She's had the breaks: a small but memorable appearance as Meadow Soprano's college pal in The Sopranos; a founding slot in Logo TV's The Big Gay Sketch Show; plus, writing for Joan Rivers' Fashion Police..."

Brassy Broadway legend truly at liberty now
DAILY Arts  July 17, 2014, by Robert Faires
"...The highlights of her career were noted in the introduction to an interview with the Chronicle from 2008, conducted prior to her performance of her award-winning one-woman show, Elaine Stritch at Liberty, for Austin Cabaret Theatre: "Fifty-plus years on the boards that included understudying Ethel Merman in Call Me Madam and taking over her part on the national tour, starring in Noël Coward's Sail Away (written for her), replacing her former acting teacher Uta Hagen on Broadway in Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, and creating the definitive characterization of Joanne in George Furth and Stephen Sondheim's Company.

The Ladies Man
Leon Phelps (Meadows) has never met booty he couldn't plunder. Between his mile-high Afro, crème-colored flairs, and open-just-shy-of-the-navel rayon disco shirts, he's a walking anachronism, a pleasant enough fellow who...

Film Review  October 13, 2000, by Marc Savlov
"...Between his mile-high Afro, crème-colored flairs, and open-just-shy-of-the-navel rayon disco shirts, he's a walking anachronism, a pleasant enough fellow who just happens to fixate 24/7 on the female of the species. When he and his producer Julie (Parsons) find themselves unemployed after Leon's phat-mackin' radio show is canned due to lascivious content, the platonic duo must suffer the indignities of an ever-fickle marketplace, while ladies' man Leon strives to “get it on, babee.” Based on the popular, if minor, Saturday Night Live sketch of the same name, and directed by House Party's Hudlin, there's unfortunately more padding here than in any other three SNL spinoffs combined..."

SXSW Film Conference and Festival '98 Further Reflections
Screens Story  March 27, 1998
"...Gene's reluctance stems in part from the fact that he's not entirely out to his small-town, South Texas family.

BS3 Picks & Sleepers
Arts Story  April 17, 1998
"...Every year when SXSW rolls around, the Chronicle tries to help those people whose eyes glaze over every time they stare at the mammoth list of showcases with those hundreds of band names printed in three-point type by running a feature called "Picks & Sleepers," in which Chronicle music writers try to handicap the many, many SXSW events with 80-word nuggets of text that say a little something about just who such-and-such a band is, where it hails from, and even what kind of music it plays. The context is most helpful..."

"...The funniest wheel of the early morning tricycle of KLBJ-FM's The Dudley & Bob With Matt Show is straight outta Brownsville (with a high school layover in Houston) and is old enough that he "watched The Golden Girls on network television."

News Story  September 24, 1999, by Clay Smith
"..."The prolonged incubation period of HIV infection feeds this misperception, since men who become infected in their early twenties are not likely to show symptoms until they are in their thirties," CAPS researchers wrote in AIDS, a professional journal, in 1990.
