Why should we review local and regional professional theatres at all? After all it's just an opinion.
But it should be an educated one, and this book shows by example reviewing at its constructive best.
What makes a good critic or reviewer? Aren't they the same thing? Check it out here for yourself.
Big city theatre reviews are either so scholarly the average person doesn't read them or so entertaining without saying anything. ActingSmarts as Shaw is known by shows how the writer should write reviews, how consumers should take them and how theatre people can learn from them.
A show can be entertaining without being art. It can have weak points but soar to great heights elsewhere. Since every audience is different, most actors agree, every performance is different, too. Every review should be different. They are often used to promote just to promote, and can be used to dissuade people from seeing a show.
We’ve seen shows that thrilled and ones that disappointed.
So, what should a reviewer be?
