Michael Appler
regional managing editor - United States - New York

Michael Appler is a theater journalist, playwright, and cultural studies scholar in New York City with degrees in Journalism and American Studies from Fordham University. His writing has appeared largely in the Village Voice and the Fordham Observer, where his theater criticism helped to create the most active theater desk at any college paper in the country. His scholarly research has focused on racial performance in the music of Janis Joplin, as well as the countercultural projects of the late-1960s and early-1970s American musical. He has worked as a professional musical director at regional theaters across the New York area, and his current playwriting project, Letters To The Editor, looks to dramatize the American sexual revolution through the letter-writing communities of Penthouse Magazine.
