American Theatre covers trends and events in all types of theatre, as well as economic and legislative developments affecting the arts. The main focus, however, is on professional, not-for-profit theatre. American Theatre rarely publishes articles about commercial, amateur or university theatre, nor about works that would widely be classified as dance or opera, except at the editors' discretion. While significant productions may be highlighted in the Critic's Notebook section, American Theatre does not review productions (but does review theatre-related books).
Writers wishing to submit articles to American Theatre should mail or e-mail a query to editor in chief Jim O'Quinn outlining a particular proposal; unsolicited material is rarely accepted. Please include a brief résumé and sample clips. Planning of major articles usually occurs at least three months in advance of publication. All manuscripts are subject to editing.
