Offscript: The State of Arts Journalism

This episode was recorded live at #TCG18 in St. Louis, where Midwestern theatre journalists Kerry Reid, Judith Newmark, and Rosalind Early talk about theatre coverage in the age of clicks.

Offscript is a podcast occasionally produced by the editors of American Theatre.

The following conversation was recorded at the Theatre Communications Group annual conference at the Hyatt Regency St. Louis. In it, AT senior editor Diep Tran moderated a conversation with local Midwestern journalists Kerry Reid (Chicago Tribune), Judith Newmark (St. Louis Post-Dispatch), and Rosalind Early (St. Louis Magazine), in front of a live audience. The four women, of different ages and ethnicities, talk about creating content for clicks (and what kind of content gets clicks), why they write about the arts, and what the future looks like when theatre critics are getting let go left and right.
