Critics' Perceptions of Directors' Work
On March 1, 1984 director James Furlong moderated a panel of theater critics featuring Theater Editor for Village Voice Erika Munk, Theater Critic for WNEW-TV Stewart Klein, and Theater Critic for New York Magazine John Simon. They address the impact of good and bad reviews and the dynamic relationship between theater artists and critics. The discussion includes what these particular critics perceive as good direction, the criteria they use when analyzing a director's work, and how they follow directors' careers and watch for trends. This exciting conversation opens a window into the world of theater critics and their relationship with the rest of the industry players.
