COYOTE, Nouveau 47 | Dallas

“… a ferocious writer for the ‘recession generation’ who hurls metaphor, alliteration and theatrical convention into a universe inhabited by the likes of Sam Shepard, John Milton and James Joyce with defiant abandon.”

IRIS, Red Eye | Minneapolis

“Best Playwriting, 2010 Year in Review”
Lavender Magazine

“IRIS is based upon the Greek legend of Iphigenia, a tale told in the plays of Aeschylus and Euripides. Kautzman gives it a modern makeover, and it gets the Red Eye treatment in an intriguing and well-executed staging, with the dean of Twin Cities experimental theater companies mixing in plenty of movement and music.”

Pioneer Press

MODERATION, Spooky Action Zoom Presentation | DC

“Seeing this play refined and fully-staged would be intriguing. It revels in ambiguity – including the ending – while the journey is lots of dark, comedic fun.”

MD Theatre Guide


“It’s a great mix of genuine and ridiculous… Money $hot: Loose Change is something fresh and exciting. I’m not exaggerating when I say I’ve never seen anything quite like this before. If you’re in the mood for something new or you’re a big fan of comedy, check out this new original series.”
