FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE / PRURGENT
London, UK, April 20th, 2012 – WasThatGood.com, a new online resource with a mission to bring independent theatre reviews and opinion to fans of stage shows all over the country, has launched this week.
The website is introduced with a goal of replacing partisan and advertising-based websites which currently host show reviews. WasThatGood.com will be home to genuine show reviews written and posted by true fans rather than journalists touting agendas. The website will carry reviews on all the latest shows, from Jerusalem through to the likes of Les Miserables.
WasThatGood.com was conceived and developed by theatre fan Robert Stuart, after he found himself disillusioned with the quality of show review websites available. The new online resource will be home to reviews from all the top shows currently being performed at every London theatre.
Robert Stuart commented on the new site, "I had no doubt that there would be an audience for a website which offered genuine, honest theatre reviews - so I set about building WasThatGood.com. Too many theatre review sites around today carry just adverts or promote only those shows they are involved with in some way. WasThatGood.com will be home to real, impartial opinion and views about shows."
The current economic climate has seen lots of people stop spending money on going to the theatre, for fear of seeing their money wasted. One of the goals of WasThatGood.com is to drive people back to the theatre by way of unbiased reviews and opinions from fellow fans.
On top of the impartial review services it offers, WasThatGood.com will also give users information about show times and dates, a searchable database of shows by rating and also the chance to buy tickets online.
WasThatGood.com was born in an attempt to give the public a say in the world of theatre by offering an independent forum for them to share their opinions. The intent is to promote open discussion regarding the theatre, which could very well lead to improvement as theatres will have to face reality and will no longer be subject to only a handful of critics who have a channel to the public.
WasThatGood.com is giving the public a voice and theatres will now have an army of critics to contend with. The site is completely independent so users can be confident that what they read is truly the opinion of someone who saw the show and not simply another promotional tactic.
