Hi crazy kids! Recently I did an email interview for a woman who's working on a project about artistry and criticism, and I thought her questions were interesting and thought-provoking! So, per her permission, I decided to cut and paste the Q&A below. Check it out and let me know your thoughts.
What do you believe is the purpose of critique? Do you like reading (or writing) reviews for books, theater, music, even products? Have you ever had to face unsolicited criticism? Share in the comments section below!
1. What was the first official criticism (review) of your work that you ever received? How did you feel about it?
FR: I was first reviewed in college, by the Yale Daily News. I remember thinking it was a strange concept. When you work on a character and throw yourself into a role, there's little concern for how things look or how "good" it is. It's just about being truthful and finding whatever clicks for you as the performer....
