Plays To See explores diverse cultures through the medium of the performing arts.Plays To See promotes interest in the theatre and foster dialogue, understanding and appreciation for different artistic productions around the world. Our scope is wide-ranging, from Greek tragedy to stand-up comedy; from ballet and opera to mime and experimental theatre.
We believe that theatres create the living laboratories in which we can examine the ways that people present themselves and their own cultures to others.
We also believe that young people have a particular responsibility to take stock of what they see about them and to report their findings to the world at large.
Plays To See, which was founded by Rivka Jacobson in 2010, enables reviewers to share their impressions, passions, and judgments on theatrical and other productions.
Reviewing is an art that has to be learned. It involves far more than telling the story of the play and applauding celebrities’ personalities.
A reviewer is tuned in to a community or nation, and is aware of the dissonances as well as the harmonies in society.
The reviewer notes what is moving or magnificent, reveals what is excruciatingly painful, and shares what is simply fun.
Our website is a registered charity with dedicated trustees.
As a lot of our reviewers are students we have facilitators, often associated with universities, who invite reviewers to join us.
We are interested in all forms of the performing arts – drama, musicals, ballet, mime, cabaret, opera and more.
Plays To See is all about encouraging enthusiasm for the performing arts and developing critical appreciation.
Plays To see is a showcase for talent, particularly young talent, allowing them a platform to share their knowledge and appreciation of drama, musicals, opera, comedy, cabaret, ballet and even the circus.
Our reach is truly global so our reviewers have the pleasure of knowing that their reviews will be read by people around the world.
