The renowned theatre critic will join the popular theatre app to write exclusive content, focusing on cutting-edge theatre.
Stagedoor is a theatre app designed to bring more people together through theatre, making information about shows and venues as accessible as possible. As well as information, the app also allows audiences to share their reviews while bringing together the reviews of critics as well.
This new editorial platform will allow theatre critic Lyn Gardner to cover the theatre that she wants to celebrate – including theatre that doesn’t get coverage in the mainstream media.
Lyn’s section on the Stagedoor app will be updated every week and will feature show-specific recommendations as well as long-form thematic journalism, responding to the latest trends and topical dialogues.
Talking about the news Michael Hadjijoseph, Co-founder and CEO of Stagedoor said: “Lyn has always sought to cover a broad and diverse range of artists. It’s this dedication, and the ability to spot the most exciting and innovative artists, that has made her the UK’s most trusted critic – and the perfect fit for Stagedoor. We are thrilled that she has chosen to make our app the new home of her criticism. By working together, we will keep pushing the boundaries of theatre journalism by combining the latest technology with expert recommendations.”
Meanwhile, Lyn Gardner commented: “I’m hugely excited to be joining Stagedoor and starting an entirely new chapter in my professional career. I thought long and hard about how and where I might continue to review theatre, and I had several tempting offers. But I see the future as digital, and Stagedoor’s enthusiasm for theatre — from the tiniest fringe venue to the biggest West End house — matches my own.”
