Heading into the holidays, a few of our regular favorite podcasts have taken a break (or, like our own OffScript podcast, only come out biweekly). So apologies in advance for a very New York-centric, though hardly NY-exclusive, series of chats.
It was a year in which gender parity in the theatre—or rather, the lack thereof—was a hot topic. So it’s only fitting that Bernardo Cubria’s New York-based podcast Off and On should round out the year with a chat with playwrights Gina Scanlon and Karen Rousso, whose 365 Women A Year is a daily calendar of awesome women throughout history. Scanlon and Rousso address such important questions as whether or not you can tell if a play is written by a woman, and who should be allowed to play what roles.
Maxamoo In this epic look back at the best (and worst) of New York City theatregoing, all of this podcast’s regular (and less regular) contributors are on hand for a lively, occasionally wistful grand tour of 2014. (And this is only Part 1!)
And in our newest OffScript, we American Theatre editors chat about holiday shows we’ve loved (spoiler: not many!), and more importantly, check in with 10-year-old theatre critic and performer Ada Grey, who’s been on this beat longer than some of us.
