Theatre Journalism


Programming Element

Title & Description

Date & Time

All-Conference Plenary Session

Wesley Morris, culture journalist and critic, New York Times, in conversation with Todd London, Director of Theatre Relations, Dramatists Guild

Thursday, June 6

9-10:15am (75m)


A forthcoming TCG Lab co-faciltated by Brian Herrera and Regina Victor.

This session will feature a facilitated, group discussion and brainstorm on the purpose (and potential) of theatre criticism and journalism in 2019. Can reviews be used for more than just traditional “butts in seats”-oriented press? How can reviewers and journalists become better collaborators with the artists and institutions they write about? How can arts journalism open itself up to a wider community while maintaining a high level of rigor? Who gets to be a critic, and can we make changes to that in a field where jobs are swiftly diminishing?
