Tony Adler

Tony Adler is old and wise. A long time ago he wrote Leaves of Grass, but now he's the Reader's senior theater critic. In the 116 years between finishing Leaves and becoming a Reader staffer, Tony mostly worked as a freelance arts journalist and critic. But he also published some more poetry, wrote a few plays, and cofounded the Actors Gymnasium, a circus arts school in Evanston. Careful, girls! He's married.
