Martin Morrow is a Canadian arts journalist who has been reviewing theatre regularly (and film, quite often) since 1988. He was the theatre critic for the Calgary Herald from 1988 to 2000; the arts, books and lifestyle editor of Fast Forward Weekly (where he also served as main theatre critic) from 2003-2006; and a producer (read: writer and editor) for the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation’s CBC.ca/Arts site (2007-2011). Most recently he was the theatre critic and a theatre/film columnist for Toronto’s The Grid—now defunct, alas. In between he has had an ongoing freelance relationship with The Globe and Mail, currently as the paper’s second theatre critic.
A fan (albeit not an uncritical one) of new and experimental performance, Morrow is the author of Wild Theatre: The History of One Yellow Rabbit (Banff Centre Press, 2003), a popular chronicle of the esteemed avant-garde Canadian troupe. He is also a long-time board member (and currently vice-president) of the Canadian Theatre Critics Association. And, needless to say, he is fond of writing about himself in the third person.
