It’s that wee, spunky theatre company tucked into an odd corner of the Bath House Cultural Center and managed by a tight-knit congenial group of professional artists with at least 200 years’ worth of genuine theatrical knowledge and experience between them.  Solidly directed from a natural-feeling thrust perspective by One Thirty Productions Producer. …It’s a spic and span gem of a play, sure to elicit spontaneous chuckles and guffaws…
Critical Rant and Rave, Alexandra Bonifield
 
There’s nothing sweet about his knockabout comedy. It’s a rowdy good time…..

Director Marty Van Kleeck and her cast have blown the dust off The Housekeeper and made it two hours of good clean fun.

The trio of actors gave it a warm, nicely understated reading, with characterizations that were as rich as they could be, considering it was a reading and they were tethered to their scripts.

One Thirty Productions is a paradox-and a very successful one. This all matinee series seeks out light and conservative shows that will appeal to the retirees who constitute most of its audience, but is has been most enterprising in developing new work to meet these criteria.
The Dallas Morning News , Lawson Taitte
 
Even without the nostalgia factor, The Mystery of Miz Arnette is a sweet, original comedy.
Dallas Observer, Elaine Liner
 
It’s currently treated to a first rate premier staging by One Thirty Productions. If future productions are as rewarding as this one…Miz Arnette should repeat the success of Wedding Belles, the first Bailey/Edwards collaboration.

It's beautifully played in the staging by One Thirty Productions, directed by Terry Dobson, and looks swell on Marty Van Kleeck and Theresa Furphy's detailed and appropriately busy set It's Bryant, though, who gives the kind of performance that, in the film world, often garners attention at awards time…
Mark Lowry, TheaterJones.com
 
...the play is raucously funny one minute (mostly thanks to Bryant, a topnotch comic) and thoughtful the next. The actors play it absolutely straight, bringing a nice level of dignity to what could be a broadly acted situation comedy.

 One Thirty staple Larry Randolph gives what is sure to be one of (if not the) performance of the year as Leslie Bright…This show is all-around beautiful from Mary Van Kleeck’s costumes to the thoughtful direction of Morgana Shaw…He’s  talented, but his portrayal of Leslie Bright …  is jaw-dropping….It’s devastatingly powerful, one of those moments that reminds us why we love the theater.
Theater Jones, Mark Lowry
 
…director Morgana Shaw has stage the Wilson piece with panache. This is one show of the Festival that looks truly designed, too, thanks largely to M. Graeme Bice’s lighting.
       
The Dallas Morning News, Lawson Taitte
 
And Randolph’s resourseful, exquisitely wrought performance, full of tarnished dignity, sells it. This is a show-a performance –not to missed.
The Dallas Voice, Arnold Wayne Jones
