"Ethan Crystal, as the duplicitous JD, has a sexy smile and eyebrow arch...His JD is just as he should be played, captivating at first and later frightening, but somewhat sad in his demise."

The Last Five Years

Tara Wilbrew, 2016

Tara Wilbrew, 2016

"[Crystal] gives us a nuanced Jamie, self-centered but loving, smug but endearing, adulterous but guilt-ridden. He lays himself bare."

-The Eugene Register-Guard

American Idiot

"Crystal’s Will is vulnerable to the point where, while he does the right thing, he lashes out by overindulging to hide his regret. [He] paints the picture of the loser who lights up and drinks too much on a dingy couch when, if he just made the leap, he could exercise his intelligence and promise...Crystal’s reedy and precise voice makes a nice complement to the charged stylings of Dave Cole’s Johnny."

A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum

"Crystal plays the doe-eyed, about-to-be-sacrificed-to-the-temple-of-hormones youth [Hero] with a radiant energy that spreads from ear to ear and gives a punch to his step. In Heathers: The Musical and American Idiot, he gave memorable performances as the All-american bad boy, but this time around he puts his best voice and foot forward with a sunny charm."

Some Night

"When called upon to play music, the members of The Canker Blossoms acquitted themselves wonderfully, with Mr. Crystal's voice being - well, crystal clear."
