Blanche Marvin, has been involved for over 50 years in writing, directing and producing theatre in London and in New York which has given her a unique approach to reviewing London theatre and transfers to New York or visa versa. Her depth of knowledge, and experience make her a most practical plus influential reviewer on the theatre scene in London today. She reviews the full schedule of shows for each theatre which draws a picture and identity of the theatre venue as well as the plays. It paints a picture of the current themes running in the theatre, and relates to the style or trends most dominant, in addition to explaining why theatre will or will not work in London or New York when transferring.
Blanche was awarded the MBE in the Queen's Birthday honours.
