"A genuinely captivating Maria, it is the radiant Ortiz whose all or nothing urgency carries this West Side Story to its highest points".
-The Boston Globe
I have performed many of the traditional musical theater soprano roles and I proudly represented my Puerto Rican heritage playing the role of Maria in West Side Story in the Broadway tour throughout the USA, Canada and Japan, and in many regional productions. In theater I have played dramatic and comedic roles, including one of my new favorites "Honey" in Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf. Some dream roles of mine are Eliza Doolittle, Sally Bowles and Maggie the Cat, among many others.
I made my network television debut in Law and Order: Organized Crime, playing the recurring Guest Star role Rosaria Santos for three episodes. I loved everything about it and can't wait to get back on a set.
