Offscript: Jim O’Quinn’s American Theatre History Lesson

It’s the all in-house edition of Offscript! The editors talk to our outgoing founder/editor-in-chief Jim O’Quinn about 30-plus years of ‘American Theatre,’ and the field then and now.

Every other week, the editors of American Theatre curate a free-ranging discussion about the lively arts in our Offscript podcast.

It’s the all in-house edition of Offscript! New editor-in-chief Rob Weinert-Kendt, with editors Suzy Evans and Diep Tran, talk to AT‘s outgoing editor-in-chief/founder Jim O’Quinn. Jim has been covering the national theatre scene for a long time (for more than 30 years!) and he’s seen some things. We talk to him about how the field has changed in 30 years, his favorite AT stories, and how he got the job.
