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.

    Special Section: TIME’S UP FOR THEATRE

      It hasn’t even been a year since the reports of film mogul Harvey Weinstein’s long career of sexual harassment and       assault broke in the national media, thus starting a long overdue examination of toxic misogyny and gender imbalance       not only in culture and media industries but in most professions. The U.S. theatre has had its share of #MeToo       earthquakes as well, with artistic leaders losing jobs as survivors come forward and force companies, and the field, to       reckon with the need for change.

      This issue will tackle these countervailing trends—both the structures of abuse and the efforts to insist that the field       must do better.
