Every other week, the editors of American Theatre curate a free-ranging discussion about the lively arts.
Our new episode of Offscript ranges widely, from a chat about the orderly succession of power at Steppenwolf Theatre Company, as Martha Lavey passes the baton Anna D. Shapiro, and David Hawkanson to David Schmitz; to an interview with Contemporary American Theatre Festival managing director James McNeel, who was visiting New York for a staging of Thomas Gibbons’s The Uncanny Valley, a drama about an eerily human robot named Julian (currently playing at 59E59 Theaters); to a heated (ahem) discussion of the Debate Society’s new crypto-thriller Jacuzzi. Also recommended and/or cited in this podcast: Our new feature about other podcasts, “Top of the Pods,” and debbie trucker green’s generations.
