Theater Reviews

"As the lively Lilly, Isabel Quintero steals the show, a strong-willed mask covering a far more vulnerable woman. Her perfect coif and manicured lawn are extensions of a life lived in the spotlight of a theater of her own design. She’s a little heartbreaking, balancing a woman whose walls are self-focused but always with a degree of sympathy because we understand just why that is so." - Clint May, Chicago Thetaer Beat (Living Large in a Mini Kind of Way- by Diane Rodriguez/Teatro Luna)

"Making her Porchlight debut is Isabel Quintero, perfectly cast as Abuela Claudia, the lovable neighborhood elder and surrogate grandmother, who raised Usnavi and his young cousin Sonny. Her two big numbers, “Paciencia Y Fe” and “Hundreds of Stories” are both sung beautifully and with heartfelt sensitivity. Audiences will easily fall in love with this beautiful lady, whose heart is as big as her warm, cheerful smile." - Colin Douglas, Chicago Theatre Review (In The Heights by Lin Manuel Miranda / Porchlight Theatre)
