SF Weekly Seeks New Theater Critic

Posted By on Mon, Nov 16, 2009 at 12:30 PM

After five glorious years as our chief theater critic, Chloe Veltman is moving on to a bigger stage. She's now writing a weekly arts column for the new Bay Area section of the New York Times. (Her column debuted yesterday.) We're sad to see her go, but happy to see such a prestigious publication recognize her for the superstar she is.

Chloe's good fortune could also be yours. The Weekly now needs a new theater critic.

We're looking for people willing to write critically and honestly about Bay Area theater; we don't want cheerleaders. Think you've got what it takes? If so, send a cover letter and copy of your résumé to Please include samples of reviews you've written -- positive and negative ones.

Applicants must be knowledgeable about San Francisco's theater scene -- its venues, playwrights, and actors. A background in theater is a plus. Please, no phone calls.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
