Playwrite and Review with Caution

I don’t know how I missed this St. Pete Times article by critic John Fleming from January 2009 on the ethical complexity of an individual working as both a playwright and a critic, but it is an interesting read as are the responses it elicited, particularly Michael Feingold’s. The debate was sparked by concerns about one particular critic-playwright, Mark Leib of Tampa.

This topic was also touched on more recently over at Parabasis as part of a larger conversation about the expectations and responsibilities of theatre criticism. Traveling right now, but I’ll put up the link later.
