Shannon Tyo was last seen as Afong Moy in Ma-Yi Theater Company’s production of The Chinese Lady at The Public. Other New York credits include Kentucky with Ensemble Studio Theater and Bikeman at the Tribeca PAC. Regionally, she’s performed at Berkeley Rep, Barrington Stage, Pioneer Theater Company, Baltimore Center Stage, Kitchen Theater Company, and The Old Globe. Shannon won a 2021 SOVAS Award for Audiobook Narration, and recently won a Lortel Award for Outstanding Lead Performer in a Play.

3Views was conceived after an illustrious group of female theater friends, organized by Sarah Ruhl and The Lillys, came together to address the white male critical response to the Broadway runs of Paula Vogel’s Indecent and Lynn Nottage’s Sweat. These master writers had long been denied a Broadway stage and a homogenous group of critics, who were not members of the core audience for which the plays were intended, were able to influence early closures. The consensus at the meeting was that diversity and multiplicity in criticism were necessary, or the recent gains in diversifying American theater would be damaged. The goal was not only to create a new publication, but a new model of criticism.

Issue 6 features three female writers (two of whom are queer) responding to Paula Vogel's How I Learned to Drive. These are not objective reviews, some of the contributors are personally connected to Paula, but honest, critically engaging, personal reflections. They place you in the audience and by Paula's side. Happy reading!
