Critical View is Hennepin Theatre Trust's student reviewer program!
SpotLight's Critical Reviewer Program gives high school students the opportunity to attend and review touring Broadway productions and SpotLight productions. Critical Review is part of a larger curriculum that teaches communication skills, and enhances critical thinking and creative response. As part of this program, students receive study guides and press kits before the show, learn from experts including local theatre critics, playwrights and actors who discuss topics from lighting design to choreography, and in some cases, have expanded access to the Broadway touring cast and crew. Students post their reviews and interact online through the Critical Review Clubhouse (here!)
This program is funded through the generous support of Fred and Ann Moore.

Better yet, buy a ticket, and you'll get to see the fantastic event all these fantastic people have congregated for. Rock of Ages, a snappy, mature, and hilarious musical about finding your true passion in the…Continue
An equally fitting title for Rock of Ages would’ve been That’s-What-She-Said: The Musical. Indeed, the humor and the nature of the show, with it’s G-strings and liberal use of the word “balls”, is anything but high-brow. You’ve got to suspend disbelief (and to some degree, your moral compass and intelligence) in order to enjoy it. The Les Miserables sect of the Broadway empire need not inquire further, unless if they’re ready to…Continue
