Dressed in a slinky, wine-red dress, Christine Avila, as the reformed prostitute, Mary Magdalene, almost brought down the tent with I Don't Know How To Love Him. Miss Avila has a strong, controlled style that is beautiful to hear and feel.
--Andrea Naversen, Cleveland Plain Dealer
Christine Avila, who plays Chole, a beautiful, sympatica, young mother [...] sings with such a startlingly brilliant and lovely soprano voice, it litarally stops the show. In fact, in a fine cast, she is a standout, whether singing or acting.
--Robert A. Masullo, Sacramento Bee
Christine Avila was a force of nature tonight at the Kirk Douglas Theatre. From the moment she stepped onstage, her compelling performance as Leonora Ledesma, wife to the brutal General Ledesma, galvanized the standing room only theatre. [...] It is a riveting piece of work by a skilled performer. Young actors would do well to see... Kudos to all the cast, but keep an eye out for Christine Avila. A prodigious actress.
--Rachel Bond, reviewer
Sanchez...and Christine Avila, as Rosa ignite the scene with virulent passion of what life's dealt them.
--Lee Melville, Dramalogue
Christine Avila has a natural charm and intelligence which she she shades artlessly into the peasant girl, Amata.
