The Weekly Howl on Tues, April 24

"Please, Don't Start a Theater Company," or Let's Figure out the Future

Join us every Tuesday for our weekly discussion on Twitter using the "#newplay" tag.

Tomorrow we'll take Rebecca Novick's article "Please, Don't Start a Theater Company! Next-Generation Arts Institutions and Alternative Career Paths" as a starting point to discuss alternative models for supporting theater work and a career in the theater and see if there has been progress since Rebecca wrote about this topic two years ago.

Rebecca, @rebeccanovick, will be co-moderating with us and we'll start the discussion on Tuesday, April 24 from 12pm-1pm PDT /1pm-2pm MDT / 2pm-3pm CDT / 3pm-4pm EDT / 7pm-8pm (GMT) / 8pm-9pm (London – BST) / 9pm-10pm (Berlin – CEST).

To participate, put “#newplay” in your Twitter messages to get your voice heard!

One hour prior to the Howl, DJ with us in the HowlRound Turntable room. Let’s hear you spin some tracks!

Your essay on this rocked my socks. I am sharing it with friends. The concept of the Indy Bands as a model is one that I whole-heartily endorse - and live in my play-making world. Dig it.
