IRS OKs G&S @ CCP
Arts Column December 13, 1996
"...Approximately 230 people attended, and the society made about
$4,500. "It was a good feeling for a whole lot of people to have one last show
there," Mellin says, "volunteers, techies, board members, a lot of the Cap City
regulars -- and Pepe (aka Jose Greco II) felt very happy to dance there one
last time." Congressman Doggett noted that it was "great to be able to give a
hand to the Gilbert & Sullivan Society, which has given so much to our

Page Two: Dancing at the Revolution With the Radio On!
Louis Black recalls the joys of driving around and falling in love with pop songs
Columns June 15, 2017, by Louis Black
"...The layering of the federal government's blatantly hypocritical agenda, which almost abusively serves the interests of big business while pretending to cater to the working classes, combined with this state's diversionary championing of restrictive and oppressive social legislation, is more dark ages than modern times. Though this seems to demand only the most serious responses, isn't answering in kind giving in to the mindset of despair, anger, and hate? "If I can't dance, I don't want to be part of your revolution," insisted Emma Goldman, the great anarchist and political activist...."

This Vortex dance exploring water as sacred is often beautiful but not always deep
Arts Review September 21, 2012, by Elizabeth Cobbe
"...The Vortex Repertory Company's original dance performance Water – the latest in a series of productions exploring the elements – has several moments that are similarly striking as they explore the nature of water, within an impressive set (designed by Ann Marie Gordon). Dancers move together like ocean creatures..."

"...Ashcroft said she is in discussions with UT schools, including the Kinesiology and Health Education Department, the Butler School of Music, and the School of Fine Arts and off-campus entities, including ACC, to run some courses under this new umbrella program. (In the meantime, ACC will expand course provision in areas previously covered by UT's informal classes, including dance.)

UT energetically takes on Charles Mee's update of an ancient Greek drama and makes it very here, now
Arts Review February 22, 2008, by Barry Pineo
"...The broad, constant movement works best in two different sections of the play, where three of the sisters (we never actually see all 50 onstage at the same time – and it's a good thing, because finding a stage where they all fit would be difficult) join with three of the brothers in reciting Mee's poetic, politically charged text while moving choreographically, often in unison. Much of the play is dancelike and is, in fact, set against music – entirely appropriate for this story about love in all its aspects..."
Gobotrick Theatre Company's Intermission isn't a musical but kind of a live concert with real musicians pretending to be characters in front of a pretend audience in front of a real audience

Vortex Repertory Company's new production of Shakespeare's Hamlet has a strong contemporary feel, but ultimately it diminishes some of the power of the tragedy
Arts Review March 23, 2007, by Robert Faires
"...That may be part of Nostrala's strategy for making the play feel more contemporary and relevant, and it does succeed at times in adding some fresh punch to this familiar play. It's a bit of a shock to see Ophelia engaging in self-mutilation, and Michelle Flanagan uses the character's revulsion to give her madness a forceful, accusatory edge in the scene before Ophelia drowns herself (a moment staged here, and quite effectively, in an evocative dance choreographed to Tracy Bonham's "Wilting Flower")..."

Where Nothing Falls II
Where Nothing Falls II is a breathtaking, heart-rending parade of bodies in motion through the vast expanses of a warehouse
Arts Review June 25, 2004, by Robert Faires
"...By the time we see this in Where Nothing Falls II, Sally Jacques' rich extension of her site-specific dance from 2003, we've witnessed a number of individuals walk and run to and fro between their own shadows on a wall and some unseen force that appears to startle them, until finally all fall and lie still on the hard floor; four figures attached to ropes leave a catwalk high in the air and float to earth, their sideways bodies curled like fetuses; angelic figures on roller skates glide from a dark void toward us, and as they come kneeling and scooping their hands, as if through water, to offer us its cooling relief, two figures, their hands gripping long, elastic bands, launch themselves into the air, their feet leaving the earth, their bodies swinging, soaring, sailing through space we've seen this and much more, even a quartet of celestial skateboarders, rolling thunderously up wooden ramps and down to surf the concrete, winding through the forest of tall, concrete pillars and one another's paths. In short, we've seen a breathtaking parade of bodies in motion, human beings confronting loss, separateness, and their place in the wide, wide world through the massive expanses of a warehouse in the Domain...."
A bright design firm on the Austin theatre and film scene, Star Costume & Clothiers, falls to earth, and folk artist Brother Jeremias Mysliwiec passes away.

Bobby Blue Bland, The Blues Specialists, Victory Grill, July 14
Music Review July 20, 2001, by Christopher Gray
"...Bobby Blue Bland, The Blues SpecialistsVictory Grill, July 14 It was only a matter of time until the fire marshal showed up. The poor woman at the door, fanning herself with a "reserved" placecard, said, "You're from the press, you tell 'em we're packed and I'm about to fall out." With every available inch of space occupied by some human body part, visiting the bar required an odd Discovery Channel dance, like a sidewinder turned on end..."

American Psycho (Koch)
Music Review April 28, 2000, by Margaret Moser
"...American Psycho(Koch) Like most contemporary soundtracks for period films, American Psycho is more intent on revisionism than accuracy. That's why when the album explodes with the Dead or Alive dance classic "You Spin Me Round," it's not Peter Bern's flamboyant original, but White Dope's metal grind..."

Lit-urday: All the Single Ladies
The life cycle of a female worker bee sounds strangely familiar
DAILY Books July 26, 2014, by Jessi Cape
"...It’s an odd read, no doubt, but that’s part of the beauty. Scent and vibration transmit information; choreographed dance sequences communicate plans: “She danced the falling poppies and the naked fields, she ran figure eights to teach them direction and azimuth”; and coded floor tiles line the hive directing robotic traffic..."

No. 2 hit from 1965, 'Treat Her Right,' by Roy Head & Gene Kurtz: 'Just one of them songs that hangs around"
Music Story August 31, 2007, by Margaret Moser
"...Written by Roy Head and Gene Kurtz, the song swaggered with an elastic rhythm bolstered by the punch of brass. It encouraged dirty dances such as the gator, and its double-entendre lyrics promised heaven "if you practice my method just as hard as you can." With 12 bars and three chords, "Treat Her Right" delivered heaven in 125 seconds flat...."

The Zachary Scott Theatre Center had to close its hit production of 'Hank Williams: Lost Highway' because of a planned national tour of the show
Arts Story July 22, 2005, by Robert Faires
"...According to Zach Artistic Director Dave Steakley, a national tour of Lost Highway was being planned, and the producers didn't want any further exposure of the show in Austin, even though there were no plans to bring the proposed touring production here. Attempts to negotiate a compromise with the producers were unsuccessful, so Zach shut down its Lost Highway and for two weeks offered a Hank Dance Party, with the band from Zach's Lost Highway performing Hank Williams hits and other country & western standards, plus some originals by Kenneth Brian, who played Hank for Zach...."

Much Ado About Nothing
J. Damian Gillen's take on Much Ado About Nothing derives its inspiration from Hollywood screwball comedies of the 1930s and 1940s, and almost pulls it off
Arts Review July 30, 2004, by Barry Pineo
"...The visual look of the production derives its inspiration from the screwball comedies Hollywood made in the 1930s and 1940s, and given the financial constraints he obviously was dealing with, Gillen almost pulls it off. He gets some help from Sharon Sparlin, who has choreographed a dance reminiscent of the Lindy Hop and very much in keeping with the spirit of the production..."
The London Cuckolds
In the Bedlam Faction's production of the Restoration comedy The London Cuckolds, "rubber-faced" is a highly appropriate way of describing the majority of the cast, and that's a problem. Rather than telling a funny story, the actors are begging for laughs at the expense of the script and the characters they play, and it leaves the play cold.
Arts Review November 30, 2001, by Barry Pineo
"...The elementary set design and costumes are characterized by loud colors and patterns, and the costumes, especially for the women, reveal more than a bit of leg and other assorted flesh. Scenes burst with energy and blast their way across the stage -- a tryst between Eugenia and Loveday is staged with a variety of dance movements -- and the performances, for the most part, are big and broad..."
Heaving Shadows at the Skin Show: A Roaring Existentialist Campfire
Kerthy Fix's Heaving Shadows at the Skin Show is an intimate, sometimes disturbing look at a group of people in perpetual free fall. Public Domain's production of Howard Barker's Possibilities is a fascinating invitation to the Theatre of Catastrophe and to run around on the tarmac.

"...Maybe it was the mirror ball hanging from the Continental Club ceiling, and the way the light reflected off of it -- glittering, sparkling, turning the already mood-lit South Congress nightspot into an undersea grotto. The tables in the front half of the club were full, the seats along the bar occupied, as well as those few stools between the two bathrooms, but the dance floor and bandstand in front of the stage were empty, lending the room an intimate atmosphere despite the fact it looked empty -- like you were peering into an aquarium without any fish..."

"...Just last night, I asked a friend to meet me at Antone's, this time to
rehearse the subtleties of conversing with a female in a loud bar (whispering

prelude to foreplay), staying up past 10:30pm, drinking without burping, and
dancing. Since I'd die before actually asking a strange woman to dance, and
dates are few and far between, this practice, although somewhat parasitic, is
absolutely necessary if I'm to appear cool when Princess Perfect appears..."
