About Us

Unlike theatre reviews written by industry insiders to promote their friends’ shows, we create honestly simple written & video reviews to help audiences decide what’s worth the time, money and effort to attend!

Let’s be honest: going out can be a hassle, and money doesn’t grow on trees. No one wants to waste time at a show they won’t enjoy, but the “safe bets” on Broadway are too expensive to catch more than once-in-a-while. And who has time to dig through hundreds of event listings and questionable crowd-sourced reviews in search of the perfect show? Nobody, that’s who!

Opplaud cuts to the chase with short, unbiased written & video reviews that quickly tell you whether a show is worth it, from the draw of the story to the value for the money to the comfort of the seats. If you’re a cast member looking for your name in print or a producer digging for quotes then you might be disappointed, but if you’re searching for a great performance, we’ll help you find it!

Subscribe now to enjoy going out more than you ever imagined, for less money and less risk than you ever thought possible!
