Michael Feingold, Michael Musto Let Go From The Village Voice
The Village Voice has reportedly continued cuts in its staff this week, including longtime columnist Michael Musto and chief theater critic Michael Feingold. The upheaval, which also included food critic Robert Sietsema, last week caused editors Will Bourne and Jessica Lustig to resign.
"So many people have come out to offer their love (and opportunities)," Musto tells Gawker. "My brand will be feistier than ever."
Feingold was the Voice's chief theater critic, a two-time Pulitzer Prize finalist, and a produced playwright and translator. He became OBIE Chairman in 2012 after chairing the OBIE awards from 2006 through 2011.
Musto, who had written for the Voice since 1984, is also the author of Downtown, and Manhattan on the Rocks. A selection of his columns has been published as La Dolce Musto. He is also a regular guest on television shows such as Countdown with Keith Olberman and programs on the E! network. He is published regularly in several gay publications, including Out Magazine and ShowPeople.
