Tim Masters
For many years, Tim Masters was a BBC arts correspondent covering the UK theatre scene. In 2017 he changed jobs at the Beeb, but he still loves to escape to the theatre as often as he can. With London’s theatres just a Boris bike ride away, he thought he’d get back into writing about the plays, the actors, the creatives and the excitement of opening nights. The Man in the Grand Circle is a personal blog and not related to the BBC.
