"Mr. Meyer has worked with me… and made an invaluable contribution through his perceptive analysis of text and performance.  Howard has a strong talent and considerable skill...  His vision of theatre, both as a vehicle of personal truth as well as moral force in the community is one that I completely identify with."

- Athol Fugard, Tony Award winning Playwright on Axial Founder and board President, Howard Meyer
