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 talk about creating a government post for arts and culture and who might fill such a position. They also touch on what the Biden Administration might mean for the theatre. Terry shares his thoughts on comedy without live laughter, and Elisabeth and Peter discuss some interactive game-style shows on Zoom and the video platform Shindig. Their picks this week include Ready Made Cabaret 2.0 by This Is Not A Theatre Company, the Geffen Playhouse’s Inside the Box, and the Irish Rep’s A Touch of the Poet.
