Lately there has been a little more activity. For instance, there is a little review of How Shakespeare Won the West attached to Jenna Scherer's review of the same production.
And a Herals pre-show piece about The T Plays, which Mill 6 will be putting on this weekend has a concise comment from a Mr. or Mrs. VoxPopuli:
Sounds complicated, confusing, expensive and a waste of time - just
like the T - perfect!! Can't wait to see it
The Globe is getting more into the blogging game with other departments and you can comment on Geoff Edgers' Exhibitionist blog, but the reviews themselves are still off limits. I can only assume that the Globe will eventually add a Performing Arts Weblog or a Theater Blog.
Chris Jones of the Chicago Tribune runs The Theater Loop weblog, which has played host to some memorable controversies and discussions about everything from Awards to Equity to theater real estate. You can also watch video scenes from current running productions. True, most posts are simply Jones' regular reviews and features, but at least they are in the swing of things.
The Guardian in London runs an arts blog in which critics, artistic directors, playwrights, actors and many more have contributed posts. Most recently, Theresa Rebeck posted about how women playwrights were being underrepresented on Broadway. This post started a flurry of response and activity across the internet.
