I’ve been championing theatre, online and offline, for more than 20 years – and am as passionate about it as ever.
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 until December 2013.
Since then, in addition to blogging and tweeting 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, co-founded with fellow commentator Mark Shenton, is a portal for independent theatre journalists and bloggers, as well as home of the Also Recognised Awards.

NEW post-show Q&A: Fri 19 Oct
After 3Women and Late Company, Stage Traffic present another major play premiere at Trafalgar Studios: the first European outing for American Ken Urban‘s acclaimed two-hander, A Guide for the Homesick. Can you confess your greatest fear to a stranger? Douglas Booth and Clifford Samuel play two strangers who, miles from home, find each other in a hotel room in Amsterdam. On Friday 19 October, I’ll be joined by Urban, the stars and director Jonathan O’Boyle.
NEW post-show Q&A: Mon 29 Oct
My first Q&A with the Soldiers’ Arts Academy company of veterans and actors in Jonathan Lewis‘ new play Soldier On in March was an incredibly moving evening. Their transfer now to The Other Palace for an extended season is hugely well deserved. There’s so much more to discuss about PTSD and the role that theatre can play in healing. On Monday 29 October, I’ll be joined by the company to discuss.
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.
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.
