NEWS/REVIEWS

08.08.03 Norman Normal Saves the World: The Geek Breaks Out!; Austin Chronicle Review
Nash's art is in the insta-characterization. He tells his story through characters' "dialogues,"
06.27.03 Eggheads: Ain't That a Kick in the Head; Austin Chronicle
To see such assuredness of style, combined with the sense that the actors were really having fun, was a kick.
06.01.03 VORTEX Summer Youth Theatre Pushes Teens to Produce; KLRU Spotlight Report
05.23.03 Holy Cross Sucks!: One for All; Austin Chronicle
The story's thrust is the musketeerish friendship that propels the boys through four tough years from timidity to freedom via New York.
05.09.03 Austin Critics Table Nominations, 2002-2003; Austin Chronicle
04.25.03 Black Tower: Timeless Struggles; Austin Chronicle Review
In The Black Tower, the experimental performance company ethos creates another theatrical museum through which audiences may examine living dioramas populated by Greek gods engaged in struggles with each other as old as the human race.
03.21.03 The Scarlet Letter: A Recurring Nightmare; Austin Chronicle Review
Within this atmosphere of dread, director Michelle Fowler and her cast create a society of suffocating morality and the cruel reprisals that await any who violate its rigid rules of conduct.
02.07.03 Unkindest Cuts of All; Austin Chronicle News Article on Austin Art Funding
01.17.03 Holy Well, Sacred Flame: Spring Down Memory Lane; Austin Chronicle Review
Writer-director Bonnie Cullum makes a unique rite from sincerity, sensuousness, and outlandish vision.
