Out West Arts: Performance at the end of the world

Opera, music, theater, and art in Los Angeles and beyond


April 17, 2007

Not that anyone’s counting…but did anyone else happen to notice that all three of the finalists for this year’s Pulitzer Prize in criticism write for LA publications about this great city. The winner was LA Weekly’s food critic Jonathan Gold who beat out two of the Los Angeles Times’ best - art and architecture critic Christopher Knight and the always remarkable and very readable classical music critic Mark Swed. Congratulations to all three. Apparently while those outside LA may still debate the existence of the city’s non-cinematic cultural life, there is little argument (at least among the Pulitzer committee) about the city’s ability to write about it.

And most of this from a paper repeatedly on the chopping block due to its lack of "national cache".
