Moderated by Michelle MacArthur, PhD Candidate and Instructor for DRM 231H: Theatre Criticism

  • How are blogging and social media changing the nature of theatre criticism?
  • How does the democratization of reviewing enabled by the Internet influence the relationship between artists, audiences, and critics?
  • Is it possible to discuss theatre in 140 characters or less?

Come join our roundtable discussion of theatre criticism and the Internet, featuring four local cyber-stars.

Audience members are invited to tweet live during the event using the hashtag #TheatreCriticsRountable
