Broadway Baby, one of the longest-established theatre sites on the internet, has named Bethan Troakes as its Brighton Editor.
2016 is going to be Broadway Baby’s biggest year so far and Beth, along with the stellar team already in place, will be playing a huge role in our wonderfully ambitious plans.
Troakes brings years of experience to the role as both reviewer and sub-editor for Broadway Baby in previous Fringe festivals. Troakes also has practical knowledge of working with an arts company and produced shows herself.
Talking of the appointment, Troakes said “I am delighted to be appointed the Brighton Editor of Broadway Baby and am extremely excited to be a part of the flourishing arts scene in Brighton, starting with the Fringe in May. With its unique cultural scene and the largest arts festival in the UK, Brighton is a leading centre for theatre, comedy, dance and much more.”
She continued “Broadway Baby is committed to supporting Brighton artists as the leading reviewer in the city and with our team of skilled reviewers and editors we aim to present the best of Brighton to our audiences in May and throughout the year.”
Troakes was appointed by Broadway Baby’s Brighton Publisher, Nick Abrams. He commented “Beth was the star candidate from a strong line up of potential editors. She is an experienced arts journalist who has shown herself to be deeply committed to the Brighton theatre scene.
“Having been a part of the Broadway Baby team previously, and combined with Beth’s producing credits, she is the ideal person to lead Broadway Baby as we expand in Brighton. 2016 is going to be Broadway Baby’s biggest year so far and Beth, along with the stellar team already in place, will be playing a huge role in our wonderfully ambitious plans.”
