Happy Birthday to Us!

/ Mar 29, 2017

One year ago today, we launched Intermission. 

Since then, we’ve published hundreds of articles—some by artists, some about artists; some easy reads, some thought-provokers; some short, some long.

We’ve put the spotlight on pillars of the community like Ravi Jain, Eda Holmes, and Diego Matamoros; we’ve heard from both emerging artists and established ones. We’ve covered topics including gender-blind casting, onstage nudity, teaching and training, politicsreligion, virtual reality, race in the rehearsal hall, making comedy out of tragedy, the importance of supporting actors, and clown attacks.

We’ve branched out into In the Round, our round-table video conversation series. We’ve started talking to some of the Canadian playwrights publishing their work in Hot Off the Press. We’ve been interviewing established theatre artists with In Conversation.

We don’t plan on stopping anytime soon. But we need your help. We’d love to hear from you about what you like about Intermission, what changes you’d find helpful, and what you want to see more of. If you have a minute to spare today, please let us know what you think by answering a couple quick questions, and tell us more in the comments below. How can we better connect you to artists in theatre, and how can we better connect audiences to you and your shows? Let us know!

What do you think Intermission should do more of?
