I am having a couple plays coming up--plays that will be reviewed. I have had few reviews of my plays thus far and I'm both looking forward to being reviewed and also dreading it.
Some writers and actors have told me they don't read their reviews. I don't know if I can control my curiousity enough to do that but in the end I think it might be better for my sanity.
At the same time, I know there are review writers out there trying to help playwrights not make the same mistakes over and over. So maybe it would be good to read some reviews.
But not if they make me freeze up and dread writing.
I don't know. Do you read your reviews?
