May 9, 2003 Arts Feature by Robert Faires

Mrs. Warren's Profession
The State Theater Company's scintillating revival of Mrs. Warren's Profession moves George Bernard Shaw's characters beyond the politics for which they serve as mouthpieces and fills them with the breaths and gestures and expressions of people who live.
"...The production is lovely -- with Buffy Manners' sumptuous period costumes, Tony Tucci's handsome lighting, and..."

March 28, 2003 Arts Review by Robert Faires

The Merry Wives of Windsor
Stuffed to bursting with outrageous characters, broad reactions, and slapstick, The Merry Wives of Windsor as mounted by the Austin Shakespeare Festival and Austin Playhouse is big on big comedy, and the crisp comic work of the cast makes it a sizable pleasure.
"...this guise (realized in gloriously appalling fashion by costumer Buffy Manners), we can immediately see that his ego matches..."

Jan. 24, 2003 Arts Review by Robert Faires

Twelfth Night
The latest production of Twelfth Night from the Austin Shakespeare Festival is full of such strange staging, acting, set, costumes, and sound that viewers end up with less a romantic comedy and more a mass of whirling, flailing confusion.
"...over Shakespeare's text more than a few times.) While Buffy Manners' costumes mixed pre-modern and modern silhouettes to interesting..."

Sept. 20, 2002 Arts Review by Barry Pineo

The Seagull
In the Austin Playhouse production of The Seagull, actors Christa Kimlicko Jones and David Stahl create a splendid tension between their characters and between art and life, but most of the rest of the production rolls by languidly, as just another visit with a crew of Chekhov's discontented Russians.
"...bare trees and accent strips patterned with leaves, and Buffy Manners has costumed the cast in sand, khaki, tan,..."

Jan. 18, 2002 Arts Review by Robert Faires

Alone Again, Unnaturally
The isolation of the lighthouse-bound old couple in Ionesco's The Chairs is supposed to be shattering, but while there are some startling images in the State Theater Company's polished and professional production, the terror of being alone takes a back seat to an effort to play the script's comedy.
"...dressed in baggy, shabby, long-worn clothes provided by designer Buffy Manners, their long gray hair hanging in their faces...."

.com
You know the way Dilbert can sometimes get the whole office / cyber scene down perfectly? That's what Tapestry Dance Company does in their new show .com, and just as cleverly -- but with dance. And with some real depth and beauty worked in there, too. It was like the best of Dilbert, but with Dilbert as drawn by one of the Wyeths.

June 8, 2001 Arts Review by Wayne Alan Brenner

Virtual Devotion
Scott Kanoff launches his tenure as the State Theater Company's new producing artistic director with Eric Coble's Virtual Devotion, and while the performances and design work are laudatory, they're brought to bear on a lackluster script that looks poor in comparison to the least that, say, MAD TV has to offer.
"...by itself, the liquid silver business suit that costumer Buffy Manners has created for Reverend Pete might mesmerize runway..."

Dec. 8, 2000 Arts Review by Wayne Alan Brenner

A Macbeth
In the State Theater Company production A Macbeth, director Guy Chandler Roberts strips the Scottish Play of its dramatic spectacle and boils it down into a compelling ritual of human evil, a Black Mass.
