Arts Story  July 20, 2007, by Barry Pineo
"...Rude Mechanicals, Austin's best-known theatre collective, has received extensive recognition for artistic excellence since its inception in 1995: dozens of local theatre nominations and awards, voted Austin's Best Theatre Company in the Chronicle "Best of Austin" readers poll four years in a row, an off-Broadway run and two national tours of Lipstick Traces, and currently an international tour of Get Your War On, to name just a few. But the Rudes recently received a grant from Impact Austin that they must place among the most illustrious of their achievements...."

The third show in the Fixing Shakespeare series makes his mess of a play about the Trojan War hilarious and even engrossing
Arts Review  March 14, 2018, by Elizabeth Cobbe
"...Enter the Fixing Shakespeare series, courtesy of the Rude Mechanicals and Kirk Lynn as the credited writer. The third show in the series, Fixing Troilus and Cressida follows the same development concept: Replace all of Shakespeare's language with contemporary English and then edit like crazy..."

At his BookPeople appearance on Friday, Aug. 2, 7pm, Ethan Hawke and his Ash Wednesday will be joined by the Rude Mechanicals' mega-talented Sarah Richardson.
Books Story  August 2, 2002, by Shawn Badgley
"...2, 7pm (with the Texas Monthly book group meeting at 5:30pm to discuss his second effort). The reason I bring that up is because Hawke has asked the Rude Mechanicals' Sarah Richardson (In the House of Moles, WAR, Requiem for Tesla, Big Love, The Laramie Project) to join him..."

Rude Mechs
The Rudes' next show gets tapped for a prestigious New Play Development Project
Arts Story  November 7, 2008, by Robert Faires
"...Need more proof that Austin's own Rude Mechanicals are on the national radar for making new theatre? Try this: The collective has just received a prestigious little grant of $20,000 to support its next homegrown production. What makes it noteworthy – on top of that five-figure dollar amount – is that it's from the National Endowment for the Arts New Play Development Program, a new initiative launched by the federal agency in partnership with the Washington, D.C., theatre Arena Stage..."

Okay Mountain/Rude Mechs
The two local art groups are off to make mischief at a pair of international festivals
Arts Story  November 27, 2009, by Robert Faires
"...Meanwhile, next spring, the Rude Mechanicals will be firing The Method Gun once more, this time at the 2010 Humana Festival of New American Plays produced by the Actors Theatre of Louisville in Louisville, Ky. This will be the third version of this exploration of the life and techniques of Stella Burden, actor-training guru of the Sixties and Seventies, whose technique, the Approach, was dubbed "the most dangerous acting technique in the world." But just as the restless Rudes made changes to the piece that premiered at the Long Center in 2008 when they staged it at the Off Center the following year, they'll be reworking the piece yet again for Humana..."

Two Generations, One Art
Like twins who have grown up apart and are finally reunited, writer-performer Terry Galloway and the Austin theatre company Rude Mechanicals are creative soulmates who have at last discovered their kinship through their collaboration on Galloway's dark comedy In the House of the Moles.
Arts Story  February 25, 2000, by Robert Faires
"...Any physical resemblance between writer-performer Terry Galloway and her "sisters" in the Rude Mechanicals theatre company is purely coincidental. After all, these women are not her blood relations..."

Everything Is Possible ... Again
Seemingly unadaptable, Greil Marcus' 1989 opus Lipstick Traces proved to be the foundation for the Rude Mechanicals' strongest theatre work to date. As they revive their hit adaptation, the Rude Mechs reflect on its creation, its success, working as a collective, and being told by Marcus, "You staged the book I wanted to write."
Arts Story  September 1, 2000, by Ada Calhoun
"...That's the spirit which the Rude Mechanicals' stage adaptation so enticingly captures. So seemingly unadaptable, what with its plentiful sidebars, its sweeping scope, Marcus' 1989 opus proved to be the foundation for the Austin theatre collective's strongest and most successful work to date..."

At Long Last Love
Love will get you when you least expect it. So it goes in Charles Mee's Big Love, a vigorous update of the ancient Greek drama The Suppliants, and so it went when the Rude Mechanicals theatre company saw the play. They fell unexpectedly and unabashedly head over heels for it and are staging it now in what they describe as "a huge love affair."
Arts Story  August 31, 2001, by Robert Faires
"...And as it is with the characters in Big Love, so it is with the Rude Mechanicals and the play itself. A mess of Rudes, the collective of wily young theatre artists that opens its own production of Big Love this week at the Off Center, were present at the Humana Festival of New American Plays in Louisville, Ky., last year and went to the premiere production of the play..."

The Secret History of the Off Center
Looking back at the former home of the Rude Mechs and why it mattered
Arts Story  June 29, 2017, by Robert Faires
"...Its rawness suited a collective that took its name from the rough laborers of A Midsummer Night's Dream. Oh, sure, the group has at times cultivated a rep for being brash and offensive, leading many to interpret their "rudeness" in that sense, but these Rude Mechanicals also share much with their Shakespearean namesakes: honesty, loyalty, big hearts, an unshakable belief in the power of play, and pride in being craftsmen – Austin's Rudes, like Athens', make things with their hands..."

'Bacchae' to the Future
How in (a Greek) god's name can the Rude Mechs re-create Dionysus in 69 in '09?
Arts Story  November 27, 2009, by Robert Faires
"...The key difference here is that Schechner doesn't need to bring a band of dancing, drinking, true-believing maenads with him; they're already here. Local theatrical mavericks the Rude Mechanicals have been carrying the torch of the Performance Group and incorporating many of its tradition-busting practices into their own productions for 13 years now..."

Young Guns and Typewriters
Arts Story  September 18, 1998
