Recognizing that the most common assignment given to students in connection with their visit to YPT is a play review, we developed, in collaboration with Jon Kaplan of NOW Magazine, a post-show Q&A specifically about the art of writing reviews. Since 2015/16, we’ve engaged Grade 8 student Sayak to help facilitate these special post-show Q&As called “Everyone’s a Critic“.  The next one is coming up on Mar. 3 after the 10:15AM performance of James and the Giant Peach! In the meantime, check out Sayak’s thoughts on our musical adaptation of Roald Dahl’s classic book here.
