Speaking for Lowell
Every playwright needs a mouthpiece, an actor to communicate his vision to an audience, and Lowell Bartholomee has his in Robert Fisher.
Arts Story  July 26, 2002, by Wayne Alan Brenner
"...Capra had his Jimmy Stewart, Scorsese his Robert De Niro. Not to put too much of a strain on the comparison, Lowell Bartholomee has his Robert Fisher...."

Mouthing Off
Lowell Bartholomee has a lot to say, and he says it in plays that blaze like a Klieg instrument throwing gritty metrosphere of modern life into stark relief -- stark comic relief.
Arts Story  July 26, 2002, by Wayne Alan Brenner
"...Lowell Bartholomee ... yeah, the name's a bit of a mouthful -- and the man himself has more than a mouthful to say..."

Animation Station
Through ADVision, Austin has become a hotspot for producing English-dubbed anime. Who knew?
Screens Story  September 22, 2000, by Sarah Hepola
"...And, yes, even Joe York. ADV's Lowell Bartholomee and Charles Campbell admit they don't pony up the cash of companies like Human Code, Digital Anvil, or Origin -- who also employ local voice talent -- but ADV work is more frequent..."

Otaku* Overload!!!
After Monster Island Studios sank, Austin's acting community and Houston animé giant A.D. Vision unleashed talent bent on vengeance and redemption (*otaku = animé geek)
Screens Story  December 2, 2005, by Marc Savlov
"...It's standard practice, actually, for American distributors of animé to purchase the domestic rights to Japanese television series and then farm out the dubbing to other acting agencies. At Monster Island, Campbell's close connections with the Austin acting scene – particularly with writer/director Lowell Bartholomee – resulted in the company giving rise to its own very nearly in-house talent pool...."

The Middle of the Night
With its isolated farmhouse and unseen menace, The Middle of the Night may look like a conventional thriller, but playwright Lowell Bartholomee refuses to play by the rules, creating an offbeat drama that keeps us perpetually off-balance by playing against our expectations.
Arts Review  October 24, 2003, by Robert Faires
"...And yet, it turns out that we don't know anything -- at least not as the game is played in The Middle of the Night. After teasing us with this classic setup from horror and suspense films beyond number, playwright Lowell Bartholomee adamantly refuses to follow through on the conventions of the genre..."

Blah, Blah, Blah
In the 14 sketches that make up Blah, Blah, Blah, playwright Lowell Bartholomee skewers Hollywood with situations and dialogue that are clever and perceptive, but the actors seem to be working to put it across, straining even, when it really doesn't need the hard sell.
Arts Review  August 2, 2002, by Barry Pineo
"...Lowell Bartholomee wrote and directed these 14 sketches, gathered together under the title Blah, Blah, Blah, produced by Refraction Arts and Bayou Radio, and described on the program as "Seven Sharp Shorts and More, Featuring B Sides and Previously Unreleased Material." While some of the sketches seemingly have nothing to do with the movie industry, it is with the movies that Bartholomee is undeniably obsessed, and it is the movies that get addressed most often, with pieces about a rube that gets a line in a movie, a writer pitching a movie idea called Waiting for Godot, and an obsessed fan explaining the meaning of Casablanca, to name a few...."

DAILY Arts  July 3, 2013, by Robert Faires

Arts Story  June 28, 2013, by Robert Faires
"...The entire effort, dubbed Matney vs. Cancer – Fight!, has even spawned a video – an irreverent and hilarious one – from Rude Mechs company member Lowell Bartholomee, starring Matney as both himself and his leechy, obnoxious, freeloading Cancer..."

"...10b. Celebrity Crush (Refraction Arts Project): "How do I love thee? Let me count the ways."

Celebrity Crush
We've all got 'em, crushes on celebrities. At least, that's the premise of Refraction Arts' Celebrity Crush, and a bunch of talented artists reveal theirs in some quite entertaining ways.
Arts Review  March 8, 2002, by Barry Pineo
"...Some of us have 'em in groups, like Jeremy Carpenter, Brandon Crow, Robert S. Fisher, and Lowell Bartholomee, who meet, albeit briefly, to discuss Christina Ricci (especially her breasts) and which of her incarnations they most covet (Wednesday in The Addams Family)..."

Acting Tipsy
Local thespians reveal how they tackle the challenge of playing drunk onstage
Arts Story  July 5, 2013, by Robert Faires
"...Imbibing before or during shows, however, isn't without its consequences. Lowell Bartholomee remembers an actor showing up for a performance of Macbeth "with that impressive booze-sweat smell, the kind that stings your nostrils from a yard away." Alas, he was supposed to murder Bartholomee's Banquo during a carefully choreographed fight with iron broadswords..."

In On It
The Dirigo Group production of Daniel MacIvor's 'In On It,' with two actors in multiple roles, succeeds beyond an exercise in acting and becomes a heartbreaking wound that feels good to receive
Arts Review  July 21, 2006, by Wayne Alan Brenner
"...The actors are Robert Faires (better known in these pages as the Chronicle's arts editor) and Scotty Roberts. They're working under the direction of Lowell Bartholomee, who helms this production for the Dirigo Group, and they're working so well in this show that, sometimes, it doesn't seem that they're working at all..."

Off-Off-Broadway Bound
An Austinite's account of taking the stage in New York City
Arts Story  July 29, 2005, by Lowell Bartholomee
"...Next month, when the New York International Fringe Festival, the largest theatrical fringe festival in North America, gets under way, the 200-plus show lineup will include three Austin theatre productions: HIT., from a chick & a dude productions; The Philomel Project: a barbarous pleasure, from Refraction Arts Project; and Wade, by Steve Barney.

With tempOdyssey, which follows a temporary office worker named Genny through her first and only day in a new office, Dan Dietz has written an amazing play, and the amazingly talented cast gets this world premiere off to a great start, but an interminable second act makes this voyage one you'll be glad is over.
Arts Review  June 13, 2003, by Barry Pineo
"...More good news: Director Jason Neulander has an amazingly talented cast for this world premiere. Joey Hood's first act as Jim, a permanent male temp, is so relaxed and natural, it looks more like life than acting; Lowell Bartholomee, while barely moving a muscle, elicits raucous laughter as a scientist explaining black holes; Shannon Grounds matches Bartholomee in the role of a temp guru; and Douglas Taylor gives the most controlled, disciplined, specific performance I've seen him deliver as Genny's Deep South chicken-farmer father..."

In Bash, a collection of monologues by Neil LaBute, the protagonists appear to be considerate, decent people, but in the stories they share they prove themselves capable of committing crimes straight out of Greek tragedy, and the dirigo group production achieves a breezy intimacy with the audience, engaging us so thoroughly that when the darkness falls, we find it hard to abandon them.
Arts Review  December 6, 2002, by Robert Faires
"...And there's the affable guy in the suit, a Mormon businessman and family man seeking to unburden himself to a stranger. Lowell Bartholomee gives him an unassuming attitude, that of the guy next door, a fellow you'd like to hang out with, a regular Joe..."

You Made Me Love You
What is this thing called crush? Specifically, what makes us swoon over people we've never met? The creative minds at the Blue Theater have gathered over two dozen actors, musicians, artists, writers, and puppeteers to create art, wall-writing, and short performance pieces to address that very question in Celebrity Crush.
Arts Story  March 1, 2002, by Katherine Catmull
"...Playwright, actor, and heterosexual Lowell Bartholomee will do a piece about "my crush on [English film actor] Ralph Fiennes in 1994. Very short-lived and a first and last of its kind." As emcee of Celebrity Crush, he will also perform "some short-shorts that feature crushes on Christina Ricci, Courtney Love, and Sallie Chisum in the John Wayne movie Chisum" -- the latter his first crush, at the age of 4...."

Certainly that's problematic?..."
