Deputy Editor
Gemma Wilson is Seattle magazine’s deputy editor, who spent many years in New York getting degrees in theater and journalism, working for Broadway legend Hal Prince and eating one million brunches before moving back to her hometown. She was a theater critic fellow at the Eugene O’Neill Theater Center, and her work as a writer and critic has appeared in outlets including, Playbill, Crosscut and the late local City Arts magazine, where she was a longtime senior editor. She spends a lot of time sitting in theater seats and airplane seats; if she’s in town, she wants to see your show. Truly.
