"All it takes is a few moments with McLemore — a charismatic blend of Julie Andrews and Sally Fields — to know she will FILL ALL EXPECTATIONS as the heart of the show. A delightful presence whose forthrightness and exuberance rings with sincerity, she has a voice that fits Maria’s songs as if Rodgers and Hammerstein composed them for her."
- The Union Democrat
"[McLemore] plays Maria with humor, grace and an unyielding enthusiasm that has the audience on her side FROM THE VERY FIRST NOTE she sings."

“ These actors…They’re Atlanta favorites for a reason! Rhyn McLemore is ridiculous. She’s got this magnetic joyful presence and it’s on full display as Jen. She’s A MASTERCLASS IN MOMENT TO MOMENT ACTING. When she’s in a scene, she’s there. It doesn’t matter what happens or goes wrong during the scene, that becomes her reality in that moment. Watching Jen take a stand against herself and asking if being agreeable is necessary or even acceptable. You see every thought form, be addressed, and pushed aside all in her performance. Whether it’s in the way she smiles, or a head tilt, or the smallest movement of an eyebrow, it’s mesmerizing.”
- MWMIV Speaks
“McLemore makes Jen a conflicted young woman trying to stand up for herself and not let the past weigh her down and influence her.
IT’S BEAUTIFUL WORK.”

*** The Crucible - Gallery Players ***
“McLemore brings passion, strength, and vulnerability to her Elizabeth Proctor from the start, and she carries these qualities through her entire performance.”

“That it’s as moving as it is comes from some EXCELLENT ACTING in parts large and small, but mostly by Rhyn McLemore as the title character, a girl who has to be bold and straightforward at the same time she’s on her quixotic quest.”
- The Off Off Broadway Review (www.oobr.)
"Rhyn McLemore plays Maria with just the right amount of stubborn innocence to be FLAWLESSLY CHARMING."
