Offscript: Awake & Online

“It’s the bitch of living.” Except not really. In this episode of Offscript, we talk to arts reporter Linda Buchwald about “Spring Awakening” at Deaf West Theatre, which uses deaf actors and sign language to add a new dimension to the Duncan Sheik/Steven Sater musical about teenage desires in 19th-century Germany. Plus our editors argue over gender parity and the politics of representation.

Offscript: Festival-palooza!

Episode 8 of Offscript features journalist and critic Helen Shaw, who discusses the surfeit of experimental theatre festivals that have popped up in New York City in January. Senior editor Eliza Bent talks to Shaw about what to see when you have five festivals to choose from, how to combat theatre-going fatigue, and the value of playing hooky and dressing warmly.
