Event Details

Past era films such as “All About Eve” and “Valley of the Dolls” had parts of the plot with the cast waiting for the morning papers to come out so they could read the reviews the very next day after opening night?

Then there came to a period of time when it took two or three days for a review to appear as the newspaper business changed.

Now with the printed medium becoming somewhat obsolete and websites covering events in real time it is almost like we are back to a period when reviews can be published almost as fast as they can be written. What will this do for the future of theatre criticism? Will the quality of coverage go down or is this a good thing that will enhance theatre criticism? What role will social media play in it?

An august panel of Bay Area theatre critics and editors take to the stage to answer these and other questions and predict the future of the business of reviewing theatre.
