Michael Sander, former Broadway theatre critic, will present “The Shows You Love — and the Critics Who Hate Them” at the Crosslake Chautauqua Program from 1:30-3:30 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 11, at the Crosslake Community Center.
Sander will discuss the power and influence of the “experts” who tell us which Broadway shows, movies and television programs we should see and which we should ignore.
Sander, best known in the area as the director of several productions for Pequot Lakes Community Theatre, has been an actor, director and editor, as well as a theatre critic. He will explain the nature of criticism and critical standards, describe productions that defy all the odds, and conclude that the most successful performances are those we like best.
The program is free to the public.
