Speaking of innovation... I'd like to recommend the podcast of nytheatre.com (called Nytheatrecast.)
It's a fine way to keep up on what's happening around the Downtown NY theatre scene, as well as listen to directors, actors, producers and writers discuss what they're up to and why. Great stuff, and they're just getting started. I'm sure they'd welcome feedback and suggestions regard future podcast subjects as well.
Of late there have been discussions about the American Living Room Festival at HERE Arts Center, a chat with the composer of Titus X (a punk rock Titus), previews of the New York International Fringe Festival, a talk with Ian W. Hill about his piece at the $ellout Festival earlier this summer, and even (on an early podcast) an interview with me and my pals about "The Most Wonderful Love."
