Victory Gardens Space Named After Tribune Critic

Typewriter A retired theater critic will be getting a studio in Chicago’s Victory Gardens Biograph Theater named after him. Richard Christiansen was a theater critic at The Chicago Tribune for over 40 years before retiring in 2002. The space will be dedicated in his honor at a ceremony on March 1. Many people in the entertainment industry who claim to have been supported by Christiansen donated large sums of money to the space, according to the Chicago Tribune. Christiansen joins the ranks of fellow critics Walter Kerr and Brooks Atkinson, who have namesake theaters in New York.
