In Memoriam: Jason Tremblay
"Jason Tremblay – Our Theatre Hero." So read the Paramount Theatre marquee on April 3, and on Sunday, April 30, people will gather to explain just why this local man of the dramatic arts – playwright, director, producer, stage manager, educator – deserved that title. They'll be celebrating his life, which ended far too soon this month at the age of 39.

Quinton, Meet Hamilton
Hey, Austin, if you can spare a minute today to wish an actor "Good show" – say, with a shout (or tweet) of "Break a leg!" or "Merde!" – kindly direct it up toward NYC. I'm sure J. Quinton Johnson would appreciate a bit of encouragement from the ATX before he hits the stage in his first official performance in the Broadway cast of Hamilton.

In Memoriam: Linalice Carey
When Linalice Carey began making theatre in Austin, the spaces were small and far from glamorous. But that never stopped this intrepid producer/director/actor/writer/puppeteer/ entrepreneur from creating stage magic in them. Now, this landmark figure in the city's theatre scene from the Sixties to the Eighties has died. She was 95.

Exploring the "Other"
A familiar twinge of discomfort arises watching The Explorers Club at Austin Playhouse, the kind you get when you’re genuinely not sure if it’s okay to laugh. The comedy features a tribal character named Luigi, a shirtless warrior covered in blue and white paint, sporting a flamboyant mohawk, and speaking gibberish.
