Tomorrow: On Blogging & Criticism

Tomorrow at CUNY's Segal Center is a panel discussion on blogging and criticism. Unfortunately, I won't be able to attend as I'm up to my eyeballs in rehearsal for REVAMPED, but for those who are free, this looks like an event worth checking out.

The panel, moderated by George Hunka, will feature Aussie blogger Alison Croggon of Theatre Notes telephonically from Melbourne, Australia. Alison's a prize-winning poet and playwright and editor of the Australian literary magazine Masthead.

Andy Horwitz, associate producer at P.S. 122 and editor-in-chief of culturebot.org, will join the panel (in person) to talk about the challenges of running a blog for the downtown theatre community and his (and others') visions of what the blogosphere can do to support and energize the community.

Also in person will be blogger, director and all-around groovy guy Matt Johnston, whose blog seeks to stress "the creation of a dialogue and encourage multiple perspectives in theatre and performance." Matt also writes reviews for NYTheatre.com and was most recently the stage manager for In Public.

The panel is at 6:30 p.m. tomorrow (Wednesday, November 15) at the Graduate Center's Martin E. Segal Theatre, 365 Fifth Avenue at 34th Street. Admission is free.

Doing all his long-distance
calling at CUNY's Segal Center,

It looks quite cool. But alas, it's looking like I'm rehearsing tonight and will be missing it. I'm just hoping this doesn't mean George will beat me (like he does). George, have some compassion.

Congratulations on the Wilder plays, Dorothy!
