It's nice to read a review after having seen the show myself!
If anyone wants to know more about Tianna "going low" when she is supposed to sing high notes in "I think I'm Gonna Like it Here" (and "Together at Last"), it is because some of the notes were re-written for her voice, with the highest parts taken out so that she wouldn't have to strain to belt them.
I agree that her voice (which is beautiful) seemed occasionally strained at points, but I think it's because she must be exhausted! That's such a tough role to sing night after night. But she really did a fantastic job getting through the show, and I like her voice very much.
I also agree about the "Who cares what they're wearing" solo. I assumed that they were having July imitate Wacky the puppet ... but it's so much more satisfying when she just sings it out! It's too bad she was directed to do the funny voice.
