How Did American Theater Deal With The Trump Era? Urgently

“For the most part, it didn’t aim straight at the president. … Rather, producers elevated formally adventurous, politically incendiary plays — like Heidi Schreck’s What the Constitution Means to Me and Jeremy O.

As part of his HBO deal, Harris has secured a discretionary fund for experimental-theater production, essentially a weird-art slush fund.” – Vulture
