I don't regularly comment on your blog, (depsite the fact that I was a contributor back before anybody read it), but I want to say that this is a fantastic idea. I'm not sure if you'll be able to get Brantley or Isherwood to respond to this type of interview, but it's an excellent progression from lot of the blogosphere discussion of the role of critics. Right on.

And David, thanks for doing it.


I take back every bad thing I ever said about David Cote:

"I know, the goal for Off-Off Broadway shows is not necessarily to transfer to Broadway or even Off, but I feel like the city’s big artistic directors would learn so much if they stepped out of their administrative bubbles and got out to see the best Off-Off has to offer. Otherwise, they’re gutless, out-of-touch bureaucrats who care more about coddling subscribers and attracting corporate funding than fostering great theater. Okay, let them keep doing that, but hire a goddamn real artistic director with balls. Great big shiny brass ones. Three of them."


Oliver Butler

Damn that's a good read! Get Ol' Ish to do one of these.

Where do I get me 3 brass balls?


As someone who hasn't added a real entry to her blog for at least three months, I know I have no right to ask this, and I only break down and beg now because I absolutely LOVED the first part of this interview, but ... PART II, PLEASE!
