A new episode of Three on the Aisle, the podcast in which Peter Marks, Elisabeth Vincentelli, and I talk about theater in America, is now available on line for listening or downloading.
Here’s American Theatre’s “official” summary of the proceedings:
This month the critics talk to Soraya Nadia McDonald, culture critic for The Undefeated. Soraya is the 2020 winner of the George Jean Nathan prize for dramatic criticism, a 2020 finalist for the Pulitzer Prize in criticism, and the runner-up for the 2019 Vernon Jarrett Medal for outstanding reporting on Black life. The critics talk about the evolving role of their work in a time of pandemic, about the multi-layered issue of theatrical and critical gatekeeping, and about the ongoing question, “What is theatre?” Critics’ picks this month include Blood Meal on Youtube from Theatre in Quarantine, Mike Nichols: A Life, a biography by Mark Harris, and Simply Sondheim from Signature Theatre.
