American Theatre‘s podcasts feature timely and timeless conversations and interviews in and about the theatre field.

The Subtext

A podcast where playwrights talk to playwrights about the things usually left unsaid: what irks, agitates, motivates, inspires, and makes writers tick. Brian James Polak hosts. Guests have included David Adjmi, Antoinette Nwandu, Jen Silverman, Will Arbery, Korde Arrington Tuttle, Clare Barron, Chisa Hutchinson, Rebecca Gilman, Isaac Gomez, Ike Holter, and many more.

Theatrical Mustang

This independently produced podcast from actor-writer-activist Woodzick brings listeners interviews with unbridled talent and cultural trailblazers from across the country, including Sara Porkalob, Jill Sobule, jaamil olawale kosoko, John Jarboe, Mykai Eastman, and more.


This occasional podcast features the editors of American Theatre in conversation with each other and with special guests.

Three on the Aisle

A monthly (or sometimes more) podcast from New York about theatre in America, featuring drama critics Peter Marks, Terry Teachout, and Elisabeth Vincentelli. Guests have included Tracy Letts, Conor McPherson, Lila Neugebauer, Samira Wiley, Kate Hamill, Sam Hunter, Soraya Nadia McDonald, Helen Shaw, Diep Tran, Lily Janiak, Tamilla Woodard, and more.

Token Theatre Friends

This podcast from Diep Tran and Jose Solís‏ (discontinued in June 2020; new independent site here) brought a person-of-color perspective to reviews of and interviews with theatre artists in New York City.

Offscript: The Land of Breakout Songs and Butt Wiggles

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.)

Offscript: Anna & Julian in the Jacuzzi

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!
