Welcome

I’ve been championing theatre, online and offline, for more than 20 years. For over 16 years, I was the driving force behind the British theatre website, WhatsOnStage.com, and the WhatsOnStage Awards. I co-founded the company and oversaw its editorial content, branding and events.

Since 2014, in addition to my activities here, I’ve launched two new, media businesses: StageFaves.com is a pioneering social media directory and fanbase-building platform for musical theatre; and MyTheatreMates.com is a portal for independent theatre journalists and bloggers.

Upcoming events include thought-provoking plays such as Other People’s Money, The Reality, The Glass Piano and David Bowie tribute Heroes; Michel Legrand‘s five-time Tony-nominated musical Amour; and new takes on classics like The Taming of the Shrew at the Royal Shakespeare Company and Oscar Wilde‘s Salome. More events added every week.

Testimonials

I’ve been following you on Twitter, and I’m so glad I found you. I’m an actor who finds it hard to keep up with all the various castings, season announcements, changes of personnel at theatres… and you do all the work for me, which is BRILLIANT. Also, on actorly ‘down’ days, it’s great to be reminded that there are people who are so genuinely enthusiastic about theatre out there.
Nicola Sangster, Actor
I have enjoyed working with Terri for many years, on events around productions, as a journalist and a commentator. She is highly knowledgeable and perceptive, and a great champion of theatre.
Terri is a knowledgeable advocate for theatre in all its forms. Her enthusiasm for the medium is tireless and infectious. She has built an important bridge between the profession and the audience, and that work will continue successfully in various exciting new ways.
