Theatre blogging - a discussion from London

If you're near your computer this afternoon, there's going to be a panel discussion on blogging and theatre criticism at the Royal Court Theatre in London starting at 6 p.m. GMT. (That's 1 p.m. Eastern Standard Time, if I've figured it out correctly.)

You can listen live online here. If you miss it, a recording of the session will be archived at the same spot. It's called "Brickbats in Cyberspace: How blogging is changing the landscape of theatre criticsm in London and beyond."

The panel will include Charles Spencer, lead theatre critic for The Daily Telegraph, Andrew Dickson, arts editor for The Guardian's Web site, Judith Dimant, producer of the theatre company Complicite, and leading bloggers and theatre professionals.

I don't know whether those witty and erudite bloggers the West End Whingers - also known and Andrew and Phil - will be participating, but there is a link to them on the Web site announcing the event, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

And thanks to The Mirror up to Nature for the tip.
