Twice a month, critics Terry Teachout of The Wall Street Journal; Elisabeth Vincentelli, contributor to The New York Times, The Village Voice, and The New Yorker; and Peter Marks of The Washington Post get together to talk about what’s going on in the American theatre.
This episode, the critics take a look back at 2018 and some trends in the theatre scene including the rise of women playwrights, the growing number of plays on Broadway, and a fascination in tackling traditionally problematic shows.
They then give out their awards for best performance, direction, musical, play, and the ever-juicy worst show of the year.
