Our mission is to provide you an insight into the theatre world, you're not going to find anywhere else. 

Our site is interested in telling the stories that deserve more attention, sharing the honest opinion even if it's the unpopular one and exposing the truth however harsh it may be. 

We're going to make you nod your head in approval and shake your head in disgust. But we're always going to make you think.
