I've been a writer, editor, and critic in the Bay Area for almost two decades. The regional theater scene around the Bay remains one of the best and most diverse of any in the country. I've tried to bring a critical eye to the work of Bay Area theater companies for nine years now, delighting especially in work that challenges and delights the exceptionally cultured audiences here.
