BWW Review: HEISENBERG/LUNGS at American Theatre Company
by Dara Homer - Aug 21, 2018

'Do you find me exhausting but captivating?' This line, from American Theatre Company's production of Heisenberg/Lungs, encapsulates the experience of seeing two striking one-act masterpieces of modern drama back-to-back.

The plays Heisenberg and Lungs, while separated by only a brief intermission in this production, are entirely separate works and even have different casts and directors. However, both are by written by contemporary English playwrights and tell the stories of a man and a woman who explore the nature of their relationships and their own place in the world. (more...)

Industry Editor Exclusive: The Fate of Broadway's Critics
by Cara Joy David - Aug 21, 2018

In the last few decades, theater has become much bigger business than it used to be. However, in that same period of time, the coverage of it in mainstream media outlets has dwindled. Many of us may not remember a time that off-Broadway openings were covered on Entertainment Tonight, but it happened. In recent years, even in America's theater epicenter, theater is losing ground in major publications. Neither The New York Post or The New York Daily News has a critic on staff any longer. It is hard to even tally the amount of veteran theater writers from around the country that have lost their jobs in the last decade. (more...)
