We, the Geeks at the New England Theatre Geek, pledge to be an organization that celebrates diversity and inclusion through arts journalism. We are dedicated to supporting our Arts Community regardless of the dark times to come. NETG pledges to use its space to promote loving tolerance, and to shun hate in all its forms. The New England Theatre Geek will keep sacred the ideals of compassionate criticism, upright moral standards, and resistance to oppressive thought control. You are welcome here.
The New England Theatre Geek is a pro-theatre, intellectual theatre blog that features critiques and articles to excite and educate the audiences. Critiques and reviews are curated with respect to the genre and style to the production featured. Our arts journalism is provided with the intent of developing audience interest in attending theatre events as well as inspiring better understanding of the theatre arts. In so doing, it is our goal to respect the artists as well as the art. In this economy, all audience members are looking for quality and value, and we want them to feel comfortable with expensive ticket purchases. In addition, we do not want one production to prevent a theatre from developing repeat business.
