SINGER. ACTRESS. ARTIST.
"Celie, played by a fierce and boundless Mariah Lyttle, endures her plight with determination and pluck."
ALAN SMAZON / WYES-TV
"The Color Purple has a large cast, but only one hero: Celie (a luminous Mariah Lyttle, gifted with a wide-open spirit and a spectacular singing voice)..."
GWENDOLYN RICE / ISTHMUS
"Mariah Lyttle, making her debut with Virginia Rep, shines in the role of Dorothy while graciously sharing the spotlight with her equally talented co-stars. Lyttle brings emotional depth and rich vocals to the show."
CATHERINE BROWN / THE BEACON NEWSPAPER
"Mariah Lyttle brings to the stage a wide-eyed, warm, and hopeful Dorothy who seems to enjoy each step on the road to Oz. Her vocals are spot on, especially in her take on Home. She’s cute as can be and very engaging."
JOAN TUPPONCE / RICHMOND FAMILY MAGAZINE
"Flawless may be the best word to describe Lyttle’s rendering of “Your Daddy’s Son,” as she brings all of the character’s emotional turmoil full front without overplaying it."
