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.
