“Has anybody ever seen a drama critic in the daytime? Of course not. They come out after dark, up to no good.”
― P.G. Wodehouse


My name is  Joshua Metter and I run Theatre Box!

A fresh new theatre blog aimed at bringing exposure to shows that are worth seeing, from the tiniest of pub theatre, to the biggest on the West End. But mostly the fringe stuff to be honest.

We’re all professional creatives, and like writing about it.

Based primarily in London, the blog endeavors to review at least one show a week with an overnight turnaround.

For more information regarding our work – or to invite us to a show – please visit the ‘Contact‘ page.
