Twice a month, theatre critics Diep Tran and Jose Solis will discuss three shows at three different price points (usually in New York City, because that’s where they’re based), tell you which show is most worth your time and money, interview interesting artists you should know about, and rant and rave about various theatrical topics. So want to get a dose of theatre as you’re at the gym, or in between scene changes, or on break during tech? Take your Token Theatre Friends with you.

Really important podcast. These guys are creating a space for diverse voices in theatre!

1/2 of a great podcast

I listen religiously because the basic content is pretty terrific, but this is actually only one-half of a satisfying podcast. Jose Solis is engaging and thoughtful. His co-host: not so much. What troubles me repeatedly is her hysterical laughter, which frequently launches immediately after she’s said something bold, shocking, or inappropriate. Sometimes her hysterical laughter strikes for no contextual reason. I’ve listened to every episode and have begun to dread the experience because of her. But what the two of them explore is actually consistently fascinating, so I’ll persevere.

Finally

Finally, a well done podcast for and by People of Color in the Theatre. Guess what white folks, not everything is about you and if you are uncomfortable with having a conversation about marginalization, too bad. Diep and Jose are fiercely passionate and insightful. The artists they bring on to interview are amazing. LOVE THIS. Keep it up, Friends.
