Three on the Aisle: Top 10 Trends?

Looking at the theatre’s most-produced lists for clues to changing (or lasting) tastes, and a dip into the readers’ mailbag.

Twice a month, 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.

This week, Peter is out, but Elisabeth and Terry are joined by Adam Feldman of Time Out New York to discuss American Theatre‘s annual list of the most-produced plays in the country. Terry and Elizabeth also go through the mailbag and answer questions from listeners, and talk about recent shows they’ve seen, some good and some… not so good.
