Arts Story  May 28, 2010, by Robert Faires

Staging Building the Wall Before Trump Builds His Wall
Robert Schenkkan races to get his latest work on stage
Arts Story  August 31, 2017, by Robert Faires
"...The producing entity in our city is the University of Texas Department of Theatre & Dance – fitting since Schenkkan is an alum. But Department Chair Brant Pope, who's directing UT's production, has a more compelling reason for bringing Building the Wall to life here..."

The Cherry Orchard
The crises facing Chekhov's characters feel very current in UT's staging
Arts Review  September 23, 2011, by Robert Faires

Arts Review  September 7, 2017, by Elizabeth Cobbe
"...Brant Pope's direction in Bruno-Pierre Houle's set seems implausible. Could a man who's been living in solitary really enjoy free rein of such a large room, bolted-down benches notwithstanding? Is this how much ease and space these characters would have when moving around each other?..."

"...The script by Frances Goodrich and Albert Hackett is rather dense – not with heightened language but with an emotional thickness that could give way to melodrama in less skilled hands. Director Brant Pope understands that dramatic action is the foundation of theatre and has his very talented cast wrap themselves in each moment, living there fully before bravely moving to the next..."

Dial 'M' for Murder
This Fifties suspenser shows its age in UT's production, which never quite generates all the suspense it could
Arts Review  October 11, 2013, by Elizabeth Cobbe
"...Yet the direction from department chair Brant Pope never quite rises to the challenges posed by a play like this one. A talky, talky script like Dial "M" isn't necessarily a bad thing, or nobody would ever bother to see a Shakespeare or a Chekhov..."

"...That idea was echoed by Brant Pope, chair of the UT Department of Theatre & Dance, who was on hand to help announce the nominees: "I grew up in Minnesota, where you're either a hockey player or a Communist. When I was in Guys and Dolls because I couldn't skate backwards fast enough to be a defenseman, it changed my life, too."..."
