At American Theatre, we’ve long published a few regular special issues: our annual season preview in October, our international issue each May/June, our theatre training issue in January. But in recent years we’ve tried to give every issue a theme—not as a promise to definitively cover the last word on every topic, but as a way to focus our attention and go deep on a particular area, trend, or theme that strikes as worthy of more exploration. Some recent examples include a special issue on Latinx theatre in the U.S., one on compensation, another on the uses of magic, illusion, and technology in design.
Here are some upcoming issues we’re planning. If you’d like to advertise, please reach Carol Van Keuren at firstname.lastname@example.org; if you’d like to pitch a story along these lines, you can reach out to email@example.com or contact an editor (emails here). Note: These themes are subject to change; check back regularly for updates.
