Twice a month, critics Terry Teachout of The Wall Street Journal; Elisabeth Vincentelli, contributor to The New York Times, The Village Voice, and The New Yorker; and Peter Marks of the Washington Post get together for a podcast conversation on major and minor issues brewing in the nation’s theatres.
This week starts with the subject of whether some shows are too hopelessly dated to be brought back...
Next is a (too-brief) overview of their picks for summer events all around the country. Terry chooses American Players Theatre in Wisconsin for its exquisite setting and on-point curating; opts for the new Amanda Peet play Our Very Own Carlin McCullough at the Geffen Playhouse and anything at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival; Elisabeth names the Contemporary American Theater Festival in Shepherdstown, W.V., which she feels is turning into a new Humana, and the venerable but still vibrant Williamstown Theater Festival in Massachusetts.
