The Drama Desk Board is pleased to announce that Barry Gordin is our new website Editor in Chief.
Barry is a well-known photographer whose celebrity photos have appeared in publications around the world, including People and InTouch. His weekly photo column, Gordin’s View in Dan’s Papers, was a staple of the social scene for over two decades, and his photos appear regularly in almost every publication in the Hamptons. His work has appeared in group shows at galleries in SoHo and on the Eastend.
Barry is also a theater critic, Editor in Chief of TheaterLife.com, and a voting member of the Drama Desk.
INVITATION FOR MEMBERS TO WRITE FOR THE WEBSITE AND POST THEATER COVERAGE
As the new Editor in Chief, Barry will welcome submissions of original features and interviews to be included on the website . In addition, Drama Desk members are invited to submit their latest reviews (or links to reviews). Features should cover news about theater or about members’ noteworthy activities and achievements. If you are submitting the text of a review rather than a link, please also submit a photo and caption.
Submissions should be made by going to the site, DramaDesk.org, and clicking “Contact.” At “Contact,” you will be asked for your name, your email address, your subject (which should be “Member Submission”), and your message (in which space you should paste your link or the text of your article or review).
As editor, Barry must reserve the right to determine how much material can be published and the time of publication.
