Meet the Reviewers

Natalie Shaw

Natalie Shaw is the Owner, Operator and Editor in Chief for Dallas Theatre Journal. Her first love in Life was Theatre and she is still enamored with it today. She holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree from Oklahoma State University in Theatre, with an emphasis on Performance. As a Reviewer, she is thrilled to support local Theatre artists with the power of words and make so many wonderful productions accessible for audiences! She is captivated by writing and journalism and is passionate about bringing readers motivating, compelling, and informative news columns related to Theatre and those involved.

Eddy Herring

Eddy has been performing consistently in the DFW area for the last 10 years as a stage and commercial actor represented by The Cachet Talent Agency. When not on stage, you will find him directing, set designing, or volunteering somewhere. On or off stage, you will find Eddy doing what he loves most...supporting live theatre. He believes in the importance of encouraging actors as they pursue their passion, and there is nothing more beneficial to an actor than to be validated and be given constructive feedback. Reviews are so important to the process, not only to the actor, but to theatre companies to promote their shows and to encourage audience attendance. Eddy is honored to represent the Dallas Theatre Journal and support live theatre in DFW.

Aubrey Tarantine

Aubrey is a Higher Education Professional by day and a Stage Manger by night, and has been involved with the theatre since high school! She holds both a BA in Advertising and Public Relations and an M.Ed. in Higher Education Leadership, both of which have been very useful in different ways while working with theatres in various different capacities. She is also the co-founder of The Compass Collective which aims to bring healing to our theatre community through retreats and workshops. Aubrey is excited to be a reviewer because she recognizes how important a review can be for not only the audience who wants to come and see our shows, but for those who are working in and for the shows as well!

David Ellivloc

David Ellivloc is a newcomer to Dallas and also works an actor here in the DFW Theatre community. “David Ellivloc” is a penname that is used for writing reviews, while his real name is used for his acting appearances. David loves local Theatre and is thrilled that, as a reviewer, he can help get the word out about the great local productions. He is especially eager to try and bring new folks to the theater. When not doing something in the Theatre world, he lives quietly in Lake Highlands with his wife of 34 years and two cats. He loves Dallas, especially his new Theatre peeps, and is excited to be on stage or in the audience.
