Shaw Festival Reviews is a site I launched to build on the success of Stratford Festival Reviews. Both are is independent sites, founded by me Keith Tomasek. I grew up in Montreal where I studied theatre. Later I lived in Winnipeg and Toronto where I wrote and produced award winning films, television and radio.

I lecture at the University of Western Ontario and recently moderated an event on campus with Jian Ghomeshi from the CBC Radio program Q. My research interests include social media. I’ve spoken at international conferences about the blogosphere in the United Arab Emirates, where my wife Suzanne and I lived and taught for 3 years.

2013 marks the fifth year of operations at Stratford Festival Reviews.

During the 2012 Stratford season the site averaged 1,300 pageviews per day. Our users spend over 3 minutes per visit on the site, which is much higher than Google benchmarks for this type of site. Our bounce rate is 2%.

Our audience is active theatre goers. They visit the site for the reviews, news and deals.

We work with a certified Google Adwords professional from Bottree Digital Services. Bottree builds digital marketing and communication plans for large and small companies. Clients include The National Ballet of Canada, The Richard Ivey School of Business, and GoodLife Fitness.

Thanks to everyone who has submitted reviews and posts, you continue to make Stratford Festival Reviews a great place to spend some time.
