Chad has left the building

Chad Jones, prominent and great member of the Bay Area Theatre Critic world has left the Oakland Tribune, as part of the Tribune's effort to become as bland, non-regional and obsolete as it possibly can.

Fortunately for the rest of us, Chad will live on at his new website where he will continue to write about and review local theater. Support him there!

I think we're very lucky in the Bay Area to have such a vibrant core of theater reviewers from the the dailies, weeklies and, much more so now, blogs. There seems to be a unique interaction between theatre artists and critics in this area. Some of them even throw parties together (still trying to make one). Not that the critics are pulling any punches in their reviews, but there seems to be a level of respect for the most part. Don't stop believin, people
