About Me (Adrian Dimanlig)

IMG_2672I am a life-long performing arts fan devoted to the search for artistic and intellectual excellence and moments of transcendence. My involvement in the arts includes participating for a number of years as a Joseph Jefferson Awards Committee Member in Chicago, as well as a Nominator for the Drama Desk Awards in New York. In addition, I am also current member of both the American Theatre Critics Association and the International Association of Theatre Critics.  The never-ending search for revelatory theatrical experiences has led me across the performing arts (theater, dance, opera, music, cabaret, circus arts, performance art … you name it, I cover it) and performances large and small (Broadway, Off-Broadway, Off-Off-Broadway, regional, tours). As of this publication, I have attended nearly 5,000 performances across the United States and around the world. I believe that alchemy occurs in the physical space shared between storyteller and audience. I also ascribe to the idea that the ephemeral nature of performance is a microcosm for our time here on this rock.
