When John Moore took the buy-out from the Denver Post, he left a gaping void in the Denver theater scene -- a void that will be tough to fill, if it can be filled at all. Longtime Westword theater critic Juliet Wittman talked about Moore's departure with many people who are part of that scene, and they're all wondering what the next act will be.
Thank you for the article on John Moore. I have known John for over 25 years and it was really nice to see a piece about him that was like so many he's written about others.
Adds journalist Mark Harden:
Bravo. Wonderful piece. John Moore is one of the best beat reporters I've worked with in 30-plus years in newspapers.
