"...The Zachary Scott Theatre Center's version of David Sedaris' The Santaland Diaries which is to say, Zach Artistic Director Dave Steakley's version of it returns to the stage this season with Lee Eddy as the Macy's Little Elf, and your reviewer couldn't be more pleased. But your reviewer is predisposed, having witnessed many of Eddy's previous outings, to admire the lanky woman's excursions on the boards..."
"...Directed by: Craig Elrod. Starring: Macon Blair, Lee Eddy, John Merriman, Molly Karrasch, Jason Newman, Byron Brown and Haley Alea Erickson...."
"...This convergence of dramas dealing with women and disabilities seemed an opportune time to discuss what playwrights are trying to say through characters who are disabled, and how actors approach playing a disability. So the Chronicle got together Lara Toner (Laura in The Glass Menagerie), Monika Bustamante (Dot in Blur), Lee Eddy (Francis in Blur), and Terry Galloway (Dinah in Lardo Weeping), for a conversation about their shows and what they mean...."
"...Deep inside, you keep things you never tell anyone: secret desires, insecurities, old grudges, childhood embarrassments you've never lived down, idiotic things you regretted the instant you said them, feelings about your job or family or significant other that you'd never share with them or anyone for fear of being misunderstood or looking foolish or hateful or weird, right? Well, Lee Eddy shares them. With the world..."
"...While it's possible not to like Lee Eddy, the person doing the disliking would have to be jealous of her pure storytelling ability, envious of her perceptive, multilayered, highly comic writing, or just downright misogynistic. Or misanthropic, as the case may be -- Eddy's a bit androgynous..."
"...In The Man From Orlando, Newman portrays a man saddled with the burden of repeatedly explaining that he is named Orlando, not from Orlando. Returning to his hometown of Priddy, Texas, after a stint with a ring of criminal off-duty lifeguards, Orlando confronts his past in the form of his dysfunctional family, his Olympic swimmer ex-girlfriend Virginia (Lee Eddy), and a gaggle of hapless volunteer firefighters..."
"...If 2006 had Austin's artists dancing 80 feet in the air, what feats are in store for us in 2007? The Chronicle dishes about the future with three of the people who are sure to be big players in the year to come: actress Lee Eddy (Salvage Vanguard Theater/St. Idiot Collective), choreographer Robin Lewis (TexARTS/Zachary Scott Theatre Center), and actor/composer Adam Sultan (Salvage Vanguard Theater)...."
"...This production of the international sensation is presented by Ground Floor Theatre – now finally open for business again – and it features a lineup of some of Austin's greatest and/or most beloved performers, including several performances en Español. The night I attended, the actor was Lee Eddy – who, to be honest, I would enjoy seeing perform a reading of anyone's dullest grocery list..."
"...And I ended up having a nervous breakdown. In fact, the day that I had my breakdown was the day that I met Lee Eddy..."
"...Lee Eddy, Ladee Leroy..."
"...Ed's theatre department, Martinez's push to transform the program into something grander and more challenging might have been setting her up for a big fall. But in the last several years, her approach began paying off in big ways: more students of a higher caliber joining the program; richer, more consistent work by them onstage; more unified work among the students developments recognized with three Austin Critics Table awards for ensemble acting and eight recipients of the "Deacon" Crain award for outstanding student work; more students graduating to advanced degree programs at top schools such as Carnegie Mellon and jobs at prominent theatres such as Actors Theatre of Louisville; more graduating into the ranks of the leading artists in Austin's theatre community (e.g., Lee Eddy, Jenny Larson, Bradley Carlin, Elizabeth Wakehouse, Andrea Skola, Brent Werzner, Jeffery Mills); and the big one a relationship with the Saratoga International Theatre Institute (aka the SITI Company), leading to an annual residency featuring cutting-edge training in the physical acting methods of Tadashi Suzuki and Viewpoints approach of Anne Bogart, regular guest work by SITI Company member J..."
"...Their new feature – which has its world premiere April 1 at the Dallas International Film Festival – was directed and co-written by Elrod, co-written and shot by Smith, and stars a who's who of local character actors, including John Merriman, Byron Brown, and real-life couple Macon Blair and Lee Eddy. For Elrod, who has had several shorts premiere at SXSW, including "Molly" (2014) and the 2010 Jury Award winner "Petting Sharks," the journey to Mustang Island's completion has been an odyssey: "This thing has been going for the longest time."..."
"...It begins with a direct-address declaration of what at first seems to be the entire meaning of the play, and the joy is in discovering how the details unfold and what they reveal. It relies heavily on the training and talents of its cast – in this case, a marvelous trio made up of Jeffery Mills, Michael Joplin, and Lee Eddy – who pull from backgrounds in improv, Viewpoints, clowning, classical theatre, and more to make the show into less of a play and more of an event...."
"...The vaudeville will return. It appears in breaks from the action of the play: Lee Eddy and Jeffery Mills box and thumb wrestle; Elizabeth Wakehouse becomes a dog-show damsel; Jason Newman rants; and Adriene Mishler performs a dream ballet..."
"...7) Lee Eddy in Ladee Leroy (Mary Moody Northen Theatre) It's easy to steal the stage with only one person up there, but Eddy did it by being bold, funny, and surprisingly sweet...."
"...Some good ones were shared later that afternoon at a packed panel called "For Better or Worse: How the Web Changed My Life." Bored at her office job, Lee Eddy used the company scanner and webcam to build her online journal, http://ladeeleroy.diaryland.com, on which she sounded off about her coworkers. One day, the boss called her in...."
"...The result is an excellent, combustible cocktail. As Lovborg, Lee Eddy provides a haunting, and haunted, character to stalk, and be stalked by, Kimlicko Jones' manipulative Hedda..."
