Songs for the Struggling Artist


What I wish American Theatre would learn from the Brits (#6)

#6 Openness for Writers

Anyone can send a play to almost any theatre that does new writing in the UK. Mostly, they’ll also write you back and tell you what they thought. They will not send you a standard rejection letter. They will reference specific things in your play that indicate that they have actually read it. Just try that at an established American theatre.

You absolutely have to read this article by Allan Katz about this. It’s genius.
