Ian Thal is a playwright and theater educator based in the Boston area. He is a performer and teacher of mime and commedia delléarte. Due to a twist of fate his poetry is probably better known in Albanian than in the original English. He is senior contributor and theater critic for The Arts Fuse as well as former community editor for The Jewish Advocate.
