“...Raleigh Shuck's utterly engaging Cindy Lou Who..."
Chicago Parent - 11/26/14
“The cast is superb;...while the pitch-perfect Cindy Lou Who (Presley Ryan) sweetly coaxes stirrings of humanity in the green guy himself."
T2Online - 11/26/14
“When everything has been stuffed up the chimney except the tree, he comes face to face with the precious Cindy-Lou Who (Presley Ryan and Lilyana Cornell alternating the role) a darling combo of Little Orphan Annie and Pebbles Flintstone with the voice of a young Arianna Grande...Her touching rendition of “Santa for a day” makes this fake Santa’s heart begin to grown 2 sizes bigger. And she does the same to most of the adults in the audience. What a cutie."
Chicago Critic - 11/22/14
“...well-portrayed by the young Presley Ryan..."
The Local Tourist - Chicago - 11/22/14
“Ryan sounds like she could be standing in for the Annie production down the street, with a clear, sweet tone that makes you want to pick her up and hug her."
NWI Times - 11/22/14
“Young actress Presley Ryan is picture perfect (and vocally pitch perfect) as the wide-eyed Cindy-Lou Who, the little girl who helps The Grinch get his due."
Chicago Tribune - 11/22/14
“...Cindy Lou (well-played by Lilyana Cornell)..."
Stage and Cinema - 11/21/14
