Who is The Sappy Critic?

Kirk Sheppard is a professional counselor and a vociferous connaisseur of theatre. This love of live theatre has led him to become a playwright and actor, but mostly he prefers to blog about the shows from his perspective as an audience member. This blog is chock full of his opinion; yet, the goal is for every single theatre to be sold out every single night . . . so he encourages you to go see all the plays and musicals to determine your own tastes!
