Okay now that the fun and games are over (see this post for the final results of our last BLIP) let’s get back to basics: What is the Main Purpose of a Theater Review?
Here are the poll results so far. Remember you can’t see the results unless you vote, SO VOTE!
I thought this might be an interesting poll because I have heard, on many occasions and from many critics, producers and artists alike, a wide variety of opinions on what exactly is the role and function of a theater review in the Twenty First Century. I suppose it all depends on your point of reference, point of view and point of departure. I thought about making the question “What SHOULD be the main purpose of a theater review?” But decided to stay away from sentiment and remain focused on what you think a theater review is, now, at this moment, what it is and what it does.
Also, I’m happy to add another option in the vote if anyone wants to add their two cents to the question.
All right. That’s it. Let’s see what the LemonHeadNation has to say on the question. VOTE!
