HIGH SCHOOL DRAMA: Brentwood High's Cameron Bortz
by Jeffrey Ellis - Feb 5, 2015

What is it about theater kids that make them special? What's that indefinable quality that sets them apart from other teenagers? To my way of thinking, theater kids have more poise than the average high school student, an ability to talk to anyone they meet with confidence and razor-sharp focus. At least, that description certainly applies to this week's star of High School Drama, 2015 First Night Most Promising Actor Cameron Bortz of Brentwood High School. (more...)

BWW Review: THE BOYS NEXT DOOR Delights Austin
by Amy Bradley - Feb 1, 2016

Given the politically correct societal norms of the current day, it is refreshing to see Tom Griffin's The Boys Next Door come to life. Making their directorial debut during The City Theatre's 10th anniversary season, co-directors Lacey Cannon Gonzales and husband Carl Gonzales capture the highs and lows experienced by a collection of lively characters with intellectual disabilities. The love between this group of misfits is unseen by most audiences. With the honesty presented regarding the character's disabilities, one could potentially feel uncomfortable. No such feeling is present during this rendition. The care and love the company took in presenting this piece in a raw and honest way was highly impressive. By allowing us to peek into the lives of Arnold (Heath Thompson), Norman (R. Michael Clinkscales), Lucien (McArthur Moore) and Barry (Tony Salinas), the characters impediments bring a roller coaster of heart-warming laughter and heart-breaking sighs, letting you laugh without guilt, and cry without pity.

BWW Interview: Deborah Nowinski, Founding Artistic Director of Dionysus Theatre, Talks 'Inclusion Theatre'
by Katricia Lang - Apr 11, 2016

HAMILTON proves that ethnically and culturally diverse casts can produce smash hits. However, before the performing arts community can pat herself on the back for being so accepting, she should turn her head to the right. All too often, inclusive theater excludes theater artists with disabilities. Dionysus Theatre founding artistic director Deborah Nowinski has spent decades pushing back against the mixture of prejudice and apathy that makes this so. Below, Nowinksi talks with BroadwayWorld about a most recent effort-her guidebook for educators and instructors seeking to create ability diverse casts- 'Your Role in Inclusion Theatre' and much, much more.
