Jacqueline E. Lawton, DC based dramaturg, teacher and playwright (her play The Hampton Years officially opens next Monday at Theater J) has made time in her busy schedule to include a feature rich blog on her Web site.
In the past she has used it to interview women from the area who are artistic directors, directors, dramaturgs and playwrights.
This week, she has posted her interviews with 10 women theatre critics and we are very pleased to announced that among them, she has chosen five DCTS writers: Debbie Minter Jackson, Rosalind Lacy, Jennifer Perry, Jayne Blanchard and Susan Galbraith .
It’s a wonderful series, in which we get to know these writers better, discover their writing process, learn their opinions on and purpose for writing criticism and thoughts on how race and gender are handled within the DC theatre community.
For new writers, the women offer encouragement and some very practical advice.

This was a fascinating look into what goes on in the mind of theatre critics, what they bring to the theatre in terms of background, interests, prejudices, intelligence. Well done!
