How we work during Edinburgh Fringe
Now the Fringe is under way, we’re in busy mode – reviewing, interviewing and seeking out fine Fringe work.
We don’t review everything at the Fringe and, unlike many other publications, our review team of about 20 people chooses what to see. We all work off a shared document but no one is “sent” to see shows.
So we can’t guarantee to review everything but, if you’ve sent us a press release, a reminder, a plea for a review – thank you. That’s exactly the right thing to do. It all goes into our melting pot and, if a reviewer chooses to see the show (which means they freely want to!) then they’ll review it.
If you’ve filled out one of our interviews, these go up selectively during the month.
Finally, we have some slots available for advertising on FringeReview. Your ad will go up within 24 hours and stay up until the end of your run. It’s great value and putting an ad on one of the most respected online publications in the world might just boost your ticket sales.
Once again, we wish you all the very best of success at this year’s Edinburgh Fringe
The FringeReview team
Passionate about Theatre
The Background Reading
FringeReview is the reviews publication that actively seeks out good theatre. Established in 2006, FringeReview is a team of writers, performers, directors, producers and theatre practitioners who are passionate about theatre.
Fringe Review is a low carbon footprint publication that attracts a readership comparable to a paper-printed publication.
Our Reviews Policy
We do not review all events on offer, but rather make a considered selection. We seek out good quality theatre and tend to review shows having already researched a group, writer and piece in advance. Our reviews are written by people who work in the field. We do not shy away from detailed, constructive critique, as you can see from our Reviews Policy which is available on our web site. FringeReview is the “Good Food Guide” of theatre, as we only publish reviews of shows that reach our RECOMMENDED threshold. We seek excellence and publish it.
Reviews are designed to enable audiences to enjoy Fringe theatre. We sit on the “fringes of the Fringe” and dip in on their behalf. Our reviews also offer constructive critique and assessment for theatremakers.
FringeReview currently covers Edinburgh, London, Brighton, Oxford, Bedford, Amsterdam, Adelaide, Prague, and parts of the UK.
FringeReview Edinburgh reviews Edinburgh Fringe theatre each August. Our Edinburgh editor is Paul Levy. You can reach Dan at firstname.lastname@example.org or Paul at email@example.com
We review hundreds of shows across our regions, projecting 300-400 shows for review in Edinburgh this August with over 100,000 visits to our web site over the Edinburgh Fringe last year.
