The steady decrease in professional journalists covering theatre and reviewing Broadway and Off-Broadway productions has been made evident once again, as the New York Post's first-string theatre critic, Elisabeth Vincentelli, has apparently been let go.

Colleague Jeremy Gerard, who was let go from his position as arts reporter and critic at Deadline earlier this week, posted the news on his Twitter page.

On Vincentelli's Twitter page, she now descibes herself as "Ex-New York Post."

A former Arts & Entertainment Editor, at Time Out New York, Vincentelli replaced the late Clive Barnes as the Post's chief drama critic in 2009.

Known for a dry wit that frequently references both pop and high culture, the French-born Vincentelli has been a frequent guest on PBS's "Theatre Talk," hosted by Susan Haskins and the New York Post's Michael Riedel. Visit

Jeremy Gerard joined Deadline in 2014, after serving as Senior Cultural News Editor at Bloomberg News. His over forty years in the industry includes stints as Broadway reporter for the New York Times, Chief Drama Critic at Variety and Features Editor and Columnist for New York magazine. He is the author of "Wynn Place Show: A Biased History of the Rollicking Life & Extreme Times of Wynn Handman and The American Place Theatre."
