Profile

Originally incarnated as Audacity Productions in 1999, this small theater group produced more than 50 plays over a nearly eight-year span. But when Brad McEntire left to spend a year overseas, leaving Audacity without its artistic director, the doors closed in 2006. Upon his return stateside, McEntire reorganized the group, this time with a clearer focus and a tweaked name: Audacity Theatre Lab. The company reintroduced itself to the world in January 2008 with Grading on a Curve, a one-woman show about an artist with tendencies towards cannibalism. Since then, ATL has presented more than a dozen productions, offering a blend of fresh interpretations of classic works and original plays.

Working with the notion that theater should be “an event,” ATL always assembles a cast of unforgettable characters, from an alcoholic magician down on his luck in The Milky Way Cabaret to an obnoxious cell phone addict in I Have Angered a Great God. Audacity has no home theater; instead the group splits its time primarily between Teatro Dallas and the Bath House Cultural Center. The company also makes an annual appearance at Austin’s theater festival, FronteraFest.
