"Priscilla, Queen of the Desert"- Mercury Theater Chicago

I am playing the role of "Cynthia" in Mercury Theater Chicago's production of Priscilla: Queen of the Desert from July 15-September 11, 2022! The reviews are in- come see what everyone's talking about... what do I do with a hula hoop and ping pong balls? Hmm....



"Ayana Strutz does a number that is worth the price of the ticket- she is sensational."

- Alan Bresloff (Around The Town Chicago)


"I will never forget the performance of Ayana Strutz as Cynthia, an entertainer with special skills. Strutz is hilarious and nearly steals the show with some athletic moves, comic lines, and juggling. You may not be able to look at a ping pong ball as just a ball again."

- Kathy D. Hey (Third Coast Review)

"Highly Recommended- Ayana Strutz is terrific in the ensemble, but simply unbelievable as rubber-limbed Cynthia, Bob’s flaming and flashy wife, who demonstrates her special trick while dancing and entertaining in the local bar. She makes the 1979 hit, Pop Muzik” take on a whole new meaning."

- Colin Douglas (Chicago Theatre Review)
