“…the always spectacularly impressive Lucy Godinez, as Ariel Moore. With one of the clearest, most beautifully expressive voices around, this gifted young actress has already impressed Chicago audiences… This role also allows Lucy to show off… her prowess as an excellent dramatic actress.” -Colin Douglas, Chicago Theater Review

“‘Holding Out For a Hero’ which, energetically belted by Godinez, deservedly received on opening night one of the longest ovations I’ve ever heard.” -Karen Topham, Chicago On Stage

“…in Lucy Godinez’s edgy and watchful performance, she’s the real star of the show.” -Kerry Reid, Chicago Tribune

“The major selling point for ‘Footloose’ is leading lady Lucy Godinez as Ariel… When she lets loose on “Holding Out for a Hero,” it’s like watching a comet.” -Catey Sullivan, Chicago Sun Times

“Some of the best moments in the show come from Lucy Godinez…” -Elizabeth Ellis, PerformInk

In the case of one of the other whopping talents in the show, Lucia Godinez, who plays Nina, we’re talking an actress still in college... there is much good that surrounds [the] lead, especially... Godinez (whose rich authenticity avoids the blandness of some of the Ninas I have seen).

Godinez is outstanding in this role and her voice is like that of an angel.

Amid all the talent, my favorite of the bunch was Lucy Godinez as Jeanie... Godinez is a rising Northwestern senior, but held her own among the more seasoned actors, giving Jeanie a goofy, adorable presence that is utterly lovable from beginning to end.

Some standout Tribe members give unforgettable performances. Lucy Godinez (who is presently a rising senior at Northwestern University) makes a stellar Jeanie. She is utterly present and hilarious in her solo number “Air,” which she sings with an inch of its life. Godinez also makes herself noticeable in the Tribe’s group numbers. She has one of the most expressive faces I’ve seen and leans into HAIR’s eccentric vibe.
