NOT YET DEAD CAT BUT…
Since I stopped being The Times Chief Theatre Critic it has been five years: on this site there have been 930 posts, over half a million words, all still free and searchable. A dozen or more plays reviewed are still running, and well worth catching.
But being a singlehanded review website, and living in Suffolk, is expensive in travel , and means heavy use of writing time and brain-space. And I need to try and finish a book .
SO – I am taking three months off reviewing here.
May be found doing the odd newspaper review as a substitute if asked, and flitting through the cheaper stalls occasionally. Maybe tweeting a five-word comment. But it would be wrong to clutter up press seats without uttering a view (even a wrong one!)
I am not, let me stress, yet quite a Dead Rat (here’s a picture. I hardly ever award Dead Rats. They come below 1mouse).
All being well, theatrecat.com will be back late March. Twitter (I am lib_thinks) shall announce it. .
Thank you for all your support,. And from the theatrecat , all its mice (including the Panto-Damemouse) A HAPPY CHRISTMAS TO ALL AUDIENCES, THEATREMAKERS AND RANDOM INTEREST GROUPS WHO ARE GOOD ENOUGH TO READ THIS SITE ! MAY YOUR HEARTS MOVE AND YOUR HEADS BE DAZZLED IN 2019.
