“a timely and potent piece of theatrical magic”
– Austin American-Statesman

“DAMN, can these three actors tell a story”
– Austin Chronicle

“The Brothers Size receives our highest recommendation for thoughtful people over the age of twelve. The play is part of a heartfelt conversation about race, not just in America, but in the entire world.  The Austin theatre community should seek it out, as the play and the trilogy of which it is a part bode fair to become landmarks in 21st century American theatre.“
– Central Texas Live Theatre

“John Christopher’s Ogun is the soul of the production; his performance so full …

Critics Rave About HIR

“HIR upends conventions of gender and family with dark hilarity”
– Austin Chronicle

“Theatre aficionados should flock to this play by the red-hot Taylor Mac.  They will be well rewarded by their attendance.”
– Central Texas Live Theatre

“Roxy Becker, as Paige, is a study in madness, appearing at first as merely capricious, she steadily degenerates to the stunning violent conclusion. Jay Byrd, as Arnold, delivers a heart- breakingly sad and touching performance. Nate Jackson is wonderful as Isaac, as he valiantly tries to regain what has been irretrievably lost. Dillon Yruegas, as Max, is both funny …

Critics Sing Praise for SONG ABOUT HIMSELF

“This Show Sings!”
– Austin Chronicle

“The three performances are top-notch…you are in for some exceptional theatre.”
– Austin Broadwayworld

“Katherine Catmull, as Carol, captures the character’s sense of existential crisis, and her extreme desire to connect with another human being provides the driving force that motivates the entire play. Jason Phelps is her perfect counterpoint as the charming, often funny, and increasingly disturbing Host/Hostess, while Ken Webster’s Tod is awash in confusion, anxiety, and quiet strength.“
– Austin American-Statesman

“With his words and Maher’s in the care of the three actors and director who made Maher’s There Is a Happiness …
