As meaningful coverage of the performing arts dwindles in newspapers across the country, industry experts come together to envision new possibilities for the future of arts criticism. Part idea slam, part dialogue, this forum will attempt to get out ahead of current trends and imagine what could be. Hear the panelists' manifestos and engage in a dynamic conversation about where we ought to be heading, and how to get there. Moderated by Polly Carl, Editor of HowlRound.com and joined by: Sasha Anawalt (Publisher, www.Engine28.com), Ilana M. Brownstein (Founding Dramaturg, Playwrights' Commons), Gordon Cox (Variety), Thomas Graves (Co-Producing Artistic Director, Rude Mechs), William F. Hirschman (Chair, New Plays Committee, American Theatre Critics Association), Deborah Stein (Playwright), and Diep Tran (American Theatre Magazine).
