Every other week, the editors of American Theatre curate a free-ranging discussion about the lively arts.
This week is all about Bad Jews and the people who identify with them. Rob Weinert-Kendt chat with three critics (Peter Marks of the Washington Post, Wendy Rosenfield of the Philadelphia Inquirer and Karen D’Souza of the San Jose Mercury News) about three different regional productions of Joshua Harmon’s frank, funny play about millennials and their relationship to tradition, let alone decorum.
Plus, Rob join Suzy Evans and Diep Tran to discuss artists’ compensation in the theatre. In the thumbs-up file, our editors recommend the touring Basetrack LIVE from En Garde Arts, Rodney King by Roger Guenveur Smith, and the New York Philharmonic 2012 concert staging of Stephen Sondheim’s Company (now available online).
