Critic Tweets and the Art of Giving it Away for Free

Just a heads up, folks.

Critique of the Week

Again, since we’ve brought in a new LemonMeter editor, the incomparable Jonathan “JT” Ross, I don’t have the opportunity to read as many reviews as a I used, but I have missed the smart, personal and sometimes off-the-rails offerings from EyeSpyLA’s M.R. “The Huntress” Hunter and I did manage to land on this particular one recently and thought I’d highlight it as this week’s COW.It’s an excellent offering, smart, personal and thorough, but most of...

Stage Raw Symposium Celebrates Bitter Lemons' Contribution to Los Angeles Theater Criticism

Oh, it was a glorious night indeed! All the best and brightest minds of LA Theater – or “revolutionaries” as Steven Leigh Morris rightfully knighted them – were in full formation: the LA Times’ Margaret Gray, desperately in need of a hair clip, moderating, Charles McNulty from the LA Times, expounding, John Flynn from Rogue Machine, being sage-like, Steven Leigh Morris from Stage Raw and LA Weekly, wistfully musing, Tracey Paleo from Gia on the Move, making sense, Bill Raden f...

LA Times Revisits the Bitter Lemons Imperative

Bit of a harsh assessment from Mike Boehm that the BLI has “fallen flat” and “failed to take hold” considering that we’ve averaged one review a week since the end of the Hollywood Fringe Festival, but I guess that’s what happens with early success; 38 reviews out of the chute and everybody expects you to be turning them away at the door I guess. Actually, the slow and steady pace of the BLI right now is what I expected at the beginning, so no alarm bells over here. ...

The 16 Best Theater Critics in Los Angeles

Obviously this list is simply one man’s opinion. My opinion. But I will assert that it is an informed opinion, well informed. There is no one in this city who has read more theater reviews in the last eight years than me. And there is no one in this city who has written more about theater criticism in Los Angeles in the last eight years than me. Again, doesn’t make me an authority, it’s essentially a subjective exercise, but it certainly makes me somewhat of an expert on the subject. Let’s ju...
