Twice a month, critics Terry Teachout of The Wall Street Journal; Elisabeth Vincentelli, contributor to The New York Times and The New Yorker; and Peter Marks of The Washington Post get together to talk about what’s going on in the American theatre.
In this episode, Terry is out but Elisabeth and Peter are not alone: They are joined by Tony-winning director (and sometime actor) David Cromer. They chat with him about working alongside Elaine May in The Waverly Gallery, how he straddles the director-performer divide, and the concepts that informed some of his most famous productions, from Our Town to The Band’s Visit.
