One of Broadway's longest serving critics, Michael Kuchwara of the Associated Press, died yesterday at the age of 63. He was working almost right up to the end.
The outline of his career is clearly one of a past era:
He began his 40-year career at The A.P. as a reporter in the Chicago bureau and later moved to New York as an editor on the national desk. He took over the theater post in 1984.One must wonder: will the AP replace him? More likely, if they're like any other news outlet, they will phase out the post altogether.
