Irish Theatre Magazine is an online cultural journal dedicated to in-depth coverage of theatre and the performing arts in Ireland.

Founded in Dublin in 1998 by Karen Fricker and Willie White, from modest beginnings ITM established itself as a highly respected quarterly cultural print journal. Produced by a small team led by Editor-in-Chief (1998–2005) Karen Fricker, with Managing Editor Maura O'Keefe and Art Director Susan Conley, it was (and remains) generously funded by the Arts Council of Ireland (An Chomhairle Ealaíon).[1]

Since 2005, it has been edited by Helen Meany and her colleagues, and continues to expand its news and feature coverage of all aspects of the performing arts, while upholding its commitment to review every new Irish (professional) theatre production. Its growing readership includes theatre artists, professionals and keen audience members.

In 2009, ITM moved exclusively online, with a new website launched in September 2009.[2] Future plans include the creation of a comprehensive ten-year digital archive of the publication, to provide a resource for researchers, scholars and anyone interested in learning about key developments in an art form for which Ireland is internationally renowned.
