AMERICAN THEATRE Features Calendar
THEATRE, we've long
published a few regular issues:
• October's Annual Season Preview
• January Approaches to Theatre Training
• May/June International Issue
• July/August: Design & Technology
Now, we're working on giving every issue a theme - not as a
promise to definitively cover the last word on every topic, but as a way to
focus our attention and go deep on a particular area, trend, or theme that
strikes as worthy of more exploration. Some recent examples include Latinx
theatre in the U.S., Native American theatre, Angels
in America, Fundraising &
Development, to name a few.
Stories are subject to change.
MARCH 2019: THE
STATE OF BLACK THEATRE IN THE U.S.
It’s not just cinema that is having a much-ballyhooed Black moment. Theatres across the U.S. are staging a wider array than ever of plays reflecting varied experiences of the African American diaspora (and not only in February). But, are Black-run institutions faring as well as some individual artists, and getting the credit and funding they deserve for building audiences and careers? This issue will look at the state of Black arts onstage from creative, business, and justice angles.
Also, in this issue:
What the current turnover trend in American theatres’ artistic leadership means and promises
Q & A with Kenny Leon
The nation’s notoriously white improv scene takes steps to diversify
Tatiana Maslany on media, feminism, and Network
Report on the 2018 Black Theatre Summit

APRIL 2019: BROADWAY AND BEYOND
Each spring theatre observers and the national press whip themselves into a Tony-focused frenzy over the plays and musicals on offer at a handful of theatres in one tourist district of Manhattan. But is Broadway still the place where the fortunes of U.S. theatre-makers are made, and new repertoire minted?
This issue will take stock of trends in both straight plays and musicals that stretch beyond the Great White Way, and profile a true stage creature (and star), Laurie Metcalf.
