Welcome to Upstage Reviews! I’m Matt Barton, an English student at the University of Manchester who also reviews theatre in Manchester, London and across the UK.
I participated in the 2018 Greater Manchester Critics Scheme, led by Catherine Love. I also co-presented the theatre radio show ‘Off-Script’ in 2018 on the University of Manchester’s Students’ Union radio station, Fuse FM – podcasts of some of the shows are available on SoundCloud.
Since August 2019, I’ve been a freelance critic for WhatsOnStage and A Younger Theatre. I’ve also written about the arts for Graduate Recruitment Bureau: https://www.grb.uk.com/blog/subject-snobbery-are-creative-subjects-overlooked.
