Mary Moody Northen Theatre's She Loves Me
This production at St. Edward's University knows just how to bring forth this modest musical's many charms
Arts Review  April 14, 2016, by Robert Faires
"...That director Nick Mayo understands this about She Loves Me is clear as soon as the relentlessly chipper delivery boy Arpad (Hollis McNutt, relentlessly chipper) pedals his beloved bike onto the Mary Moody Northen Theatre stage and the clerks arrive at Maraczek's, admiring the glory of the morning and dreaming about taking the day off to enjoy it. It's a moment of workplace camaraderie, the kind that blooms when the day-to-day duties fall away and those who share them don't have to be employees, they can just be people..."

Arts Story  December 31, 2014, by Robert Faires
"...1) THE STRANGE UNDOING OF PRUDENCIA HART (National Theatre of Scotland/Texas Performing Arts) On a Bass Concert Hall stage transmuted into a Scottish pub, five exuberant performers spun a lively tall tale of a lovelorn academic getting trapped in Lucifer's B&B.

As offbeat, vibrant, and eager to see wonder in the mundane as Rauschenberg's work, this boisterous joyride was so exhilarating that when it ended, I wanted it to start all over again...."
