Stage, Left: Exit Josh Meyer
The co-honcho of Rubber Repertory heads for Hollywood
DAILY Chronolog May 14, 2012, by Wayne Alan Brenner
"...Worse: He's left the city, the entire state. He's moved to that City of Angels on the far west coast of this grayed nation of ours.
I mean, he's gone to L.A.
Josh Meyer, after more than a decade of creative fomenting and unforgettable theatrical production in partnership with his friend (and fellow University of Kansas alum) Matt Hislope, is no longer among us in this land of weed and breakfast tacos.
But why has he gone? To seek his fortune?
To seek romance, more like.
The re-kindling of romance, to be precise.
And to exercise a few times a week with Richard Simmons.
NB: Those last two items are true but unrelated.
So I figured a sort of exit interview was required here..."
A Transcript of Passing Fancy
Q&A with Rubber Repertory's Matt Hislope and Josh Meyer
Arts Story October 10, 2008

Thus do we provide this Web Extra of a few unpublished chunks of the interview that was mined to create "The Choice Is Yours," by Wayne Alan Brenner..."

The Choice Is Yours
Rubber Repertory's Casket of Passing Fancy makes you 500 offers you can't reuse
Arts Story October 10, 2008, by Wayne Alan Brenner
"..."Most of the women were bleeding from their anuses after two days, for some unexplained reason," says Rubber Repertory's Josh Meyer, waiting in line at Luby's Cafeteria with me and his partner in theatre, Matt Hislope. He's talking about an experience they had during a study-abroad program in Greece, via the University of Kansas..."
We Don't Think They're Not in Kansas Anymore
Austin's Rubber Repertory rents a former church in Kansas and fills it with a diversity of artists
Arts Story August 2, 2013, by Wayne Alan Brenner
"...Josh Meyer and Matt Hislope, founders and directors of the Rubber Repertory theatre company, had gone on indefinite hiatus following their original, stunning Jubilee at the Off Center in April 2012. After 10 years of bringing this city such odd and compelling spectacles as the Biography of Physical Sensation and Surprise Annie and The Casket of Passing Fancy and Mister Z Loves Company, the two University of Kansas alumni staged their final public show and parted ways: Meyer to L.A., to ply his commercial-acting trade and reignite a romantic connection there; Hislope to return to a gig among the hardworking jesters of Esther's Follies on Sixth Street...."
Film Review May 19, 2000, by Marc Savlov
Teen sex farce meets teen gross-out comedy, which I suppose makes this a sexy movie for gross teens, or vice versa. All I know is that guys are strongly advised...
"...Starring: Amy Smart, Tom Green, Rachel Blanchard, Andy Dick, Fred Ward, Paulo Costanzo, D.j. Qualls, Seann William Scott and Breckin Meyer..."
'Biography of Physical Sensation'
Which chair will be just right for you in Rubber Repertory's new show?
Arts Story October 15, 2010, by Katherine Catmull
"..."Can we shoot the audience? Can we light them on fire? Can we kiss them tenderly and lay them down on beds of grass?" – Josh Meyer..."
How far can Rubber Repertory push you?
Arts Story April 13, 2012, by Dan Solomon
"..."We wanted to put on a show," his creative partner, Josh Meyer – the moving-to-California half of the duo – adds. To help them create the performance that is Jubilee, running now at the Off Center, they looked to cast 10 people they'd never worked with before – but whom they trusted to follow them wherever they might be going...."
The performers in 'Red Cans' have to stuff themselves into tiny laundry hampers where they can't see, must use their arms to walk, and get horribly cramped and bruised, but you won't hear them complain
Arts Story August 4, 2006, by Hannah Kenah
"...Shouts Josh Meyer at a rehearsal for Red Cans, opening this week at the Off Center. Josh must shout such things because his actors are encased in red plastic and have limited access to sound, sight, and limbs..."
Wallace Shawn's 'A Thought in Three Parts': The author approves
After making a special visit to Austin to see Rubber Repertory's production of his play A Thought in Three Parts, Wallace Shawn called it 'an incredible moment in his life'
Arts Story June 1, 2007, by Robert Faires
"...Matt Hislope and Josh Meyer of Rubber Repertory had been thrilled just to have Wallace Shawn give his blessing to their production of his notoriously sexual 1975 play, A Thought in Three Parts. Then Wally came to town..."
Who the hell is Annie La Ganga?
Arts Story October 7, 2011, by Wayne Alan Brenner
"...She's not Josh Meyer or Matt Hislope: They're the artistic directors of Rubber Repertory, the company behind Biography of Physical Sensation and The Casket of Passing Fancy and Wallace Shawn's X-rated, never-before-produced-in-America A Thought in Three Parts. But Meyer and Hislope – that adventurous Mutt and Jeff duo who also brought clever Dial-a-Tune songster Dick Price back into the limelight – are friends of La Ganga's..."
Holes Before Bedtime
Dan Basila's 'Holes Before Bedtime' is an unsettling work of art; but it is a work of art, as opposed to a mere vulgar spectacle, and that's the really weird thing about it
Arts Review June 17, 2005, by Wayne Alan Brenner
"...First, because of the staging and "vigorously choreographed" is a big clue. The direction provided by Matt Hislope and Josh Meyer is nothing short of impressive..."
This show is two glorious, uncut hours of Annie La Ganga manifesting theatre
Arts Review October 28, 2011, by Jillian Owens
"...Annie La Ganga manifests theatre. And her directors/producers/friends Josh Meyer and Matt Hislope of Rubber Repertory have likewise manifested 12 top-secret surprise venues for their latest production, Surprise Annie, which is exactly what it sounds like: two glorious, uncut hours of Annie...."
Mister Z Loves Company
Rubber Repertory's revival is a marriage of depravity and delight, of filth and fantasy
Arts Review April 17, 2009, by Wayne Alan Brenner
"...Oh my, yes, there's some simulated butt-rapery and faux shit-eating that occurs as part of this disgusting, brilliant spectacle from Josh Meyer and Matt Hislope of Rubber Repertory. The company that most recently brought us The Casket of Passing Fancy – and, before that, Wallace Shawn's A Thought in Three Parts – is not a company to eschew the sexual, the scatological, the relentlessly squicky...."
A Thought in Three Parts
In staging Wallace Shawn's famously unproduced and pornographic A Thought in Three Parts, it'd be so easy to stumble or misjudge, but Rubber Repertory has gotten almost everything stunningly right
Arts Review May 18, 2007, by Wayne Alan Brenner
"...And the relative barbarity of the next part, the sexual abandon (such that "abandon" is a corseted, petticoated understatement) of the next part is foreshadowed only subtly: by the woman's wearing a pearl necklace with the first of several newly purchased outfits she models for her affection-starved mate. Surely that wasn't mere coincidence: Directors Matt Hislope, Josh Meyer, and Carlos Treviño are both too canny and too joyously perverse for that to have been coincidence...."
Dionysus in 69
The Rude Mechs' re-creation lets us experience a tragedy in a rare and personal way
Arts Review December 18, 2009, by Robert Faires
"...But in their diligent efforts to reconstruct this revolutionary production as faithfully as they can, the Rudes have uncharacteristically confined themselves within the choices and movements of other actors. Thomas Graves is not just playing Dionysus but playing the original production's William Finley playing Dionysus; we get Josh Meyer as William Shepherd as Pentheus..."

In producing Wallace Shawn's The Fever, Physical Plant Theater issues a call to think, from your car radio, and it's worth heeding
Arts Review June 25, 2004, by Robi Polgar
"...Physical Plant Theater has always found ways to present plays that challenge the audience's senses, that refine, if not redefine, what "going to the theatre" is all about. And with its production of Wallace Shawn's The Fever, Plant directors Josh Meyer and Carlos Trevino are again attempting to hone theatre out of the unexpected..."
Mister Z Loves Company: An X-Rated Self-Help Odyssey
Local Arts Reviews
Arts Review October 17, 2003, by Heather Barfield Cole
"...The first song's choreographed sexual poses and reference to Crisco prepare us for the onslaught of scatology and shivers. Matt Hislope as Mister Z does indeed love his Company, played by Josh Meyer, who wields the power to please through a lubricated pole tip and glory hole trapped in a locked chest..."
What's Up with Matt "Rubber Repertory" Hislope, Lately?
Esther's Follies, mostly, but let's not forget that other thing
DAILY Chronolog September 11, 2012, by Wayne Alan Brenner
"...Well, we call him Rubber Repertory's Matt Hislope … but now that Rubber Rep co-founder Josh Meyer has absconded to L.A. to be with his true love and to pursue an acting career (and, no kidding, exercise classes with Richard Simmons), and so the brilliant theatre company's on indefinite hiatus, maybe calling Hislope that is a misnomer?..."
