Let’s Get This Started

I have been a writer and editor at TIME Magazine for more than 30 years. For the past several of them, I’ve been the magazine’s theater critic. But I don’t get to write about nearly everything that I see. And so I’m starting this blog, as an outlet for some of my views about shows, playwrights, and other theater-related issues. And also, occasionally, other topics that interest me: comedy (I’m the author of two books: Comedy at the Edge: How Stand-up in the 1970s Changed America and Hope: Entertainer of the Century), television (I was TIME’s television critic for much of the 1980s and ’90s), movies (I learned a lot from Pauline Kael and Richard Corliss), and maybe more.

    1. Steve – Thanks for my first “comment.” I still have some tweaking to do. Someone thought I shouldn’t refer to “dwindling” space in the magazine, in my first post introducing myself, so I might delete that. And that first post should really be on an About page instead. Anyway, I will refine.
