Remembering Mike Kuchwara, plus the Aughts in Review

Friday, August 20th at 12:30 AM

on CUNY TV:
Saturday, August 21st at 8:30 PM
Sunday, August 22nd at 12:30 PM and

In tribute to our colleague and friend Michael Kuchwara, the revered longtime critic of the Associated Press who died on May 22, 2010 at the age of 63, we present an encore of our December 2008 panel about the decline of the role of the critic featuring Kuchwara and his fellow critics John Heilpern, then of the New York Observer (now at Vanity Fair) and Jacques LeSourd, of WCBS Radio. This program was taped the week that LeSourd was laid off from his drama critic’s job of 35 years at Gannett newspapers (he was not replaced) and they discussed the diminishing influence of drama critics in our society.

Also this week, we look back at the previous decade with Jesse Green of New York Magazine, Michael Musto of The Village Voice, and Patrick Pacheco of the Los Angeles Times.  They discuss the highlights, lowlights, and significance of the works presented on Broadway between 2000 and 2009.
