Episode 210 – Time Out New York Drama Critic, Adam Feldman

One of the most interesting things I learned about Adam Feldman, Time Out New York’s chief theater critic, is that he loves going to a good ol’ piano bar.  

Well, like so many of us, our favorite pastimes aren’t possible right now.

But that doesn’t mean we can’t figure out another way to enjoy what we love to do, which is why I couldn’t help but smile (a much needed one) when I read this article written by Adam, that one of his favorite piano bars was going virtual.

Something tells me that he had something to do with it.

You’ll hear all about Adam’s love for piano bars in this week’s podcast recorded BV (Before Virus), as well as some incredibly insightful comments about the current state of theatrical criticism, and . . .

  • What the future holds for critics of the theater (and if anything) 
  • How he manages to see a hundred shows a year and keep a fresh perspective.
  • What he looks for when he sees a show, and how that translates to his reviews.
  • Chat rooms, blogs, and how they affected what he does.
  • The process of writing a review and how that has changed over the years.
