Three on the Aisle: Keep On Keepin’ On

This week: the steep and rocky road back to normalcy for theatres of all sizes, and the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s lifelong love for the arts.

Once 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, the critics discuss the steep and rocky road back to normalcy that theatres of all sizes are facing. They also reflect on the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and her lifelong love and support of the arts, and answer listener questions about writing plays later in life and audience laughter (specifically the iconic laugh of Mr. Teachout). Picks this week include a recorded 1950s broadcast of The Caine Mutiny featuring actor Lloyd Nolan, Eisa Davis’s Bulrusher, and Richard Nelson’s Incidental Moments of the Day, the latest in the Apple Family series of plays.
