Remembering Kenneth Tynan

Theatre critic Kenneth Tynan was a legend. “It is tempting to wonder how he would fare today, at a time when criticism itself is changing, partly because of a democratising technology that makes everyone an opinion-pusher, and partly because of a rampantly consumerist culture. But my hunch is that he would have loved the new trend towards fact-based drama and would have relished writing about our more idiosyncratic actors.”
