Special Section: Listening to Sound Design
Our annual design issue will turn up the volume on one of the most under-sung—and commonly misunderstood—branches of the design department. What exactly do sound designers do (and not do)? How do they learn to do it? And how are new innovations in technology changing the way they work? We plan to sound the depths of this topic.

Special Section: How artists make a life, if not a living, in the theatre
Theatre work will never be automated, thankfully. But while the human component of stage work may give theatre its essential life and immediacy, its downsides include physical injuries, outsized living expenses, dashed aspirations, and more.
This issue will explore some of what it takes to make a sustainable life, and even something like a living, in the American theatre in 2019.
