"'Backwoods Barbie' provides just the right amount of heartbreak and 'Get Out and Stay Out' is a triumph!" ~ ELTC’s 9 to 5 the Musical, reviewed by Alex James Parsons


All of our reviews are written by members of the ExTS Reviewers: a hand-picked group of dedicated volunteers with fantastic writing skills and a love for all genres of theatre. Your production will be carefully matched to a reviewer who is best suited to a performance of that genre. To learn more about our reviewers, visit the ExTS Reviewers page.


We offer two types of reviews: Blogs and Tweets. “Tweet length” reviews are no more than 550 characters whereas blog posts have no limit, allowing our writers to go into more detail. We will generally try to produce a blog review, however, there are occasions where this is not possible.


If you would like your performance reviewed, send an email to (Subject: “REVIEW- SHOW NAME”) and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible. All we require is at least one comp ticket and access to promotional materials.


Here is an example of a tweet-length ExTS Review by Editor Alex James Parsons:


Exeter Little Theatre Company surpassed expectations by far. Elaine, Kate and Josie have incredible voices along with Samantha, who's a scene stealer for all the right reasons! The whole cast is incredibly enthusiastic and their hard work pays off- you all deserve a fat promotion!


"Backwoods Barbie" provides just the right amount of heartbreak and "Get Out and Stay Out" is a triumph! 9 to 5 features fantastic costumes by Kes Keslake plus an uplifting, tony-nominated score by Dolly Parton. You cannot miss this show!
