How do you calculate the scores for the Critics’ reviews?

Several people - longtime, knowledgeable theater-goers and champions of the art form - read and score the professional review. In general their opinions of a review score cluster around the same range. When they diverge sharply, we discuss the differences to come up with what we believe is the best score.

That said, we strongly prefer that professional reviewers and bloggers score and excerpt their own reviews, instead of leaving it up to the Show-Score staff to do it for them. To change the score of your existing review, please send us an email at
