Charles McNulty Named New Theatre Editor for The Village Voice

News   Charles McNulty Named New Theatre Editor for The Village Voice
Charles McNulty is the new theatre editor for The Village Voice. He replaces Brain Parks, who left the job on Labor Day.

McNulty's byline has for many years graced reviews in the Voice's theatre pages. He has also worked as the literary manager for the McCarter Theatre of Princeton, NJ. McNulty will preside over a reconfigured section. Parks departure came in the wake of a staff-management scuffle over the Voice's new layout design, which resulted in shrunken space for the weekly's chief arts critics (though the overall space devoted to each art has not changed, according to a Voice spokesperson). Two months ago, Voice theatre critic Michael Feingold used his column to lament the change, which will bring his word court down from roughly 1,500 words to under 1,000 a week. Parks, too, communicated his frustration and disappointment in a recent article in the New York Observer.

A large part of McNulty's job will be the organization and running of the paper's annual Obie Awards, which honor Off-Broadway theatre.
