1 The Critic and the Audience Stage Spaces

2 A critic someone who observes theatre and then analyzes and comments on it. Serves as a knowledgeable and highly sensitive audience member Criticize to find fault or to understand and appraise Critic should have a broad understanding of theatre and all its elements.

3 Critical questions: What is being attempted? Have the intentions been achieved? Was the attempt worthwhile?

4 Descriptive criticism attempts to describe as clearly and accurately as possible what is happening in the play or a performance Prescriptive criticism not only describes what has been done but also offers advice or comments about how it should be done.

5 Master Class is receiving a splendid realization in Main Street Theater's current production. This is a tricky work to pull off, because it demands a star performance of boundless range, presence and passion someone capable of behaving maddeningly without making you mad at her. The role is an actor's banquet and Celeste Roberts not only rises to, but transcends the occasion, pouncing on the opportunity like a tigress feasting on a succulent lamb.

6 McNally cunningly structures the play as one of Callas' master classes at Juilliard. Though her singing voice is gone by this time, she is still eager to share all she has learned. But oh! Her way of sharing. She goads, interrupts, humiliates, browbeats and otherwise tests the three young aspirants with whom McNally shows her interacting. True enough, it's a tough business, not for the thin-skinned. The interaction with the students is crucial especially Callas' confrontation with soprano Sharon, the most gifted and ultimately bravest of the trio. Reacting to a cruel putdown, Sharon lets Callas have it: I don't like you. You can't sing anymore, and you're envious of anyone younger who still can. You want us all to sing as you did, recklessly, so we'll lose our voices in 10 years, as you did.

7 Reviewer usually works for a news organization and reports on the events. Restricted time or space Critic greater detail in describing and analyzing the event. Scholarly magazines or journals

8 Dramaturg dramatic advisor Reading new plays Work with playwrights on development of new works Conducting research on previous productions Preparing reports on the history of plays Researching criticism and interpretations of plays Writing articles for programs Creating educational materials
