Who Is Martin Denton?
Theatre Development Fund – TDF: Usually a theatre critic can be found in his seat, trying to take notes without pulling focus from the onstage action. But in Chris Harcum's new play Martin Denton, Martin Denton, the reviewer is the one in the spotlight. "Martin Denton has done so much for independent theatre," says Harcum, who also stars as the titular character, a real-life theatre lover turned critic who founded the once very active nytheatre.com. Directed by Aimee Todoroff and running at the Kraine Theater, this one-act is a celebration of an influential Off-Off-Broadway champion.
