CurtainUp Publisher & Editor-In-Chief

Elyse Sommer
CurtainUp evolved from her popular Going Places column about the arts and entertainment scene in the Berkshires and her theater reviews as a guest critic. Elyse is a member of the Drama Desk the Outer Critic's Circle.

A number of Elyse's theater pieces have been included in anthologies like Discovering Literature and Strategies for Reading and Arguing About Literature by Prentice Hall and used as part of online education programs

Elyse has been in the publishing business from the time she graduated from New York University's School of Journalism, first as a magazine editor and then as an author's agent and book packager. In the latter category, many projects were her own such as an almanac in the famous WorldAlmanac series, The Kids' World Almanac of Music, Similes Dictionary and Metaphors Dictionary. A new updated edition of the Similes Dictionary has recently been published by l Visible Ink Press.
