DAILY Arts  August 28, 2015, by Wayne Alan Brenner

The Santaland Diaries
An infusion of Lee Eddy into 'The Santaland Diaries' makes Zach's holiday classic even more delightful
Arts Review  December 2, 2005, by Wayne Alan Brenner
"...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..."

Our Bodies, Our Selves
An unusual convergence of dramas dealing with women and disabilities prompts a conversation among four actors about what playwrights are trying to say through characters who are disabled, and how actors approach playing a disability.
Arts Story  March 22, 2002, by Robert Faires
"...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...."

Ladee Leroy
You and I may not share those things we keep deep inside, but Ladee Leroy will make you awfully glad that Lee Eddy does
Arts Review  June 11, 2004, by Robert Faires
"...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..."

The Ladee Leroy Show
In The Ladee Leroy Show, Lee Eddy's mostly one-woman show, the tall, lanky, slightly androgynous writer-actress can be a bit manic, a bit abrasive, and a bit loud, but she also can be quiet, innocent, dramatic, sincere, silly, and often just plain uncontrollably funny.
Arts Review  May 9, 2003, by Barry Pineo
"...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..."

Snakes and Ladders
'The Man From Orlando' team recalls the high stakes of making their lo-fi first feature
Screens Story  January 11, 2013, by Amy Gentry
"...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..."

Austin Theatre: What will be will be
Three Austin theatre artists – actress Lee Eddy, choreographer Robin Lewis, and Adam Sultan – dish about their visions of the year to come
Arts Story  December 29, 2006, by Hannah Kenah
"...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)...."

Mother Courage
Melba Martinez's legacy at Mary Moody Northen Theatre
Arts Story  August 13, 2004, by Robert Faires
"...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..."

Mustang Island Premieres at Dallas International Film Festival
Craig Elrod and Nathan Smith screen their latest starring Macon Blair
Screens Story  March 30, 2017, by Sean L. Malin
"...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."..."

Everything Is Established
Physical Plant's new work is a fast, funny, disturbing example of great Austin playmaking
Arts Review  February 19, 2015, by Elizabeth Cobbe
"...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...."

Vaudeville Vanya
St. Idiot Collective's 'Vaudeville Vanya' ambitiously seeks to explode a great old play with a great old medium, but it ends up a sheen of vaudeville brushed over a hellbent staging of Uncle Vanya
Arts Review  July 21, 2006, by Hannah Kenah
"...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..."

JournalCon comes to Austin.
Books Story  October 24, 2003, by Sarah Hepola
"...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...."

Hedda
In the dirigo group production Hedda, director Laura Somers reimagines Henrik Ibsen's classic as a perverse and sometimes brilliant Doris Day / Rock Hudson flick, coupling late 1950s zip -- party dresses and sweater vests, manhattans and vodka martinis, breezy entrances and exits -- with a forbidden sexuality that ratchets the tensions of Ibsen's play to a whole new level.
Arts Review  June 13, 2003, by Robi Polgar
"...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..."

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
"...-- 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. And you can see it after Jones finishes singing Billy Joel's "She's Always a Woman to Me" to her, his sober, downcast glance showing just how rare and heartfelt a thing he's shared; and when Ronny sings the same song to her husband, and Ken Bradley's furrowed brow and confounded gaze exposes a man struggling to comprehend what his wife is saying to him even as he suspects he'll never get it; and as Lee Eddy's Jeanine and Brent Werzner's Anthony trade guitars and, oh yes, intensely personal songs, and their pinched faces betray the desire of young people to hear music that pierces the veil of mystery in the universe -- and the way that, even if all they hear is strumming and mumbled words, they convince themselves they do; and of course, it's in those shell-shocked expressions worn by Catmull and Eddy at the start of the play...."
