"...She's always creating at least three things at once. Katherine Catmull has just returned to Austin from a West Coast sojourn (that included legs in Yellowstone and at Burning Man) to immediately jump into rehearsals for the next play on Capital T Theatre's season (Song About Himself, opening Oct..."

Poetry in Emotion
Katherine Catmull never intended to pursue a career in acting. In fact, she seriously avoided it for as long as she could, choosing instead to earn her degree in English literature. Why is revealed in this profile of one of Austin's most sophisticated and literate performers.
Arts Story  October 6, 2000, by Robi Polgar

The Radiant Road
Author Katherine Catmull elegantly summons a fairy-tale timelessness for this YA story of teen anxieties, fairies, and creativity
Arts Review  January 21, 2016, by Rosalind Faires
"...With The Radiant Road, Katherine Catmull elegantly summons that same fairy-tale timelessness, that gentle déjà vu that maybe we heard this tale as a bedtime story once when we were very, very small even when we know we are reading it for the first time. The second novel by this award-winning Austin stage actor – the follow-up to her enchanting Summer and Bird – follows the motherless, displaced Clare, a girl on the precipice of her teenage years, as she travels to Ireland with her father to return to the house she was born in – inside of which grows a tree that her mother's family has had guardianship of for generations..."

DAILY Books  October 8, 2012, by Wayne Alan Brenner
"...Of course we know that the first novel by local writer and actress Katherine Catmull is the lyrical, otherworldly adventure called Summer and Bird, about two young sisters on a quest to find their missing parents, and that Catmull will be at BookPeople to read from and sign the brand new Dutton hardcover tomorrow (Tuesday) night...."

He Happy Is
For Mark Pickell, Capital T Theatre is a source of joy
Arts Story  November 1, 2013, by Robert Faires
"..."Mark is the calmest director I have ever worked with, actually," says actor Katherine Catmull, which is saying something, considering that the directors she has worked with number in the dozens, and There Is a Happiness That Morning Is marks her third go-round with Pickell. "Even during tech week, when most directors, you know, their hair starts looking like they've stuck their fingers in an electrical socket, Mark just starts looking a bit tired."..."

The Iron Man
Longtime local stage phenom Ken Webster has a record to rival that of a Baseball Hall of Famer
Arts Story  April 13, 2007, by Robert Faires
"...In his case, they were based on the then-popular gothic soap opera Dark Shadows and could be seen for the bargain price of one penny. "And when neighborhood kids showed up without the penny, he would say briskly, 'Go back; ask your mom for one,'" according to actress and writer Katherine Catmull, Webster's partner in theatre and in life for 23 years now..."

To Build a Home
Four Austin writers discuss how they create their fantastic worlds
Arts Story  June 16, 2016, by Rosalind Faires
"...Stina Leicht, Marshall Ryan Maresca, Donna Dechen Birdwell, and Katherine Catmull all make Austin their home base, but each has introduced readers to utterly disparate domains. Leicht's first series, The Fey and the Fallen, hinged on supernatural goings-on during the Troubles in 1970s Ireland, while her most recent book, Cold Iron, is a flintlock fantasy that focuses on conflict between humans and elves..."

Hyde Park Theatre's The Quarry
Greg Pierce's play is rough and has sharp edges, but in the end there is heart that is worth discovering
Arts Review  October 8, 2015, by Elizabeth Cobbe
"...The hills of Vermont are not a place that's gotten lots of attention from American playwrights. Perhaps that's because, like Jean (Katherine Catmull), the center of The Quarry, it's a place where a lot of people would rather be left alone...."

The Post-Neanderthal Diet
The Post-Neanderthal Diet is a slight but enjoyable satire of quick-fix culture by Hans Frank (of Lonely Highway), in which guru Nubby Farnsworth Jr., a chain-smoking huckster who seems to have taken a swim in an oil leak, promises to improve your life with bizarre insights and a gag-inducing fruit-and-raw-meat smoothie.
Arts Review  February 7, 2003, by Sarah Hepola
"...Hans Frank (of Lonely Highway) wrote this satire of quick-fix culture (with additional material by Katherine Catmull and Ken Webster), and he stars as guru Nubby Farnsworth Jr., a chain-smoking huckster who seems to have taken a swim in an oil leak. Farnsworth's insights are delightfully bizarre: Cigarettes were in the Bible; the air could be rife with genital warts..."

Raised by Lesbians
In the Subterranean Theatre Company production of Raised by Lesbians, writer Leah Ryan and director Ken Webster transport the audience to the heart of The Who's "Teenage Wasteland," dealing with adolescence, lesbians, and men and women's notions of each other without laughing at teens or distorting them with nostalgia.
Arts Review  April 13, 2001, by Rob Curran
"...Middle America's other attraction to Joe is his mother. Alice, played by Chronicle book reviewer Katherine Catmull, loves talking theories about cats and dogs..."

The Emperor Jones
Arts Story  April 29, 1999, by Robi Polgar
"...For an actor sharing the stage with him, the effect of his confidence and depth can be exhilarating, if not a little frightening. "It is stronger and stranger and more interesting," says Katherine Catmull, who has played opposite Jones twice this year..."

How Austin's Theatrical Couples Keep Romance Alive Love's Labors Won
Arts Story  February 9, 1996, by Robert Faires
"...Which brings me to the curious thing I've noticed about theatrical twosomes, at least ones in this town: A lot of them make a long go of it. Of the two dozen thespian duos that I know, most are couples of longstanding, by which I mean several years: directors Michelle Metcalfe (Sherlock Holmes) and Robi Polgar (The Beggar's Opera): five years; actors Janelle Schremmer (Water Into Light) and Troy Schremmer (Goodnight Desdemona, Good Morning Juliet): five years; actor Lorne Loganbill (The Homecoming) and actor/composer Sterling Price-McKinney (The Late 20th-Century Love Affair): seven years; actor/musical director/composer Allen Robertson (Trio) and actor Meredith Roberston (Trio): 10 years; actor Katherine Catmull (The Homecoming) and actor/director Ken Webster (The Homecoming): 11 years; actors David Stahl (Tons of Money) and Hans Venable (Shear Madness): 13 years; writers/actors/directors Freddy Carnes (The Shoemaker and the Elves) and Mary Alice Carnes (The Beggar's Opera): 14 years; and that's just the tip of the valentine..."

Who Dares Try to Out-Author the Authors, Onstage and Off the Cuff?
Institution Theater improvisers wreak creativity on published works
DAILY Books  June 11, 2013, by Wayne Alan Brenner
"...The night I attended the show – just this past Friday – the featured author was Katherine Catmull, whose novel Summer and Bird is a sort of children's-literature-for-adults (You know: The way Neil Gaiman's Coraline is) and is as simultaneously lyrical and compelling as a narrative can be...."

Happy Days
With standout work by Katherine Catmull, Beckett's 'happy' play gets a revival to be grateful for
Arts Review  October 12, 2007, by Robert Faires
"...As Austin sees precious little Beckett nowadays, we're grateful to Capital T Theatre and director Mark Pickell for staging this play. We're even more grateful, however, for his enlisting the services of Katherine Catmull to portray Winnie..."

Something Someone Someplace Else
Like so many characters in American drama, the folks in Ann Marie Healey's Something Someone Someplace Else are trying to measure the distance between the life they have and the life they want, and Hyde Park Theatre's world premiere production is so rich in humor and warmth that we feel no distance between them and us.
Arts Review  April 18, 2003, by Robert Faires
"...You can see it here after Katherine Catmull's Ronny mentions her diary to David Jones' laconic B.G. -- this guy is easy in a pair of boots -- and then sips a beer: Her furtive glance toward him and flash of a smile reveal the thrill she feels at spilling a secret..."

Nonunion Actors: Raising It a Notch
Arts Story  June 9, 2000, by Robi Polgar
"...Katherine Catmull speaks blissfully of acting a string of "three extraordinary roles" in plays by Harold Pinter last year (Betrayal, A Kind of Alaska, and Ashes to Ashes): "I am so lucky ... Not being in Equity [means] getting to work with anyone whose talent and ideas excite me, on projects that makes me go, 'Oh, yes!' without having to worry about how much they can pay."..."

Positively Operatic
The Year in Austin Culture
Arts Story  January 7, 2000, by Robi Polgar
"...A Kind of Alaska (Subterranean Theatre Company) This remarkable and disturbing production, more than any other I saw this year, left an indelible mark on me. Katherine Catmull, pawing at her face in that bloody big bed, is an image never to be shaken off...."
