In The Press
"Austin's own Alchemy Theatre continues to do its part to take on challenging drama with virtual political significance. While it would certainly be easier to fall back on feel-good performances especially during such trying times, the company persists on producing daring theater which sparks not only joy, but heartfelt conversation."
"An image comes to mind for the musical theatre piece Mack and Mabel...a black pearl, infinitely rare, darkly lustrous, almost never seen."
"Frost Bites, a cabaret-style homage to the Christmas holidays, is better than tonic water with orange juice. Maybe even better than eggnogg."
"[Mack & Mabel] was nearly perfect."
"Michael Cooper’s marvelous direction perfectly captures the language of the original story. Tickets will be gone in a flash. Book your seats for this timeless classic while you can."
"…each moment of (Tracy) Lett’s extraordinary text is lovingly and carefully explored.. …memorable performances from every artist. ...Mesmerizing….I strongly suspect you will be hearing a great deal more about The Alchemy Theatre."
"Babs George’s performance as Gladys (in The Waverly Gallery) anchors both emotional strength and fear. It is a difficult balance to strike, and the actor does so with a power and grace that forms the show’s backbone."
"I highly recommend the Alchemy Theatre’s production of The Waverly Gallery"
"The space was utterly transformed to another place and time, and the audience was rapt from beginning to end. I wouldn’t be surprised to see this production go on to become an Austin Christmas tradition."
