A Multi-Author Culture Blog


Parabasis was founded by Isaac Butler in the Spring of 2003. Over the years, it grew to be one of the top theatre blogs in the nation. Parabasis has been featured in the Guardian Online, Time Out New York and Time Out Chicago and cited in the New York TImes. During this, founder Isaac Butler was routinely asked to sit on panels about New York Theater and the arts in general in the internet age and eventually served on Barack Obama's Arts Policy Committee. Now, Parabasis is entering a new chapter as a group-blog with several regular authors devoted to culture more broadly.
