“…the most impressive performance comes from Ayvah Johnson as the childhood version of Tina. Her powerful voice and spunky stage presence are the embodiment of star quality.”

The Oakland Press – 12/7/2022
“Ayvah Johnson as the young Anna Mae Bullock busting a soulful chorus”

MD Theatre Guide – 11/18/2022
“Ayvah Johnson as young Anna Mae was especially impressive, and she has a bright future ahead of her with those vocal cords. She wows within her first few moments on stage.”

Washington City Paper – 10/18/2022
“Ayvah Johnson, as young Anna Mae, is a superstar in the making, getting both her onstage audience and the crowd in the theater riled up from the first note she belts.”

“…a delightful Ayvah Johnson…”

The Zebra – 10/12/2022
“…Standouts are…Ayvah Johnson – a tiny thing with a huge voice who plays Tina as a child…”

Harvard Crimson – 9/27/2022
“Stunningly, one of the cleanest and most powerful voices on stage is that of Little Anna-Mae, played by Ayvah Johnson. In an early scene at church, Little Anna-Mae belts out her first chillingly impressive notes. In the span of only a few minutes, she manages to express the complex rollercoaster of emotions of a young child who longs to feel joy, but is put through hell over many years.”

BroadwayWorld Rhode Island – 9/19/2022
“…an incredible voice in Ayvah Johnson…”

“…young Ayvah Johnson playing young Anna-Mae Bullock (Tina’s given name) is a wonder with a sit-up-and-take-notice voice”

Edge Media Network – 9/15/2022
“…Ayvah Johnson gives it her all…”
