Theatre Shelf, a column dedicated to recommending books, CDs and DVDs, launches today, written by Brad Hathaway, one of Washington’s favorite theatre writers.
Among his many contributions to Washington theatre, Brad may be best known for his pioneering Web site, Potomac Stages, in which he nearly single-handedly covered area professional and community theatre for eight years. Brad now follows his first loves – musical theatre, design and orchestrations. He is writing for such publications as American Theatre Magazine, The Sondheim Review and Live Design, while continuing to review for newspapers in Northern Virginia and filing a monthly column in The Hill Rag in Washington. He’s a member of the Executive Committee of the American Theatre Critics Association.
A longtime friend to DCTS, when Brad suggested this column to us, we jumped at the chance to feature him. Look for a new Brad Hathaway review in Theatre Shelf every Tuesday.
