About Me

Hi! I'm Mitchel. I'm a New York-based actor and singer and a proud member of Actors' Equity. I trained at Yale and the London Academy of Dramatic Art, and, since then, I've been performing in theatre, television, short films, radio plays, and commercials across the United States and the world. I most enjoy telling stories—whatever the medium—that challenge audiences to understand people who are different from them. 

Favorite theatre credits include Paul Bratter in Barefoot in the Park (Legacy Theatre), George Gibbs in Our Town (Valley Shakespeare Festival) and a number of roles in the Off-Broadway political satire musical Me the People (Triad, written by Emmy-winner Nancy Holson). I'm a classically trained actor, and I've performed quite a bit of Shakespeare—including Laertes in Hamlet (Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival) and Octavius Caesar in Julius Caesar (Elm Shakespeare Company, dir. Alvin Epstein) among others. Most recently, I was thrilled to be nominated for BroadwayWorld Regional Awards for my work in Oedipus Rex (Best Performer in a Play) and the original musical Joan Joyce (Best Supporting Performer in a Musical)—both at the Legacy Theatre—and to appear in a national television commercial for 


When I was at Yale, I had the incredible opportunity to sing with the world-famous Whiffenpoofs—the planet’s oldest collegiate a cappella group, made up of fourteen seniors from the university annually. During my time with the group, we traveled to more than 20 states and 35 countries—as well as to all seven continents—and performed in prestigious venues from the White House to Lincoln Center and with artists such as Brian Stokes Mitchell, Zooey Deschanel, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, and Darren Criss. 


When I’m not acting or singing, you can find me playing my alto saxophone, hanging out with my pet rabbit, or watching/thinking about the Olympics.
