Longtime University of the Arts Liberal Arts Professor Toby Zinman was recognized by American Theatre magazine as "one of the nation's most influential theater critics" for her work as a theater critic with The Philadelphia Inquirer and Philadelphia City Paper.

She is also the regional reviewer for Variety, a regular contributor to, and has written for the London Times and The New York Times.

Zinman is a professor of English at UArts where she was awarded the prize for Distinguished Teaching. She has published widely and lectured internationally on contemporary American drama and was a Fulbright professor in theater at Tel Aviv University.

She has received five grants from the National Endowment for the Humanities. Her third book, Edward Albee, was published by University of Michigan Press in the spring of 2008 and her newest book on Arthur Miller's play, All My Sons, was published in June 2010.

Her third career as an adventure travel writer has taken Zinman all over the world, dogsledding in the Yukon, ziplining the rainforest in Belize, walking coast to coast across England and rounding up cattle on horseback in the Australian Outback.
