Theatre that is reviewed is
Theatre that is reviewed is the theatre that is valued in worldwide culture.
Work that is not discussed is in danger of becoming an irrelevance.
The decline of mainstream media and the significant drop in revenue streams has led to critics being laid off across the world, and less space for theatre reviews. But these same cultural shifts have given rise to platforms presented by new and diverse voices that engage theatre-makers in different ways and create an on-going dialogue – whether it be on social media or essays online. The review is no longer the last word, but only the start of a conversation.
As we move into the digital age of the 21st century, it is perhaps time to re-examine the relationship between critics and artists. How can critics and artists work together to widen dialogue around theatre, and serve both the art and audiences better?
