Michael Phillips delivers ‘Perspectives in Criticism’ at ATCA Conference in July
Michael Phillips, film critic for the Chicago Tribune, most recently shared TV’s “On the Movies” with A.O. Scott as joint successors to Siskel & Ebert. Before that he had a record cross-country tour as theater critic, moving briskly from the Dallas Times-Herald to the San Diego Union-Tribune to the St. Paul Pioneer Press to the Los Angeles Times to the Tribune.

ALSO ATTENDING: guests at the conference include playwright Jamie Pachino, winner of ATCA’s $10,000 Primus Prize (2009) for an emerging female theater artist.
NOTE: The seagull version (above) eventually outpolled the non-seagull version (here) of the conference’s O’Neill & Critic logo; both appear on the conference banners and also the conference necktie, for the critic who dares flaunt his Daumier. (Anyone intrested in an unusual present for the critic who has everything, maybe even a job, send an email query; we can offer the logo in a nectie as well as a scarf.)
