His name was mentioned to me last week as a possibility, and now it's confirmed: Village Voice senior editor Charles McNulty has been named lead theatre critic at The Los Angeles Times, ending the three-and-a-half-year standoff since Michael Phillips left. His qualifications are impressive; I'm wondering if he will continue to run the MFA program in Dramaturgy and Theatre Criticism at Brooklyn College (go here and type in "McNulty" to see his bio) while reviewing for the LAT. Maybe I should take a class from him.
UPDATE: Catching up with his writing, I'm encouraged. A fine example here. More here, here, here, and here.
