So after revealing that Michael Billington is nicer* than Lyn Gardner, here are the results for the Evening Standard critics, Henry Hitchings and Fiona Mountford.
And the winner is… Henry Hitchings, with and impressive 54.67% of reviews rated at 4 or 5 stars, beating Fiona Mountford’s 46.51% by a solid margin. Interestingly, these were both higher than the Guardian critics’ scores of 43.75% (Billington) and 31.70% (Gardner).
So there we go. Daily Telegraph up next…
*where nicest equates to percentage of theatre reviews given 4 or 5 star ratings.**
** as counted by me, very unscientifically.
