Only the Fourth Wall Is Forever
After 10 years, Salvage Vanguard Theater is moving on
Arts Story  June 23, 2016, by Wayne Alan Brenner
"...Graphic designer? Hell, that Jemison sparkled in the staged readings of Craig Staggs' Earp script, portraying Big Nose Kate in the soon-to-be-animated Western farce, voicing arch dialogue among the likes of Chris Cubas and Kelli Bland and Jason Liebrecht and more, in SVT's smaller studio theatre right off the lobby. And the studio space itself, its bare-boned black box an ever-changing smorgasbord of performative diversity, hosting the No Shame Theatre showcase as wrangled twice each month by Kerri Lendo; and the Weird! True Hollywood Tales series by this year's Funniest Person in Austin winner, Lashonda Lester; and the improvised spectacles of Get Up and the Knuckleball Now and RhinoDino and others following in the wake of Gnap!'s Guilds of Steel and Showdown and False Matters; and the multimedia, Asian-focused explorations of Leng Wong's Lucky Chaos company; and the hilarious rodential antics of The Ratgirls Go to Hell...."

'Pictures of Superheroes' Packs in the Austin Comedy Talent
Quirky comedy filled with familiar faces
Screens Story  October 19, 2012, by Marc Savlov
"...Soderberghian undertones aside, Pictures of Superheroes is a tightly edited look at the hapless, inertial life of maid-for-hire Marie (played to deadpan perfection by Kerri Lendo) as it intersects with manic businessman Eric (McCormick, going for full-bore suit-and-tie lunacy), candy-devouring man-child Joe (John Merriman), and Eric (Byron Brown), Marie's sleazy, clueless ex-boyfriend. Maybe it's a film about the existential ennui of Marie's dull grind of a life, or possibly a celebration of adults who eat ice cream for breakfast; mainly, though, Pictures of Superheroes is a terrific, and odd, ensemble piece with what seems like at least half of Austin's best actors popping up in every other scene...."
