This week’s episode is a little bit different. The entire hour long episode is dedicated to a conversation with one of North Carolina’s longest serving theatre critics, Roy C. Dicks.

After 21 years, and 1,200 shows reviewed, Roy has retired as the News & Observer’s resident theatre critic, and I wanted to dedicate an entire episode to talking to him about live theatre in the triangle. We talk about how he began life as a critic, the shows that have stood out to him, and what he thinks makes for great theatre.

Please, sit back, relax, and listen.
