COMMUNITY CRITICS

READ THEIR REVIEWS ABOUT OUR SHOWS!

Community Critics: Town Hall Theatre Talk Across Generations is a project that was inspired by attending an arts engagement panel at the Theatre Bay Area Conference in March 2017. One of the panelists, John Wilkins, Theatre Critic for KQED Arts, presented these closing remarks, "We want people to talk about theatre", and "Theatre has a responsibility to create a place of conversation", to which Town Hall Theatre has begun to ask:

How can Town Hall Theatre get more people, across generations, talking about theatre, together?

10 Community Critics from across generations will talk about our shows on our blog and on social media. These critics were selected from the Lamorinda community through an application process held in the spring.
