Corrie Tan caught up with award-winning British theatre critic Lyn Gardner when she was in Singapore last month from 24 to 28 January, before they both appeared on ArtsEquator’s public panel discussion on Theatre Reviews: Last Word or the Start of a Conversation, together with Sean Tobin and Alfian Sa’at.
