Grandage Rates Whatsonstage.com???
Date: 21 July 2003
Well, we don't mean to blow our own trumpet, but we're tremendously chuffed to learn that the Donmar Warehouse's Michael Grandage is such a fan of Whatsonstage.com. In our latest "Changing of the Guard" interview, published today (See Features, 21 Jul 2003), the artistic director explains what he thinks our own humble website has in common with his esteemed London theatre. "What I like about your site is that it has aspirations beyond just the gossipy side of it all. It seems to say 'we believe in theatre as a force that can change and engage people, a force that pushes people's boundaries'. That's what I want the Donmar to do. And your website reaches out to those people. It's aggressive about theatre and is for people who genuinely want to be serious theatregoers." Well said, Michael. We rather like what you're doing, too - both at the Donmar and at Sheffield Crucible. To all our other readers, if you're a fan of Whatsonstage.com (famous or otherwise), we'd love to hear from you. We're currently compiling a portfolio of endorsements and would welcome yours. Feel free to email us with any comments. And many thanks in advance for your time!
