Arielle Jacobs singing “Breathe”

“Arielle Jacobs shines as the bubbly Nina. Jacobs delivers a moving performance taking Nina through the journey of a nervous teen terrified to face her family’s disappointment, to a strong women at the end of the summer now willing to face the world’s hardships and to stand up against her father for the man she loves. Jacobs also provides the show’s emotional climax with a tear-jerking performance of ‘Everything I know’ in memory of a fallen barrio resident.”

“Arielle Jacobs makes Nina the show’s most compelling character. Both Jacobs and Gonzales-Nacer have radiant voices that bring power and poignancy to such songs as ‘When You’re Home.’ ‘It Won’t Be Long Now’ and ‘Breathe.’”Variety

“As the young daughter conflicted about romance, Arielle Jacobs shows a gentle voice when she sings and an unusually thoughtful sense of timing and reserve when she acts; when she laughs, she breathes compassion and understanding into the play.”The Hollywood Reporter

“Arielle Jacobs sings beautifully as the troubled Nina.”The Houston Chronicle

“We related most to Nina, the conflicted college student who’s home for the summer. Maybe it’s because we’re going through our own quarter life crisis or maybe it’s that Arielle Jacobs could sing her way to world peace. Seriously. Her mellifluous and angelic voice held the web of distraught characters together and drew the audience in with sweetness and grace.”The Chicagoist

“Arielle Jacobs will take over the role of uptown sweetheart Nina Rosario in Broadway’s In the Heights beginning November 15. The show’s current Nina, American Idol winner Jordin Sparks, will play her final performance on November 14. In the Heights is Jacobs’ Broadway debut after playing Nina in the show’s national tour. She has also played Gabriella in the national tour of High School Musical.”
