Austin Entertainment Weekly: “SUFFER THE LONG NIGHT or Die From Laughing”

December 15, 2014 by Laura Jordan

“Have you had your flu shot this season?  Apparently, no cast member in Suffer the Long Night has had theirs.  That’s exactly why 6 of the 13 cast members are absent from the production.  What do you do when the majority of your cast is out with the flu?  The show must go on, of course.”

BroadwayWorld-Austin: “SUFFER THE LONG NIGHT is a Riotously Funny Evening of Farce and Laughter”

December 15, 2014 by Frank Benge

Suffer the Long Night belongs to that class of backstage comedies like Noises Off and Fashion: The Musical where the audience sees an actor playing an actor who is playing a character in a show.  Suffer the Long Night first debuted in 2008 in Los Angeles and this production marks the first time it has been seen in Texas.”

Williamson County Sun: “SUFFER THE LONG NIGHT Turns Into Intentionally Insufferable Trip”

December 14, 2014 by Peter Dossing

“It didn’t take much to add a little chaos to the opening night performance of the suspense thriller, Suffer the Long Night.  We’re talking about forgotten lines, falling stage lights (ouch), out-of-sync sound cues like early phone rings and late gunshots, plus actors bumping into one another (oops).  Real chaos! […] Now that you think I panned the play, let me set this review straight.  I liked the play.  It is really a ‘play within a play.’”

BroadwayWorld-Austin: “More Lessons Taught Than Dancing in SIX DANCE LESSONS IN SIX WEEKS”

June 24, 2014 by
Joan Baker is delightful in the role of Lily Harrison, giving a touching and nuanced performance. Her character has some of the best lines in the script and her delivery on ‘When you say your real age out loud your face hears you’ was a highlight of the evening. Olin Meadows does a good job with the difficult task of making a basically unlikeable character seem more human.”

Williamson County Sun: “A Dance to Remember”

June 11, 2014 by Michael Freeman
“Amanda Jones has found working on a professional theater production quite different than working on one in school.  ‘It’s been a very good experience,’ the 16-year-old East View High School junior said.  ‘I’m learning a lot.’  Ms. Jones is the stage manager for Six Dance Lessons in Six Weeks, an upcoming production by the Agape Actors Co-Op.”

“Of course, it’s easy to buy into Foote’s world when a strong cast and director are guiding the way. Olin Meadows’s direction fits Foote’s style perfectly. His approach to the material is discreet, unfussy, and clearly focused on the journey of the central character.”
“Having an actress like Joan Baker as the focal point certainly bolsters the production. As Carrie Watts, Baker gives an understated, delicate performance. Every beat and moment is carefully calculated but comes off as wonderfully authentic. She’s more than capable of pulling of the duplicitous nature of the character.”
