Lisa Scheps' Ground Floor Theatre
The tireless advocate for the underserved has built a home for their stories
Arts Story  December 17, 2015, by Jenn Lewis
"...The dreamlike haze fades, the stage lights come up, and onto the playing space steps Lisa Scheps. Classy and a bit sassy, this woman of the theatre stands at center and begins her melody, a symbolic tune for communities too little seen on the stage..."

Ground Plan
Lisa Scheps' Christmas gift to the local stage scene is a new performance venue, Ground Floor Theatre
Arts Story  November 26, 2014, by Robert Faires
"...For most people who have run a theatre of their own, once is enough. The unrelenting pressures of upkeep, facility management, bills, fundraising, and renters who are show people – who aren't exactly known for either their equanimity or economic stability – take a heavy toll, and when folks exit the business, they leave that door closed...."

Capital T Theatre's Hir
The Capital T Theatre production of Taylor Mac's absurdist satire puts the front lines of combat inside an American home
Arts Review  January 12, 2017, by Robert Faires
"...Isaac thought he was leaving the war zone when he made it home from his three-year tour of duty in Afghanistan, but it turns out the young Marine on mortuary detail was just trading one battlefront for another. The instant he steps inside his family's old, worn suburban bungalow and gets a look at its current state – a cunning reveal in Capital T Theatre's staging, as the whole house rotates from exterior view to interior – Isaac is met with chaos: a living room and kitchen so trashed-out that it looks like it was raided by a marauding army..."

Forever Plaid
Austin Theatre Project's staging of the popular musical hits all the right notes
Arts Review  August 27, 2015, by Elissa Russell
"...For this group of Plaids, the concert venue happens to be Austin's new Ground Floor Theatre, with staging courtesy of Austin Theatre Project co-founder Barbara Schuler and musical direction by ATP Artistic Director David Blackburn. The metatheatricality of the show is largely what makes it so fun, with the audience doubling as the fans at the group's big gig..."

Hyde Park Theatre and ScriptWorks' annual performance festival keeps giving artists a spot to launch a stage career in Austin
Arts Story  January 7, 2016, by Elizabeth Cobbe
"...FronteraFest, now entering its 23rd year, has become a tradition in Austin's annual arts calendar. For years, Hyde Park Theatre and ScriptWorks' unjuried jamboree of performances has followed the same format: a Short Fringe featuring five short pieces per evening for five weeks; a two-week Long Fringe that offers a handful of one-act and full-length shows; plus some works in unconventional locations, including a full day devoted to such works (Mi Casa Es Su Teatro)..."

Color Arc Productions' People of Color Christmas
With her new holiday comedy, theatre artist Christine Hoang makes a safe place for everyone
Arts Story  December 17, 2015, by Robert Faires
"...When Christine Hoang calls characters in her play People of Color Christmas: The White Elephant in the Room "misfit toys," she isn't just tossing off the phrase. This Vietnamese-American theatre artist watched her share of TV holiday specials as a kid, and the ones that most spoke to her were A Charlie Brown Christmas and Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer..."

Getting Political With The Tree Play and Robin Hood: An Elegy
Two new Austin plays tackle timely subjects
Arts Story  August 6, 2015, by Robert Faires
"...Theatre in summer can often feel like just a thicket of musicals. Every other show seems to be some all-singing, all-dancing spectacle, with crooning Okie cowpokes or boogieing Baltimore teens crowding the stage to lift our spirits in the dog days, to distract us from the oppressive heat..."

"We'll Always Have 807 Congress"
The Raging of the Elements, or Indoor Theatre in Austin -- Al Fresco
Arts Story  June 24, 1999, by Robi Polgar

DAILY Arts  August 8, 2016, by Robert Faires
"...Several of the 17 speakers were familiar faces from previous hearings and spent their time reiterating the urgency of the current situation regarding the high cost of being a creative in Austin right now. Up first was Madge Darlington of the Rude Mechanicals theatre collective who reminded the commissioners that the very space they were meeting in, the Off Center, which the Rudes had been stewards of for 17 years, would be no more come May 15, 2017..."

The Tree Play
For this story of a rain forest over a lifetime, Robi Polgar created a living, breathing poem
Arts Review  August 13, 2015, by Shanon Weaver
"...We were clearly seeing the beginning of something – the birth of an idea yet to grow and mature, though fully realized for its current purposes. Polgar had his cast literally breathe life into the play before leading us from the lobby into the performance space at Ground Floor Theatre, where we sat along the perimeter of a clearing in a suggested rain forest..."

Five Faces of Frankenstein
This Halloween, Austin serves up five freaky takes on Mary Shelley's mad doctor and his monster
Arts Story  October 22, 2015, by Robert Faires
"...Trouble Puppet Theatre Artistic Director Connor Hopkins thought Frankenstein would make a good puppet play, but since he found Shelley's novel "poor drama," he spiced it up in various ways, like giving it a steampunk edge, making the creature a fusion of animal and vegetable material – a "giant potato," he called it – and having him lead his creator on a merry chase across Europe that winds through an abandoned Romanian asylum and Paris' sewers during the Reign of Terror. Note: Halloween party after the Oct..."

DAILY Chronolog  October 11, 2016, by Wayne Alan Brenner
