Some lovely straight up raves for HPT's production of The Flick, by Annie Baker:
"It’s easy to understand why The Flick . . . won a Pulitzer. Hyde Park Theater’s new production of the play only goes to further show us its power and depth, reminding us that live theater is just as important and magical as the movie theater." A top pick.
- Austin American Statesman

"Director Ken Webster has done a great job with this work, keeping the focus on these three very different underachievers through deadpan pacing and remarkably open and emotionally raw performances. Delanté G. Keys is superb . . . Shanon Weaver is outstanding . . . Katie Kohler is marvelous. Nothing less than another gem in the crown of Hyde Park Theatre's long roster of important new theatre done with care and style."
- Broadway World

“Expertly acted and directed, The Flick is a subtle and sublime production that will fill you with hope in the most unexpected manner.”
- Austin Entertainment Weekly

"In Hyde Park Theatre's production, smartly staged by Artistic Director Ken Webster with the actors out in the seats and the audience watching from the stage, Avery, Rose, and Sam are certainly distinctive and human. . . . Moments of theatrical power and stirring humanity . . . It's all there, all that makes movies matter to us. But, the play tells us, we don't have to look at a screen to see it. If you'll just turn around, you'll see it all in us. We are the movies, says The Flick. So turn around, and watch. Watch. Watch."
- Austin Chronicle
Winner of the 2014 Pulitzer Prize, The Flick is another exquisite play from Annie Baker, who wrote three of HPT's biggest-ever hits: The Aliens, Circle Mirror Transformation, and Body Awareness. Check out this KUT Arts Eclectic piece about the show.

The New York Times called this wistful, funny, moving story of a friendship between three young movie-theater workers "a work of art so strange and fresh . . . infinitely touching." Featuring Delanté G. Keys, Katie Kohler, and Shanon Weaver. Directed by Ken Webster.
