But the thing is, this is presented as if such weren't shameful at all, as if women had -- get this -- sexual desires and emotional autonomy just like we do. Christ! Yes, I know. Perhaps you'd better sit down... - Wayne Alan Brenner; Austin Chronicle


12.28.01 Rob Nash Does Romeo and Juliet: The Power of One; Austin Chronicle Review
He shifts smoothly from character to character, sometimes instantly, sometimes after a slow turn for shifting's emphasis, and his skill in doing this is obviously beside the point.
11.23.01 Desdemona, A Play About a Handkerchief: Nothing to Sneeze At; Austin Chronicle Review
It's a damned effective production, boys, even though -- of course -- it's an impossible fairy tale.


Frailty, Thy Name Ain't Woman; Austin Chronicle
When it comes to the female gender, Shakespeare is not to be trusted.
10.26.01 Shopping and Fucking: Coitus An' Corruptus; Austin Chronicle Review
Yes, everything has a price; and if there are any of those little cartoon hearts hovering above the heads of these uneasily scrabbling lowlifes, those hearts are obscured by garish price tags.
09.28.01 Most Valuable: Stephanie Swenson; Austin Chronicle
09.14.01 The Deluge: Listen to the Rhythm of the Falling Rain; Austin Chronicle Review
... highly imagistic and poetic, with live music played by Michael Werst, Ken Burchenal, and Amy-Lou Werst -- a trio on violin, guitar, and cello -- complementing the cool, wetness of the environment and the gentle storytelling.
08.17.01 Richard III: Performances Within Performances; Austin Chronicle Review
a performance built around performances by a master actor on the stage of life.
07.20.01 Cyrano de Bergerac: Particular Panache; Austin Chronicle Review
An exquisite pain, then, proximity: all the things one wants to say but can't muster the courage to utter, since she, of course, doesn't really share those overwhelming feelings.
06.29.01 Uncaged: Yadda Yadda, Warden; Austin Chronicle Review
Ratgirl is an autonomous entity, with perky ears and a little black nose and a long, thick tail, who can be seen around town performing various duties...
05.22.01 Salome: Under the Veils; No Heart; Austin Chronicle Review
05.19.01 ROYGBIV 2001: That's Life... D'0h!; Austin Chronicle Review
This is the face belonging to the Everyman protagonist of ROYGBIV 2001: A Human Odyssey, and it never changes throughout his life, which we see in its entirety in this ONE Theatre Company production.
05.17.01 Austin Critics Expand Pool of Award Nominees; Austin American Statesman
05.08.01 Twelfth Night: Gently Into that Good Night; Austin Chronicle Review
Now, if you wondered what kind of stage director Faires might be, waste no time and pick up tickets for this last weekend of his elegant, understated (with a few hilarious exceptions) labor of love
03.21.01 Dicken's A Tale of Two Cities: Immediate, Raw, Raw Storytelling; Austin Chronicle Review
The unexpected choice by boundary-pushing VORTEX Repertory Company to mount this seemingly straightforward adaptation is clear from the start: Kirk Smith has pulled the disparate parts of Dickens' long, tortuously wrought plot together with a mix of verve and passion, intimacy and grandeur.
03.09.01 Radio Radio; Austin Chronicle
02.23.01 What a Piece of Work is Woman!; Austin Chronicle
In the New Shakespeare-Inspired Play 'Roses and Thistles,' Vortex Once Again Sows Seeds of Feminism
