Favorite Reviewers and Critics

I think it's very easy for artists to find fault with critics - but I'm curious...which theater reviewers, writers and critics do you tend to enjoy and why? Anyone out there you find particularly insightful? Fun to read?

David Barbour at Lighting and Sound America is a hidden gem of american theater reviewing. Other than that I'm a fan of the Big Three at Time Out, Jason Zinoman and Scott Brown.

I enjoy the TimeOut critics a lot. I also really like Mark Peikert, formerly with NY Press, now with Drama Desk.

Charles McNulty, LA Times - always something original there, always worth reading.
