"A powerhouse performer. Arielle Crosby is simply, THE TRUTH. We will herald this name for years to come."

-Colman Domingo (Tony Award nominated actor)

Native Detroiter Arielle Crosby has been singing all of her life and has been performing since the age of 11. It all began with winning a city-wide competition and has led to performances across the US and countries around the world. These stages range from Carnegie Hall in New York to Palau de la Música in Barcelona. Her theatre career began with T.J. Hemphill's 'Perilous Times", Detroit's longest-running original musical and led to several performances at the acclaimed Stagecrafters Baldwin Theatre of Royal Oak, MI. Two of those performances included "Dreamgirls" and "In The Heights", both of which won the BroadwayWorld Regional Award for "Best Musical". Arielle made her professional theatre debut as the Narrator in Detroit Public Theatre's production of the Off-Broadway hit "Murder Ballad". She was most recently seen in the North American tour of Motown the Musical as Martha Reeves and a Diana Ross understudy.

About In The Heights...

BroadwayWorld- "If Crosby had to be described in one word, it would be: powerhouse. This girl is a force to be reckoned with when she is on stage because the audience cannot help but watch her. When she sings, every emotion is felt to the very core of the crowd."

About Murder Ballad...

It’s All Theatre- “Bergamaschi, Gutman, Mewha, and Crosby not only are accomplished actors, but have great voices as well.”

Pulp (Arts Around Ann Arbor) - “The highlight of the show is actually the nameless Narrator, played by Arielle Crosby, who takes audiences breath away with her hugely powerful voice.”

Detroit Free Press- “Crosby…makes her professional debut with confidence and presence.”

Encore Michigan- “And then there’s Crosby, a Detroit-native (who just might be my favorite of the night). Her international experience as a singer of gospel, pop, rock and opera provide her with the chops necessary to handle the complicated music with ease.”

About Aida...

Patty Nolan (formerly of The Examiner)- “The classically trained Arielle Crosby, as Aida, is simply amazing. Her voice is powerful, rangy and expressive.”

About Perilous Times...

Greg Dunmore (Pulse Beat TV)- “[T.J. has] Broadway quality voices in Jermaine Sellers, Jesse Campbell, the young lady who played Mary (Arielle Crosby)…outstanding.”
