An unusual convergence of dramas dealing with women and disabilities prompts a conversation among four actors about what playwrights are trying to say through characters who are disabled, and how actors approach playing a disability.

Nov. 2, 2007 Arts Review by Avimaan Syam

Perdita, playwright Monika Bustamante's chilling exploration of what can happen when loss barrels its way through everyday lives, is one of the most tightly crafted and beautifully written works of the year, and its production at Hyde Park Theatre is of sterling quality.
"...Perdita, a new play by Austin playwright Monika Bustamante, is a chilling exploration of what can happen..."

Sept. 12, 2003 Arts Review by Molly Beth Brenner

Julius Caesar
The Austin Shakespeare Festival's timely production of Julius Caesar, deftly directed by Paul Norton, features an effective, almost all-female ensemble whose depiction of the play's bold, rule-breaking politicians and opportunity-grabbing power brokers who send their enemies into disarray summons up parallels to the state of American politics.
"...Stealing the show, and the entire empire, is Monika Bustamante's Marc Antony. Cold and distant at first, yet..."

Seven Deadly Sins
The seven short plays that make up iron belly muses' production Seven Deadly Sins aren't always pleasurable to watch, but several capture that desperation behind sins' commission and ask interesting questions about transgression itself.

Stillborn: a bedtime story
The title of Monika Bustamante's 'Stillborn' is no pun but a promise of what is to come: two hours of anger, rape, murder, and stillbirth that is upsetting, dark, and, unfortunately, not illuminating
"...respite from the wallowing. One starts to wonder if Monika Bustamante, the playwright, isn't better at writing male characters..."

Double D'Amour
In one week, Austin is blessed with two theatrical projects by gifted playwright Lisa D'Amour: her 16 Spells to Charm the Beast, a curious romance between a big-city enchantress and the fairy-tale beast who adores her; and Nita and Zita, a cabaret in which the ghosts of two sisters relate the story of their lives as a vaudeville team and as eccentric "gypsy ladies" in New Orleans in dance numbers, songs, and malapropisms.
"...her hirsute suitor at bay. A fine cast -- Monika Bustamante, Harvey Guion, and Cyndi Williams, with Lana Dieterich..."

16 Spells to Charm the Beast
Playwright Lisa D'Amour's 16 Spells to Charm the Beast is an urban fable of loneliness and love set in a whimsical world where furry brutes pine for sophisticated housewives; at its best Salvage Vanguard Theater's production casts its own spell, capturing us in a thrall of poetic visions reflecting natural desire and supernatural devotion.

The Metamorphosis
Capturing the creepy power and tone of Franz Kafka's novella The Metamorphosis, in which a man awakes one morning to find himself turned into a giant beetle, in a stage production may be as difficult as capturing the rare Megolaponera foetens. Still, the Refraction Arts / Public Domain co-production of The Metamorphosis is a valiant attempt, and possible required viewing for any Kafka aficionado.@META_Category_arts: Review

Raised by Lesbians
In the Subterranean Theatre Company production of Raised by Lesbians, writer Leah Ryan and director Ken Webster transport the audience to the heart of The Who's "Teenage Wasteland," dealing with adolescence, lesbians, and men and women's notions of each other without laughing at teens or distorting them with nostalgia.
