Life of a Broadway Critic

On this "In The Wings," Michael Riedel and Christine Nagy talk about what it is like to be a Broadway critic.

Michael and Christine reminisce on the origin of their love for Broadway. They discuss the first Broadway musical they ever saw. Flash forward to present day and Christine is an actress and Michael is a Broadway critic. Being a critic is NOT easy. People get very angry with you and people who you thought were friends often turn their backs after hearing your review. Michael says "I think the smart people on Broadway know, shows come and go, but the press is always there. They may beat you up this year with a lousy show, but the press may celebrate your new show next year and turn it into a big hit." Could you handle the backlash of being a critic?
