All Registered Critics write theater and art reviews for their own publications and then rate registered shows on our website and add their LemonMeter rating. Please contact them through their own website to congratulate them and to get them to review your production.

Tomorrow we will announce the winner of the "Theatre Hound" Award - which goes to the critic most likely to review the hidden gems, off the beaten path, those with short runs and small budgets.
