This is the final week of shows!
NEW BRIEF AVAILABLE – Review
Many theatre productions are reviewed by members of the press, who attend a performance and comment on the creative elements that come together on stage during a performance.
Theatre critic Van Badham has provided some top tips for reviewing a play. If you've seen The Taming of the Shrew, or are planning to attend, why not read our brief and send us your review.
Van's top tips are:
1. Establish a context. What is the name of the show? Where is it on? Why is it happening?
2. Give us a sense of how the show works. What are the choices the director has made?
3. Give an evaluation. Look at intention and then look at realisation.
4. Make a verdict. Was it alright? Was it great? Would you recommend it to your friends?
5. Most importantly, above all else be honest and have fun!
