Holy Well, Sacred Flame
Irish mythology is littered with conflicts more dramatic than the material for Holy Well, Sacred Flame. Still, writer-director Bonnie Cullum makes a unique rite from sincerity, sensuousness, and outlandish vision.
Arts Review  January 17, 2003, by Rob Curran
"...To start this tribute to Brigid, Catholic saint and spring goddess, nine Vortex Repertory Company members circle a reconstruction of the Kildare well and chant incantations to the gas flame that tops it. Chief druid Bonnie Cullum simulates the pleasures of a Celtic feis (a feast, like a fiesta without the sunshine) and stimulates all the audience's senses..."

The Music of Erica Zann
Vortex Repertory Company's The Music of Erica Zann brings H.P. Lovecraft's "The Music of Erich Zann" to the stage as a chamber opera, and the result is a fever dream, a hallucinatory state in which you're overwhelmed by strange visions and a palpable sense of anxiety and apprehension.

Another Ballet Switch

"...It seems Austin's arts institutions rarely undergo big personnel changes in isolation. If one company suffers a big change, wait a few minutes and you're likely to see another big change at another company..."

Tokyo Miracle
Arts Column  March 7, 1997
"...It also confirms the success of his first directorial stint in Tokyo, staging The Glass Menagerie three years ago; it was on the basis of that production that Bloom was invited to direct The Miracle Worker. The production opens March 28, which gives Bloom lots of time to refine his skills at directing through an interpreter and saying "Otsukare sama deshita," the ritual closing to every rehearsal, which means "A good day's work." (Think we can get directors here to take up that practice?) Worthy Causes VORTEX Repertory Company and the HIV Wellness Center are presenting a five-night run of concerts by the a cappella group The Flirtations..."

Top Ten That's Really 13 (and Could Easily Have Been 20) Theatre Experiences of 1996
Arts Story  January 10, 1997, by Robert Faires
"...Susan Fenichell's updated Bacchae reset that savage tale in a modern hearing room, where the ghosts of Ruby Ridge and Oklahoma City swirled, binding us to ancient horror through our own experience. Gospel transformed Oedipus' drama into a Bible story, rich with spiritual turmoil and eventual redemption. Staged by Dave Steakley and performed by a company that sang with a rare and glorious passion, it lifted us within reach of heaven..."

A Tree for T.J.
Arts Column  October 25, 1996
"...The friends and colleagues of Austin theatre artist T.J. Gaudette will plant a tree in his memory on the grounds of Planet Theatre next Thursday, October 31.

Nonunion Actors: Raising It a Notch
Arts Story  June 9, 2000, by Robi Polgar
"...For some, such as Joe York or Ken Webster, this allows them to earn some real money working for the big companies such as Zachary Scott Theatre Center or the State Theater while retaining their rights to do projects with smaller companies that could never meet a union payroll. Webster, for example, acts regularly at the State and is also artistic director of Subterranean Theatre Company, directing and acting in all manner of plays -- many that the bigger companies would be unlikely to tackle because of the risk involved..."

"...The Cry Pitch Carrolls (Salvage Vanguard Theater) Nothing less than a small miracle.

Lasting Commitments
The 2008 class of the Austin Arts Hall of Fame
Arts Story  May 23, 2008, by Robert Faires
"...For many a fledgling theatre company, the difference between survival and oblivion is a Don Howell – that is, someone possessed of experience, expertise, and an interest in young artists, and who is willing to aid a group just starting out with encouragement, advice, and resources that will help to keep it alive. Since 1992, when he came to Austin, Howell has made a critical difference in the survival of a number of indispensable theatre companies – Vortex Repertory Company, Frontera Productions (now Hyde Park Theatre), Physical Plant Theater, the Public Domain – as well as a few, such as Troupe Texas and Deus Ex Machina, that disappeared all too quickly..."
