The first anniversary of East Midlands Theatre.com has just passed and we are delighted to report over 25K hits in one year. This website was built on the back of over three years previous experience reviewing and promoting for Phil Lowe Actor/Writer blog.


As well as reviewing for this site Phil Lowe has also regularly reviewed for Nottingham Post, Big Issue online with 69 magazine recently taking up one of his reviews. Phil also writes professional features and interviews for the theatre magazine, Sardines.


Phil has a highly skilled, articulate style; methodical and well-researched in his approach. Phil’s writing technique is adaptable across a broad spectrum of publications. Having worked with Phil on numerous occasions at Nottingham Playhouse, Phil has always met my expectations and never failed to deliver on commissioned pieces of work. I would encourage any Marketing/ Communications team in an Arts venue to use Phil Lowe as a freelance writer/reviewer.”

    Phil It was a pleasure to see you both briefly at The Curve the other day, and having been steered by them to your website I can only say how impressed I am by both the EMT site itself and your beautifully written, superbly well illustrated review of Scrooge. You do a great service. See you anon, hopefully. Kind regards, Roderic
