The American Theatre Critics Association’s Conference & Event committee invites you to this open discussion about best practices for reviewing online theater. March 23, 2021 starting at 8:30 pm ET / 5:30 pm PT
When reviewing theater online, what main principles do you keep in mind? What should a critic consider when evaluating design elements like lighting, costumes and sound? Given distractions at home, how do you improve focus? What are the positives of online productions, and how might they continue post-pandemic?
Leading us off will be Alexis Soloski from The New York Times, Sheri Flanders from Chicago Reader, Bill Hirschman from Florida Theater Onstage and David John Chávez from Bay Area Plays and The Mercury News. Participation is encouraged. Come with questions and stories to share!
This is the first in a series of ATCA events designed to be both for critics and by critics. Featuring ATCA members as panelists and moderators, these events will be free, informal and geared toward working arts writers. Stay tuned for upcoming Tuesday night discussions about the future of nonprofit arts journalism and how to increase the impact and reach of your online arts criticism.
Join us on Facebook, via Zoom following the instructions there, or RSVP at the link below.
