A&E expands to offer more for our readers

Niels Strandskov

It almost seems like too much of a good thing.

First, we reintroduced A&E last semester, after a three-year absence. Now, we have the chance to bring you A&E in broadsheet format. Hopefully, this will allow us to present our coverage of arts and culture with more verve and pizzazz than was possible in a tabloid-size paper. We won’t change the content of the stories we bring you, but the larger paper will give our design staff a chance to wow you with brighter, more colorful and more diverse layouts.

Perhaps the main change in our structure is that each A&E beat (Onstage, Music, Film and Culture) will no longer have its own page, at least for the time being. However, we trust that you will be able to discern the CD reviews from the theater reviews with little difficulty. Likewise, the combinations produced each week might highlight new and interesting connections between different artistic disciplines that might have gone unrecognized before. In any case, our commitment to bringing you the best arts stories, told in the style you prefer, remains central to our mission.
