Arcadia
Having sat through a Tom Stoppard play, there comes the feeling that a return visit is required to better appreciate all his linguistic, historical, scientific, sexual, comedic, and theatrical flourishes. The Austin Playhouse production of Arcadia, featuring one of the best ensembles to be seen on an Austin stage, may, indeed, warrant repeat visits to fully enjoy its efforts.
"...is adept at Stoppard's light-speed dialogue. David Stahl and Andrea Osborn, as the competitive Hannah and Bernard, manage to..."

Richard III / The Rivals

Play On!
In the backstage comedy Anton in Show Business, playwright Jane Martin wittily paints the contemporary stage as a madhouse overrun by loons and lunatics so preoccupied with money, image, and themselves that they can hardly be bothered to create art. And the State Theater Company's production takes us inside the insanity with an air of playfulness that keeps the audience primed for a good time.
