September 27, 2019 - Lynn Slotkin: Did We See the Same Show?Register
Lynn Slotkin will outline her journey from the 12 year old kid taken to the theatre for the very first time to becoming a theatre critic, and on the way she will talk about the difference between a critic and a reviewer, tell us why critics are important, and try to answer that perennial question “Did we see the same show?” (Hint: even though we might have been sitting side by side, no, we did not see the same show - and Lynn Slotkin will tell us why not.)
Lynn Slotkin publishes an on-line newsletter The Slotkin Letter which chronicles her theatre going in Toronto and internationally. The Slotkin Letter is used as a resource for actors, directors, artistic directors, and ‘civilians’ who are keenly interested in theatre.
