Three on the Aisle: Letters From Lockdown

The critics look back on a year without live, in-person theatre as they go through their mailbag.

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.

On the anniversary of the theatre shutdown, we reached out to our listeners to write to us with their reflections, thoughts, and feelings about the past year. And write to us they did: from Illinois, Iowa, Connecticut, New York, and beyond, telling stories of loss, redirection, and unwavering hope for the future.
