Comments

  1. What a wonderful community resource! Many thanks.
    Two suggestions: It would be great to be able to click on the name of a show and reach your review. I think you reviewed the Roundhouse’s The Lyons, didn’t you? So I’d love to be able to click on the Lyons and see your review, or the WashPo’s, or whatever.
    Perhaps a symbol of some kind to indicate that a show is intended for little ones? Obviously, if the title is “Goodnight, Moon” it’s obvious, but otherwise, it would be nice for a parent to scroll down and see if any theater (other than the usual suspects) is showing something for younger people.
    Finally, there are occasional events of interest to theater lovers: lectures, on-stage interviews, fundraisers, awards, etc. If you listed them here, this would really be a go-to site for ALL theater-related events.
    Thank you again. This is truly useful.
    With appreciation,
    Wendy Leibowitz
