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.
And even while AT is on pause from print issues, we are still planning theme issues to run online. If you’d like to advertise, please reach Carol Van Keuren at email@example.com; if you’d like to pitch a story along these lines, you can reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org or contact an editor (emails here). Note: These themes are subject to change; check back regularly for updates.
