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.”

Metro Weekly – 10/12/2022
“…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…”

Providence Journal – 9/16/2022
“And, Ayvah Johnson, who plays young Tina, has a power in her voice that belies her age. She is someone to keep an eye on.”

Cape Cod Times – 9/15/2022
“…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…”
