Arts Story  June 4, 2015, by Robert Faires

The Playing of the Shrew
Ballerina Allysin Paino reveals more about taming Kate for Ballet Austin's 'Shrew'
Arts Story  April 6, 2007, by Robert Faires
"...When Ballet Austin Artistic Director Stephen Mills first turned The Taming of the Shrew into a ballet four years ago, he bestowed the plum role of Kate on Allysin Paino, who tore into the role with a comic ferocity that was both hilarious and amazing to see. This week, Mills is reviving the ballet with Paino reprising her role as the Shakespearean spitfire, so the Chronicle checked in with her about the pleasures of playing Kate and the demands of the role...."

Arts Story  October 8, 2004, by Robert Faires
"...Austin Playhouse was the big winner in the comedy category, going four for four in acting awards. With one more award for Michael Stuart's musical turn in its production of Kiss Me Kate, Austin Playhouse matched the five acting awards taken home by the Zachary Scott Theatre Center: three in musical productions and a pair for its version of Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? The State Theater Company's spooky staging of The Woman in Black snagged three awards in the technical category..."

Cole Porter's 'Kiss Me Kate' is revived by the Austin Playhouse in such an atmosphere of fun (and ever-so-slightly wicked humor) that the production is rather endearing

Four Eyes, Three Dimensions
Alamo brings in big technology for 'Little Expo'
Screens Story  June 18, 2004, by Marc Savlov
"...Last week's 3-D screening of Kiss Me Kate was, according to Alamo owner Tim League, a resounding success, with "Technicolor images exploding off the screen. The polarized lenses we're using work on essentially the same premise as what's called the anaglyphic, red-and-blue-lens style of 3-D, but ours is much more intense."..."

DAILY Screens  January 3, 2008, by Josh Rosenblatt
"...On a sad note, during production, co-star Shia LaBeouf slips on a mislaid Nazi uniform, crashes into a green screen, and dies. Lucas’ children weep. June After only eight episodes, the strike-shortened fourth season of Lost ends with a cliff-hanger involving Kate, Sawyer, Jack, a family of pygmy gorillas, a gum-gum tree, 17 lightly toasted corned-beef sandwiches, and an unsigned copy of the Magna Carta..."

Let Him Entertain You
Why producer Charles Duggan is staging the biggest holiday spectacular Austin's ever seen
Arts Story  December 25, 2009, by Robert Faires
"...And when he left Georgetown University Law Center with a degree and started practicing corporate, real estate, and entertainment law in San Francisco, it led to him gaining some clients from the connections made through those shows. About that time, Duggan also found a mentor in Arnold Saint Subber, the man credited with hatching the idea for Kiss Me, Kate (after stage-managing a production of The Taming of the Shrew starring Alfred Lunt and Lynn Fontanne) and who co-produced its original Broadway run, as well as produced on Broadway William Inge's The Dark at the Top of the Stairs, a Mike Nichols-directed revival of Lillian Hellman's The Little Foxes with Anne Bancroft and George C..."

Lot of Livin' to Do
For 15 years, Paul Beutel has managed Austin's Paramount Theatre, programming its popular film series and live shows and bringing it back from financial ruin, and he still puts in six to seven days a week there. Where do his passion and devotion spring from? Would you believe Bye Bye Birdie?
Arts Story  August 25, 2000, by Robert Faires
"...Once you know about The Bye Bye Birdie Experience, everything about Paul Beutel falls into place: his love of musicals, his film degree, his stints as an American-Statesman film critic and a UT Performing Arts Center publicist, his years as a song-and-dance man in local musical productions, his programming of the Paramount's Summer Movie Classics series, and especially his 15 years of service -- much of it above and beyond the call of duty -- to Austin's jewel of theatres. I mean, here's a guy who breathes celluloid, who gets a kick out of persuading the big Hollywood studios to strike new prints of their classic films so he can show them in Austin, who gets tickled at the prospect of running William Castle's old B-movie fright flick The Tingler with its original buzzer-in-the-seat gimmick or the movie version of Kiss Me Kate in 3-D, with everyone wearing glasses..."

In Memoriam: Ken Johnson
Remembering the versatile theatre artist, who died March 2
DAILY Arts  March 8, 2018, by Robert Faires
"...When John Bernardoni and friends reopened the Paramount Theatre in 1975, Johnson mounted a Center Stage production of West Side Story there that helped give the reopened venue credibility and confirm that the old performance palace could still be a home for theatre. (Johnson staged Carnival and Kiss Me Kate there in subsequent summers.) [image-3]..."

Comin' at Ya!
3-D is back on the big screen -- again.
Screens Story  July 25, 2003, by Ken Lieck
"...While many think of 1950s 3-D as cheap horror and action fare, the truth is that alongside House of Wax and It Came From Outer Space, classics like Hitchcock's Dial M for Murder and John Wayne's Hondo were also shot and shown in 3-D. So was Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis' Money From Home, the lavish musical Kiss Me Kate, and the noir classic I, the Jury..."

The stage musical version of The Lion King finally lands in Texas, and even four years into its Broadway run, the show still truly creates a world of wonders.
Arts Column  July 19, 2002, by Robert Faires
"...There isn't an artist who doesn't excel, who isn't a pleasure to watch, and that includes UT-Austin alum Blake Hammond as Pumbaa the warthog. Hammond hits this prestigious national tour after a string of Broadway appearances in the revivals of Kiss Me Kate, The Music Man, and On the Town...."
