Evita (Eva Perón)

City Island Theatre, NYC

“Playing the challenging title role is Ashley Wool. Vocally flawless, she brought a real hardnosed persona to the character, capturing Evita’s steely ambition and sensual nature. Ms. Wool has an undeniable presence and commanded the stage. The room fell silent when her rendition of ‘Don’t Cry for Me Argentina’ filled the auditorium at the start of the second act; a raw and breathtakingly emotional performance.”

        -Maria Beltre, OnStage New York

 

“Eva’s character moves from cold blooded and ambitious to physically frail over the course of the show, and Ashley Wool beautifully depicted her deterioration, making a powerful connection with the audience in her reprise of ‘Don’t Cry for Me Argentina.’ The chemistry between Ashley Wool’s Eva and Nic Anthony Calabro’s Juan Perón was a great asset to the production.”

Love, Sex & the I.R.S. (Kate Dennis)

City Island Theatre, NYC

​“Ashley Wool, as Kate, went energetically and appealingly from indecision to resolution, as she confirmed her character’s life goals.

Character Breakdown: A Cabaret

One-woman show at The Winery at St. George

“The show features some fantastic and brutally honest narratives on various subjects from auditioning, to working as a barista, love and even a dab of politics. These detailed and revealing anecdotes serve as clever segues into great musical performances....Ms. Wool, a 2015 OnStage Critics Award Nominee, shows off an impressive range and power with her vocals. Whether it's bringing the right amount of personality to ‘Buenos Aires’ from Evita or smoothness to ‘Easy to be Hard’ from Hair....The highlight for me was her rendition of ‘Sheridan Square,’ a little known song by Alan Menken and Howard Ashman...Ms. Wool gave this song its due with thoughtful soft vocals providing a poignant moment in the evening....While talking about the struggles of trying to ‘make it’ is nothing new to cabaret shows, Ms. Wool brings a certain authenticity and personality in her writing which is particularly memorable.”
