ANONYMOUS certified reviewer June 03, 2018
A delightful rendition of a woman's journey of love expressed through poetry, dance, rap and acting. A one woman show that was able to bring the characters to life in such a way that made me want to meet them in person!... full review

The Maya in Me was a riveting show that opened the doors to the life and experiences of Tameka Bob! Tameka is an A-1 storyteller. This one woman show was well written and without a doubt a master performance. She took me to the streets of New Orleans as she relentlessly searched for “G”. She took me back to the 90’s when she spit self-written bars to the tune of some of my favorite old school hip hop songs.

I was heavily blown away by the awe invoking details of this production. From beginning to ending I was graciously amused and just couldn't get enough. I appreciate the divine honesty and craving truth of this collection of tragic events centered around multiple love stories. I was soooo comedically intoxicated that after one viewing I decided to attend all three shows. Please go and support this love affair with art. Tameka Bob is Brilliant.... full review

This covered much more territory than I thought it would, The mix of first person narrative, Maya Angelou's words, music and dance was uplifting; the musicians on stage and the very comfortable seating also made the overall experience special.... full review

Tameka is a fierce and strong performer. I loved the incorporation of Maya Angelou. It was cleverly used and the parallels between Tameka's life and the words of Ms. Angelou was riveting to watch. ... full review

Set in New Orleans, the show shares her story of the conflict between faith and desire, of the hard lessons of love, and the ultimate redemption of the soul by being true to the foundation of her faith. It is presented with clock-like precision and timing, and is truly ready for Broadway and beyond. ... full review
