Confessions of a Theatre Critic:  Interpreting the World Through Theatre

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

To be a theatre critic means that you have to go to the theatre, or any arts event wearing multiple hats. There is the constructive criticism and analysis, the theatre fan, and it requires an awareness of what the audience around you is experiencing. All of this has to be articulated when assessing and writing your review which can make this process seem a bit daunting! Yet these same traits are useful beyond the seat in the theatre as well. Creative and critical thinking help promote problem solving, encouraging multiple perspectives, and the ability to articulate on these with others in all walks of life. This will cover how the aspects of a life lived in theatre, and then moved into critiquing theatre; can develop transferable skills to help others grow in their future pursuits in education, business, and life. You will leave knowing how to make a theatre review assignment really relevant and meaningful to your students
