Review 

West Side Story: Summer Theater of New Canaan, CT

"lively"

- David A. Rosenberg, Talkin’ Broadway

"Ella Raymont brings just the right toughness and poignancy to her role."

- Brooks Appelbaum, Connecticut Critics Circle

Legally Blonde: The Musical At Dominican Performing Arts Center, Chicago

"[Raymont] managed to bring out both sides of Elle in equal measure, adding a comedic twist equal to Reese Witherspoon"

             

- Tiffany Skelnik - The Dominican Star

 

 

"gave Laura Bell Bundy a run for her money."

           

- Goldstar

Hair: The Musical at American Theater Company, Chicago

"Raymont...is a dominant force, giving the show a refreshing new focus on a character who really should’ve been the gooey center all along."
- chicagoist

 

"Her work — is just too raw, smart, honest and real."

- Chris Jones, Chicago Tribune

 

"Raymont, who just acts the heck out of Sheila and is the real heart of this production."

- Chris Jones, Chicago Tribune

                                                   

"In this production, Sheila (the adorable Ella Raymont, who bares it all) is more of a person than in most other productions and the fact that she loves everyone and has no fear, we find ourselves caring about her and hoping that somewhere she will take the right steps and have a normal life."
