Salvage Vanguard Theater: The rebel sets down roots
After 13 years of staging shows in bars and other companies' theatres, Salvage Vanguard Theater is opening its own all-purpose arts space in a 9,600-square-foot warehouse on Manor Road
Arts Story  June 8, 2007, by Robert Faires
"...Time was, Salvage Vanguard Theater spent all its time in bars. That is, that's where the rebel company produced all its shows, the better to tap its target audience of under-30s who wouldn't be caught dead (or at least sober) in a mainstream arts venue..."

Salvage Vanguard Theater: Neulander ends his run
After 13 years of running Salvage Vanguard Theater, Artistic Director Jason Neulander is moving on
Arts Story  December 14, 2007, by Robert Faires
"...In the 13 years that Salvage Vanguard Theater has been rocking the local theatre scene, he's been the one constant. Whether the company was mounting shows in the Electric Lounge or Hogg Auditorium, whether it was staging edgy new dramas like Caridad Svich's Fugitive Pieces or retro sci-fi spoofs like The Intergalactic Nemesis, Jason Neulander was always at the helm, beating the drum for SVT...."

Salvage Vanguard Theater's Thr3e Zisters
This zombified take on Chekhov gets reanimated right when we need women who will bite back at the patriarchy
Arts Review  February 16, 2017, by Robert Faires
"...For in Lola B. Pierson's deconstruction of Anton Chekhov's Three Sisters, first staged by Salvage Vanguard Theater in 2015, the siblings who famously pined for Moscow are, you could say, grabbed by the pussy and yanked from the grave by a bunch of men who, like so many of those testosterone-fueled prigs in the statehouse and the White House, seek to possess and control women out of the belief it's their God-given right to do so...."

Salvage Vanguard Theater's Denim Doves
Adrienne Dawes' play takes the idea of postapocalyptic sister wives in an original, amusing direction
Arts Review  January 28, 2016, by Elizabeth Cobbe
"...It's not uncommon for shows that premiere locally to enjoy another production in the not-too-distant future. With a strong ensemble and creative direction from Larson and Florinda Bryant (who plays Fifth Wife), Denim Doves is certainly worth seeing during this busy time in the theatrical season, and if it returns after coalescing a little more, it may prove one of the more exciting creations to come from Salvage Vanguard Theater's season. Denim DovesSalvage Vanguard Theater, 2803 Manor Rd. Through Feb..."

Salvage Vanguard Theater: Countdown to blastoff for 'Intergalactic' tour
Salvage Vanguard Theater launches 'The Intergalactic Nemesis,' its homegrown spoof of sci-fi serials, on a mission to seek out new life and new civilizations – or at least new fans – in seven cities across the country
Arts Story  September 1, 2006, by Robert Faires
"...This time next week, Salvage Vanguard Theater will be deep in launch mode for the national tour of The Intergalactic Nemesis. Since its birth in the caffeinated confines of Little City a decade ago, SVT's homegrown spoof of sci-fi serials from the Golden Age of Radio has been a hit with local audiences, and now SVT is hoping it will be with audiences across the land..."

Salvage Vanguard Theater's With Great Difficulty Alice Sits
Hannah Kenah's new play presents an unsettling battle of wills between a mother and daughter before birth
Arts Review  November 17, 2016, by Elizabeth Cobbe
"...This first production from Salvage Vanguard Theater after losing its Manor Road space is a mix of abrupt imagery and inverted symbolism. Under the direction of SVT Artistic Director Jenny Larson, actors proceed from moment to moment deliberately, with silences given significant weight..."

Arts Story  March 26, 2004, by Robert Faires

Loverboy at ColdTowne Theater
This troupe's improvised scenes based on personal sex stories prove ColdTowne is still a fun place to catch local comedy's up-and-comers
Arts Review  June 30, 2016, by Ashley Moreno
"...With the closing of Salvage Vanguard Theater, it feels a little like the suits are bulldozing over this town's artistic identity, one venue at a time. But on the stretch of Airport between I-35 and Koenig, ColdTowne Theater still flies the flag for comedic performance in Austin − as it has for the past 10 years..."

Stella Adler and the American Theater
UT's Harry Ransom Center, which acquired the complete archive of Stella Adler, celebrates her impact on American acting in the symposium Stella Adler and the American Theater
Arts Story  February 17, 2006, by Barry Pineo
"...In the 1930s, Adler was a member of the Group Theatre, which pioneered the idea of the ensemble acting company. Local stage companies such as Salvage Vanguard Theater, Rude Mechs, and Bedlam Faction are founded on the same principles, and even local companies not recognized as ensemble companies, such as the Zachary Scott Theatre Center and Austin Playhouse, have groups of actors identified with them..."

New Works Theater Community
Austin theatre groups band together and land $90,000 to support making new work
Arts Story  October 29, 2010, by Robert Faires
"...The New Works Theater Community, as this confederation is called, echoes previous efforts in the stage scene to join together as a community – the Austin Circle of Theaters in the Seventies, the RAT Conference in the Nineties – but it's the first time such an endeavor has been directed toward new play development or won this kind of financial backing. The spark for it actually came from Mellon's national survey on the development and support for new theatrical work, when David Dower, formerly of San Francisco's Z Space Studio and currently with Washington, D.C.'s Arena Stage, made a trip to town..."

Arts Story  March 19, 2010, by Robert Faires
"...People are serious. True, we've lost one of the two companies devoted exclusively to puppetry (see "Geppetto Dreams Puppet Company"), but Trouble Puppet Theater Company looks to be picking up the slack, getting funding from the Jim Henson Foundation, attending the O'Neill National Puppetry Conference at the Eugene O'Neill Theater Center, and now launching this resident artist program, with which Trouble Puppet will bring to Austin puppet artists from around the world, giving them workspace, technical support, and performers so they can experiment with puppet design and workshop new pieces...."

The history of Salvage Vanguard Theater's unlikely sci-fi success, The Intergalactic Nemesis
Arts Story  July 25, 2008, by Robert Faires
"...Yet here it is, 12 years later, and that show, The Intergalactic Nemesis, is still feeling the love. Salvage Vanguard Theater's affectionate spoof of the cliff-hangers of yesteryear, performed in the manner of a radio drama, with actors holding scripts in front of microphones and sound effects provided live by Foley artists, has become one of Austin's rare theatrical sensations: a hit with audiences from the first performance, which has had multiple revivals, spawned two sequels, and toured across the country..."

Review: The Cherry Bowl
Chekhov gets a pie in the face in this silent spoof
DAILY Arts  November 21, 2013, by Stacy Alexander Evans
"...Woody Allen’s film Love and Death is undoubtedly a mocking love letter to Fyodor Dostoyevsky. In the tradition of skewering Russian literary giants, Austin’s own Ben Schave sends up Anton Chekhov in Gnap! Theater Project’s The Cherry Bowl, now onstage at Salvage Vanguard Theater...."

The Doctor Is In
Eugene Chadbourne pulls a graveyard shift
DAILY Music  December 15, 2008, by Doug Freeman
"...Last Tuesday, as Eugene Chadbourne set up in the Salvage Vanguard Theater, rain and hail began to pelt the metal roof in a spattering percussion that accompanied the furious flurry of banjo licks from the mad Doctor. As he trolled through his massive songbook, including “Checkers of Blood” and a new political screed about the recent election, he contorted the instrument into unnatural sounds that defied its typical sensibilities...."

Wars of Heaven: Smackdown!
This Trouble Puppet Theater production takes the philosophic battle between good and evil into the pro-wrestling ring
Arts Review  May 5, 2016, by Shanon Weaver
"...As a "student over traditional age," I was more interested in the history of philosophy, but found it fascinating to see the minds of my younger classmates expand as they were challenged with thoughts they'd never dared to have before – though on my end, most of the conventions discussed had already been fully explored years ago among buddies with a black light and a bong. With Trouble Puppet Theater Company's Wars of Heaven: Smackdown!, the challenge of repackaging these ideas for a fresh take is well met, though the production elevates itself a bit past its core message...."
