McNulty enters stage left, after long intermission

Yesterday, the LAT announced it had hired Village Voice-er Charles McNulty to fill the long-vacant lead drama critic position, and today Nikki Finke reports on why the paper took so long to find someone. In summary, the paper wanted a big name, but big names in the theater criticism world don’t want to move to LA, because they want to be able to cover New York / London. The long wait for a new critic has left the Los Angeles theater community feeling alienated from the paper– and believe me, theater people are easy to alienate. Finke describes McNulty as a “safe but pretty uninspired choice.” Well, he should be a perfect match for covering all those safe-but-uninspired Taper productions.
