Another lively, intimate week of theatre talk.
This week’s guest is TCG board president Diane Rodriguez, who discusses the recent TCG board meetings, the Latino theatre movement and the L.A. 99-seat plan. Plus, the editors preview our December issues, out this week.
From the TBA Awards to Chicago’s literary slam WRITE Club, this week’s theatre podcasts hit close to home.
This week on the (virtual) air, the focus was on L.A. and New York.
It’s the all-Public-Theater edition of Offscript! Senior editor Eliza Bent joins us to discuss Young Jean Lee’s newest show “Straight White Men” at the Public Theater. Then Suzy, Rob and Eliza sound off on “Fortress of Solitude,” also at the Public, and why some musical conventions work sometimes but not others. (We promise next edition of Offscript will be a little less NY-centric.)
Brass tacks and emotional outbursts highlight this week on the nation’s theatre podcasts.
Gender parity, theatre awards, the mystery of QR codes and our robot future are some of the themes hit by this week’s top podcasts.
This episode of OffScript features an interview with James McNeel, managing director of Contemporary American Theatre Festival in West Virginia. He was in town/New York City for the Off-Broadway premiere of CATF’s “Uncanny Valley,” by Thomas Gibbons. Assistant editor Diep Tran talks with him about new plays and robots.
Also, the editors of AMERICAN THEATRE discuss succession of Steppenwolf Theatre in Chicago, and Suzy and Diep get into a heated debate over a “Jacuzzi.” Come on in, the water’s warm!
Theatre podcasts worth listening to this week.
