After twenty years as The New Yorker's senior drama critic, John Lahr is stepping down (although he will still write Profiles for the magazine). Here Lahr talks with his editor Deborah Treisman about growing up in the showbiz world of his father, Bert Lahr; the role of theatre (and critics) in our culture; and the playwrights that have been important to him. Also: 2012 book recommendations from Louis Menand, Judith Thurman, and Marisa Silver.
In a time where we're all threatened by a rhetoric of hate from the people in power; A Gay And A NonGay challenges many of our differences head on and promises that no matter who you are, or what you're into (Bruce Springsteen or Britney), love is love and gay and nongays can be friends.
