To Kill a Mockingbird at St. Edward's University
The Mary Moody Northen Theatre staging of Harper Lee's novel is a shining example of a classic tale told well
Arts Review  November 19, 2015, by Shanon Weaver
"...The sheer beauty and innocence displayed as Scout obliviously stops a lynch mob elicits a tear or two, Tom Robinson's trial has the audience leaning in, and Bob Ewell's comeuppance at the hands of the as-yet-unseen Boo Radley still provokes gasps. The show is well lit by Kathryn Eader, particularly during the attack on Jem and Scout, though a few lighting shifts during the trial (presumably meant to shift mood?) are a bit distracting..."

Museum
Tina Howe's satirical study of the people viewing a contemporary art exhibit becomes a fast, over-the-top romp at St. Ed's
Arts Review  October 4, 2013, by Adam Roberts
"...The experiment begins as soon as one enters the theatre, which, thanks to scenic designer Leilah Stewart, properties designer Rachel Magee, and lighting designer Kathryn Eader, feels just like walking into an actual museum exhibit. Every detail, from the pedestals on which the curious "statues" are perched to the benches that demarcate the outside walls of the gallery, is right on..."

Under Construction
A lively collage of all-American memories at once thoughtful, funny, and poignant
Arts Review  October 5, 2012, by Jillian Owens
"...Making the script's conscious sentimentality palpable are T'Cie Mancuso's costumes that look like they jumped out of a Norman Rockwell painting (Mee's other inspiration); Leilah Stewart's versatile set, which becomes everything from dining table to automobile, and displays iconic American artifacts like a bowling pin and typewriter to great visual effect; and Kathryn Eader's lighting and Buzz Moran's sound, which create a sense of place for each scene...."

The Crucible
St. Ed's stages a chilling version of Arthur Miller's indictment of McCarthyism
Arts Review  February 24, 2012, by Jillian Owens
"...Edward's production converge seamlessly to give life to this bleak world, with strikingly simple scenic design by Christopher McCollum – sturdy, versatile wood tables and benches that complement Susan Branch Towne's rich, detailed period costumes. Kathryn Eader's fine lighting design mirrors the play's alternating moments of chaos and stillness, and Buzz Moran's creepy sound design cleverly manipulates the audience's emotions, making us feel like we're in a well-made horror movie..."

Exhibitionism
The thrill that comes from the bright, full, flashy, splashy sound of a brass band is the feeling you get from Austin Musical Theatre's production of Sweet Charity and to coin a phrase, how sweet it is.
Arts Review  May 17, 2002, by Robert Faires
"...In this show, even the chrome is brassy, given the way set designer Christopher McCollum wittily uses it to announce a certain kind of Sixties chic in interior design, in this case, for the bachelor pad of foreign film heartthrob Vittorio Vidal (David Hess, oozing charm as slick as his hair and alternately befuddled and bemused by our gal Charity). In fact, the show's whole approach to design is a brassy embrace of Sixties style, from McCollum's wall-o-Warhol, with Vittorio's face reproduced à la Andy in a floor-to-ceiling grid, to Neal Teguns' heavily fringed and flared, let-the-sunshine-in costumes to Kathryn Eader's Day-Glo lighting, which shines on the Fan-Dango dancers' sequined-within-an-inch-of-their-lives mini-dresses to literally dazzling effect...."
