We hope you don’t see this as an invitation to take your theatre blog dollars elsewhere (so to speak), but these other theatre blogs are just too good to keep to ourselves.
In no particular order, here are the other theatre blogs we’re currently reading:
Scott Walters is an Associate Professor with the University of North Carolina’s Drama Department. Unlike some other theory blogs we’ve come across, Walters’ insightful Theater Ideas finds a nice balance between weighty theoretical discourse and clear and direct language. Frequent posts covering a wide range of theatre-related topics and a lively comments section makes this a worthwhile boomarker.
The Wrecking Ball
The folks at the Toronto-based The Wrecking Ball present a broad range of insightful theatre- and arts-related posts falling from their “new political theatre” mandate: “There is no question that theatre exists in our news — the performances have all been top rate, but the question is: where is the news in our theatre?” Good question.
David Cote is a theatre editor with Time Out New York (TONY) and pens this meaty theatre blog under the banner, “Sound and fury from a New York theater critic.”
Take a gander at this diamond sharp delivery from one of Cote’s recent posts:
“[Richard] Foreman’s and [Wallace] Shawn’s careers have complemented one another for years. Both are masters of blunt but surgically precise language that insinuates itself into your conscience (or unconscious), and, at its best, forcibly realigns your basic relationships to objects and people.”
