Her writing has appeared in the New York Times, American Theatre, Hello Giggles, Playbill, Time Out New York, Backstage, CNN, Salon and other publications. She is a judge for the 2020 Obie Awards and is a 2020 Drama Desk Award voter. She specializes in arts and entertainment reporting, with a focus on diversity and the ethics of representation.
She is RAD AS HELL and an incredibly important voice in the arts. We'll talk about what playwrights and theatre makers can learn from/with theatre journalists, critics, and thought leaders.
