Theatre Critic almost wins Pulitzer

More Pulitzer news...

The "Criticism" award may have gone to Washington Post dance critic Sarah Kaufman.  But one of the runners-up was none other than the Voice's Michael Feingold.

Michael Feingold of The Village Voice, a New York City weekly, for his engaging, authoritative drama reviews that fuse passion and knowledge as he helps readers understand what makes a play or a performance successful.
(Times movie critic A.O. Scott was the other finalist.)

Kudos to Michael.  Good news not only for a hard working veteran critic, but also for the field itself to have the recognition.  Yes, America there are still full-time drama critics and they're worth keeping!

Lets hope this staves off any further cuts at the Voice!
