"Mitchell’s honest and authentic depiction of her life’s low and high points is inspiring and empowering.
This unique show works on multiple levels, a combination of slam poetry, mini-musical, TED Talk and, most of all, a moving personal saga from a multitalented writer-actress-singer-designer-seeker."
"Mitchell’s elegant prose, poetry and lyrics combine with her lovely speaking and singing voice to paint a portrait of a particular kind of life in a particular era of Los Angeles."
"Who Are You was made for a wider audience. It’s easy to imagine it in multiple formats, from a straightforward filming of the solo show to a movie musical to a fashion-filled series. The series approach would allow exploration of intriguing elements that are only grazed in the current show: Mitchell’s Seven Sisters academic background, successful acting career and relationship with her mother, who appears only briefly as a domineering naysayer."

"Writer/performer Shareen Mitchell’s witty and insightful autobiographical script delivers ... a sincere redemption tale ... enhanced by Mitchell’s engrossing performance and direction by Kate Jopson."
"Mitchell is a crafty wordsmith, seamlessly melding dialogue, poetry, and songs to pronounced effect. She also has an engaging stage presence that ably radiates vulnerability, tenderness, and ferocity when the moment calls for them."
- Martin Hernandez
""Who Are You,” the new play presented by the Greenway Arts Alliance and written and performed by Shareen Mitchell, is a transcendent, timely experience.
" To call Mitchell’s performance a tour de force would be an understatement. "
"Throughout the performance, tears, sniffles and even sobs could be heard. Mitchell’s eyes often seemed to be looking right through us, connecting to our souls as she found the tissue between her own experiences and ours."
"Mitchell’s story, like so many of ours, is about discovery, rediscovery, perseverance and that small little inkling of hope that keeps driving us forward, believing in ourselves even when no one else does.Mitchell and “Who Are You” are must-sees."
