PRESS: "Lighting up the action is Christie Coran as Mitzi, the Hungarian maid whose every sentence is comical." -Warren Gerds, We Are Green Bay "...standout performances included Christie Coran as Mitzi, whose flair for the dramatic keeps you fixed on every humorous word. By far the loudest personality, she delivers convincingly with her lines and body language." -Aleah Kidd, Door County Pulse "Other standouts for me include Christie Coran as Ellen (the character's heartfelt acceptance of Uncle Scrooge gets me every time, and Coran's portrayal was wonderfully warm)." -Kelsey Lawler, Planet Kelsey "Christie Coran... brings tremendous charm to the role of Fred's Wife." -Jeff Grygny, Play On Milwaukee "Beautiful, accomplished vocalist Christie Coran is a much-welcome newcomer to BrightSide Theatre, bringing cool class and a gorgeous soprano to Baroness Elsa Schrader." -Colin Douglas, Chicago Theatre Review
