“Every critic is a performer. Just as an actor has to hold an audience, keep them gripped, leave them waiting for more, so the critic has to draw in the reader, interest them and engage them. Because your focus as a theatre critic is on the entertainment provided by others, you may not realise that you too are expected to entertain. But that’s what’s happening.”
