The Hunter College Department of Theatre is proud to announce the inauguration of a new public-event series: TheaterMatters—An Artists and Critics Review Panel.


TheaterMatters will bring professional theater critics together with practicing theater artists to review current New York City theater productions in front of a live audience. Curated and moderated by Hunter Theater Professor Jonathan Kalb, an award-winning theater critic and scholar, this series aims to alter the temper and expand the reach of theater criticism by presenting it in the form of informed and involved public discussions.


The series begins Monday, March 19, 2018, 7-9 p.m., with:
Peter Marks (Theater Critic, The Washington Post)
Fitz Patton (Broadway and Off-Broadway Sound Designer, Founding Editor of Chance Magazine)
Alisa Solomon (Professor, Columbia Graduate School of Journalism, critic for The Nation and many other publications)

These panelists will discuss:

Angels in America: A Gay Fantasia on National Themes by Tony Kushner—a Broadway production at The Neil Simon Theater


Jerry Springer: the Opera by Richard Thomas and Stewart Lee—an Off-Broadway production by The New Group at The Pershing Square Signature Center.


The panels will take place in Hunter’s Loewe Theater (68th St. and Lexington Ave.), will include Q&A with the live audience, and will be recorded for podcasting. All events are free and open to the general public as well as the Hunter community.

SAVE THE DATE: The second TheaterMatters panel will follow on Monday, May 14, 2018. Details available soon!


Admission to TheaterMatters is free, but seating is limited and reservations are advisable.
