I'm not sure how big a deal this is, but The New York Times seems to be venturing into new Web-vs.-print territory with two theatre reviews today, both marked "Web exclusive" (here and here). I don't read enough of the rest of the Times online to know if this is a new phenomenon, or if this is just a fluke--a way to run a few reviews that might otherwise have been axed due to space considerations. But it seems worth noting when the nation's preeminent print publication "prints" something you can only get online.

Both links lead to the same review. There's a lot more content online than in the print edition of the NY Times. That I don't object to as much as I do to those columns and articles marked Times Select, for which one needs a special subscription. What exaclty does becoming a Times Select subscriber mean? This kind of naming always reminds me of a production I saw many years ago of Moliere's Don Juan, in which Dimanche (the tailor) delivers the clothes he makes in garment bags embroidered with the tagline "Better Clothes for Better People."
