Best of This Week's Theatre Blogs - 2 Apr 2010Date: 2 April 2010
Change was at the forefront of bloggers minds this week, with technology strongly playing its part. Gratuitous Violins showed how the internet is changing reviewing and wrote passionately about why Bloggers shouldn’t be made to delay reviewing shows until after Press Night. Meanwhile at Glen’s Blog it was the question as to whether online ticket purchasing means the end of the Box Office (and what it might mean for the theatre-goer if it did).
Katie Barry at the TCG Blog tried watching a recording of a theatre production online for the first time, concisely blogging the pros and cons of the experience. On the Birmingham Hippodrome Blog it was a look at the changes which the theatre has made to “go green” which was the focus.
Finally, to prove that some things don’t change, on the World Theatre Day blog there was a rather personal look at why theatre matters.
