BWW Reviews: Ambitous New Cabaret Shows From SHANA FARR and JILLIAN LAURAIN Reach High But Fall Short
by Stephen Hanks - Mar 31, 2014

'A man's reach should exceed his grasp. Or what's a heaven for?' once wrote the poet Robert Browning. The line is about setting goals, striving, and ambition, all of which can be commendable desires.

Such was the case with two shows staged this past week by two accomplished singers-Shana Farr and Jillian Laurain--who over the past couple of years have garnered mucho kudos for their vocal prowess and solid shows. Nobody could fault these lovely ladies for pushing their performance envelopes, but in both cases they fell short of their goals. (more...)

BWW Reviews: Quirky DEAD MAN'S CELL PHONE Bolstered by Talented Cast and Imaginative Design
by Jeff Davis - Feb 20, 2014

It's rare for two plays by the same playwright to run simultaneously in Austin. It's exceedingly rare for two plays by the same female playwright to run simultaneously in Austin. That's why it's so surprising that there are two productions of Sarah Ruhl plays in Austin right now. As ZACH Theatre produces her Pulitzer Prize and Tony nominated comedy In the Next Room, UT-Austin's Department of Theatre and Dance presents another Ruhl comedy, Dead Man's Cell Phone. What makes the occurrence all the more interesting is their similarities in subject matter. Both involve technology and its ability to bring people together or isolate them. But that's where the similarities end. In the Next Room takes a more realistic, character driven approach while Dead Man's Cell Phone is more cerebral, artistic, modern, and surreal. (more...)

Additionally, Graff opens up about some of her other most fondly remembered work, including her fantastic turn in Ed Kleban's A CLASS ACT, William Finn's FALSETTOS, Cole Porter's High Society, the stage play and documentary MOON OVER BUFFALO co-starring Carol Burnett, the most recent revival of FIDDLER ON THE ROOF and much more.
