Today the critics are doing a decade roundup, but not a “top 10” or “best of” list—we figure you’ve seen enough of those already! Instead they talk about some notable trends that have shaped the American theatre in the last 10 years, including the rise of Black playwrights and female directors, and the persistent lack of comedies onstage.
They close out, as always, with a discussion of recent plays. This week that list includes Greater Clements off Broadway, Sing Street at New York Theatre Workshop, and the launch of the national tour of My Fair Lady at the Kennedy Center.
