About Rescripted

Welcome to the official Rescripted Patreon!

Rescripted is an online publication based in the Chicago theatre community. We publish reviews, artist interviews, and essays on the performing arts.

We are a collective of theatre professionals from all levels and disciplines in the field who are interested in engaging with their peers on a critical level. Founded by Regina Victor and Katherine O’Keefe, Rescripted is a response to the national shortage of theatre critics and the need for a broader range of voices in the critical sphere. Rescripted aims to reprogram the way we critically engage with each other while cultivating critics and adding new voices to the field. Our leadership is queer and non-binary, and our reviews place emphasis on BIPOC voices and viewpoints.

As of 2021, Rescripted is no longer angel-funded; instead, we are funded by you, our community. All of our reviews, essays, and other content are completely free and ad-free. Our Patreon is a way for you to support us so we can continue advancing our work: giving artists agency in their critical process, and reshaping our field from a place of empathy, justice, and accessibility -- as well as paying ourselves and our writers a decent wage. Thank you for your support!

If you’re a theatre company and want to support us, we are offering social media marketing opportunities via our platforms on Facebook and Instagram. Please contact us at [email protected] for more information.
