The cast is universally outstanding. Suzette Azariah Gunn presents a conflicted Nya, a mother who has done everything she can to make the right decisions, not only for her students, but for her son. In spite of this, her wards are failing. The woman's physical and emotional stress is obvious in what is a stunning performance.

Broadwayworld

Gut-wrenching performance is particularly moving. If that doesn’t get those on the periphery of the pipeline to listen to these mothers and act in their interest, nothing will.

Suzette Azariah Gunn is wonderful as Nya. Nya is a complex character whose inner struggle demands portrayal by an actress who is matronly, relatable, and empathy worthy. Gunn is all of these things and more. Her concern for Omari's future, his safety and her fear that her parenting is the cause of his trouble, is moving.

Clevescene

 

Gunn delivers a powerful performance, matching King’s fiery sermons with her own passionate arguments on changing the world. She, too, is larger than life somehow, speaking on behalf of society: sharing Black Panther beliefs, roasting King’s “bougie“ assumptions, referring to God as a “she” with steadfast conviction, and ultimately carrying a secret set to redeem us all.

*Cville*

The physical aging that the actors do is subtle but spot-on. Gunn ages from age 17 to 60 and doesn’t play Christina at 60-ish hunched-over and fragile, just a little slower and stiffer.

Gunn and Alexander make us feel that we know these people, and, even when they are foolish or infuriating, we care about them.

*Winston-Salem Journal*

 

Gunn's performance illuminates Kennedys vision so well

         and shows the vibrant contradictions
*Variety*

 

Suzette Azariah Gunn infuse young actor  Millie with new-generation sophistication and savvy.

*News Observer*

The characters in Trouble In Mind largely drove the sarcastic humor evident in the first act through their spot-on line delivery, especially those of Wiletta Mayer (Katherine Hunter-Williams) and Millie Davis (Suzette Azariah Gunn). Wiletta’s deeply sarcastic lines were furthered by her humorous facial expressions, while Millie’s sassy, acerbic tongue earned many chuckles from the crowd..

Suzette Gunn is a spitfire as sharp-dressed African-American actress Millie Davis, who believes that if you have some of the finer things, flaunt them
