On Saturday, October 27, from 10 am to 12 noon, Better Lemons and Theatre West will be hosting “Meet the Critics!” part 2, featuring several of LA's premier critics for a panel discussion of theatre criticism.
This is a great opportunity to meet the critics face to face and to get insight into effective strategies for engaging the critics and partnering with them in promoting LA Theatre.
We will be addressing questions such as “What is a critic's role?” and “How do you reach out to a critic?” and “What are critics looking for?” and “How can we work together?”, and the biggest…”How do I get a review?”
Plus, we'll hear some tips on how to contact them and how to pitch them!
