AMERICAN THEATRE Features Calendar

At AMERICAN 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.

 

COMING IN JANUARY 2019: AMERICAN THEATRE’s ANNUAL THEATRE TRAINING ISSUE

ARTS ADMINISTRATION IN THE 21ST CENTURY

At a time when the U.S. theatre field is experiencing historic turnover, particularly in high-profile artistic roles, the work of arts administrators, toiling tirelessly behind the scenes to build, rebuild, and sustain arts organizations in uncertain economic times, is more crucial than ever.

 

This special training issue will speak to those who are teaching and mentoring the next generation of theatre managers for a changing field, profile a cohort of young students finding their way into this work, and shine a light on administrators who, though they are not at the top of their organizations, nevertheless execute key leadership roles in today’s theatre.

       · Bella Spewack’s overlooked contributions to Kiss Me, Kate

       · The London-to-Broadway pipeline
