The first rule is that there are no rules — you're writing a review to express your thoughts and feelings about a theatre show, not taking an exam. There are as many ways to write a review as there are personal responses to any production. There is no right or wrong. Allow yourself to develop your own distinctive voice , and be honest about what you really think about a production: convey your enthusiasm for it or explain why you disliked it.

Going to the theatre can be a magical experience, but writing a critical review of a theatre performance can be a challenge even for the most insightful and attentive theatre-goers. Criticism also highlights the good and offers constructive suggestions for improvements that might make for a better performance. Your goal should be to fairly assess what you saw, good or bad, according to the merits. Sure, standard writing guides can tell you about typical structure and a professional writing service has a format that it follows when a customer orders up a review. However you choose to express them, as long as you are conveying your reactions to your audience clearly and honestly, there is no wrong way to do it.
