Rocketing Through Hard Times
Yellow Tape and other small theatre groups blast past the black hole of the recession
Arts Story  February 20, 2009, by Elizabeth Cobbe
"..."It's gonna be totally awesome!" says Morgan of Yellow Tape Construction Company's upcoming show, Warpstar Sexysquad. He could also be talking about any of their past eight shows, the weather, his glued-to-the-hand iPhone, or pretty much anything..."

'The Ultimate Christmas Musical: The Musical!' Saving the season with every Christmas story you've ever heard
The Yellow Tape gang works its high-energy, kitschy, crowd-pleasing magic on the holidays
Arts Story  December 7, 2007, by Barry Pineo
"...Consulting a trademark attorney before conjuring the name of a production company most likely does not constitute standard artistic practice. However, it wouldn't surprise me if the folks at Yellow Tape Construction Co..."

Warpstar Sexysquad
Yellow Tape's over-the-top, rockin' homage to sci-fi is damn entertaining and funny
Arts Review  March 6, 2009, by Avimaan Syam
"...Just another night of theatre, right? Yellow Tape Construction Company bills Warpstar Sexysquad as "a sci-fi action-adventure musical comedy," and indeed I would bring up Spaceballs, Star Wars, Star Trek, and a host of other movies and pop-culture references before I'd link Warpstar to another play (save Yellow Tape's own Christmas musical last year)...."

Come Home
Yellow Tape Construction Company's self-styled indie folk musical 'Come Home' plays out like a quaint indie film with Midwestern melancholia and harmony
Arts Review  October 7, 2005, by Patti Hadad
"...Yellow Tape Construction Company heads out on the highway but stays at home with their production Come Home, a self-styled "indie folk musical." Yellow Tape artistic directors Jonathon Morgan and Amanda Butterfield are new to Austin but have that do-it-yourself attitude that endures in local theatre. They crashed at the Redhouse Art Space – Chris Humphrey and Ben Johnston's living room, to be exact – which has wood floors and dark bookcases nesting in country home nostalgia...."

'I Am Not Tartuffe': American rock & roll vs. French art film
Yellow Tape Construction Company's I Am Not Tartuffe reimagines Molière's satire as a tale of scheming French people plotting to take over America's future
Arts Story  March 16, 2007, by Elizabeth Cobbe
"...If you've ever wanted to speak to God in real time, now is your chance. On March 15, Yellow Tape Construction Company premieres I Am Not Tartuffe, a play in which God is available via instant messaging..."

A Thumping Raging Explosion of Light and Marvelous Texture
Yellow Tape's latest doesn't thump or rage but whispers something wonderful to you
Arts Review  October 10, 2008, by Elizabeth Cobbe
"...Yellow Tape Construction Company's new dance production begins maybe not the way you'd expect from a show titled A Thumping Raging Explosion of Light and Marvelous Texture. Six women are seen balancing precariously on six small tree stumps as members of the band Masonic strike up some friendly chords in a major key..."

I Love My Dead Gay Son: The Musical!
With 'I Love My Dead Gay Son: The Musical!', the energy-to-burn Yellow Tape Construction Company turn this cult film 'Heathers' into a loud, amped-up send-up of everything Eighties
Arts Review  June 30, 2006, by Robert Faires
"...Suicide as the "in" thing to do. More expired adolescents than Izod has little green gators … The Eighties are back – with a vengeance! More specifically, Heathers, Michael Lehmann's 1989 cult film about a high school under the iron rule of three privileged princesses who share the same name, is back, adapted into a stage musical by the energy-to-burn Yellow Tape Construction Company...."

Culture Flash!
Hunting PLC wants to give a Texas artist $50K, puppet people want you, a Beegle play is Louisville-bound, 'Cantanker' publishes again, and KDHDC and Yellow Tape partying for your cash
Arts Column  November 10, 2006, by Robert Faires
"...• Hunting PLC wants to give a Texas artist $50,000. The international oil services company, which awards that amount annually via the Hunting Prize, recently shifted the prize from the United Kingdom, where it was a major art prize for 25 years, to Houston, home to its North American headquarters..."

We Are Normal, Cha Cha Chaaa
The dance 'We Are Normal, Cha Cha Chaaa' is such a whirl of motion, bursting with youthful exhilaration, that it suggests nothing so much as five girls hard at play on a long summer's day
Arts Review  October 13, 2006, by Robert Faires
"...Cyndi Lauper's observation of old still holds true, or so it appears in the latest production from Yellow Tape Construction Company. For three-quarters of an hour, the five women who constitute the cast of from We Are Normal, Cha Cha Chaaa run, jump, skip, caper, chase one another in and out of doors, fall into one another's arms, roll on the floor, throw themselves against walls, and play with feathers (lots of feathers) for what looks to be the sheer pleasure of it..."

FronteraFest Short Fringe: Best of Week One
Improv, Butoh, cabaret, and one of those commanding performance moments that make FronteraFest made up the Short Fringe 2006 Best of Week One
Arts Review  January 20, 2006, by Patti Hadad
"...The four lackeys in Yellow Tape Construction Company's "I.Don't.Care: A Poignant Investigation of the Customer Service Industry, You Jackass" sported white plastic raincoats and caused hilarious randomonium as they gave speedy and efficient runarounds pointing and yelling, "You know nothing." Gap attendants fought aggressively to assist while Breanna Stogner gave a comical testimonial, à la Pretty Woman, about going into ultra-chic boutiques to buy undersized, overpriced designer wear. Though it may have felt like the day after Christmas with nasty zingers to patrons that would have made Howard Stern blush, the ensemble reminded us that bad service happens to good people...."

Classics Comeback
Are the great dramas of yore reclaiming their place on Austin's stages?
Arts Story  July 3, 2009, by Robert Faires
"...But once three homegrown plays, in fairly quick succession, found notable success inside and outside Austin, a real surge in new play production began. The trifecta of Gertrude Stein Gertrude Stein Gertrude Stein, by Marty Martin; Greater Tuna, by Joe Sears, Jaston Williams, and Ed Howard; and In the West, by the company members of Big State Productions, proved that there was an audience for Austin-generated plays, both locally and nationally, and anyone who wasn't already an aspiring screenwriter sat down to the keyboard and began tap-tap-tapping out a script for the stage..."

Are You Experienced?
Why art that actively engages audiences is quintessentially Austin
Arts Story  October 9, 2009, by Robert Faires
"...These works asked us to be active, to step out of the temples of art and see it out in our world or take part in its creation ourselves. And they followed a host of like works from last season, projects that let us walk through buildings and spy dramas staged in different rooms (Vestige Group's Muses III: Memories of a House, Secondhand Theatre's Rooms, Displaced Theatre's Red Light Winter), to troop to a street corner to watch a scene play out (Hyde Park Theatre's Bombs in Your Mouth) or through Downtown to discover dancers wedged into the cityscape (Bodies in Urban Spaces), to imbibe during a show's built-in drinking game (Yellow Tape Construction Company's Warpstar Sexysquad), to type a love note and have it hand-delivered to a special someone anywhere in the city (Jaclyn Pryor's pink), to attach New Year's wishes to a 34-foot wooden clock and then see it burn to the ground (Community Art Makers' Resolution Clock at First Night Austin), and, in the grandest extreme of this kind of work to date, to choose from a list of handcrafted experiences and have one created personally and individually for you (Rubber Rep's The Casket of Passing Fancy)...."
