ABOUT

A diverse roundtable of theater critics that review current Broadway and off-Broadway productions. Every episode features three luminary theater critics ready to give you their opinions on some of your favorite shows. The table looks forward to you pulling up a chair and joining them!

Intention – To create room for more diverse theater criticism and thought. To offer jobs to rising theater journalists in the community and offer different perspectives.

This podcast is created in partnership with the BIPOC Critics Lab.

Read more about the BIPOC Critics Lab
The BIPOC Critics Lab developed and led by cultural critic Jose Solís, is an educational space for BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) who haven’t been welcomed into cultural criticism, whether due to systemic oppression, lack of opportunity, or because they didn’t know they were allowed to see themselves as critics. Following the tenets of dialogue, compassion, and nurturing one’s unique voice, future critics who attend will contribute to the creation of a custom program that fits their specific needs and encourages them to pursue the path of criticism that best serves them.

In the BIPOC Critics Lab, lifelines are encouraged over deadlines, and criticism is approached through a multimedia lens, in which podcasting, audiovisual techniques, and social media are as valuable as being skilled in written essays and traditional reviews. Critics conclude their lab experience with their first paid published piece and leave with practical knowledge, tools for decolonization, and a reminder that in order to honor the culture and artforms they’re covering, they must first honor their individual voices.
