Welcome to the
Massachusetts Entertainment & Theatre Review (aka “METR”) Magazine®

Are YOU a "METR Reader"?

METRMag® (pronounced "meetermag") is a professional web-based magazine for Massachusetts theatrical and entertainment reviews.

Twitter: @Metrmagreviews

Facebook: METRMag

To provide fair and balanced online reviews of performances taking place in Massachusetts. These reviews may be shared online via social media or printed as needed.

There are NO fees involved for any basic listing of an UPCOMING SHOW or a REVIEW.

Featured stories, awards event coverage and theatrical reviews will ALWAYS be free.  

Currently we do NOT list/review radio plays, play festivals, workshops nor any student productions.

FEATURED STORIES and REVIEWS will remain on the METRMag site until such time as they may be required to be archived. 

Once any UPCOMING SHOW has passed its final performance date, the listing will be removed.

If you have a production coming up, please send your information and we will be happy to list your show for FREE under “UPCOMING SHOWS”. Send to Reviews@Metrmag.com 

Our primary goal is to have reviews posted in a timely fashion, usually within 24 to 48 hours, depending on the level of activity taking place. Some listings may take longer to post. So, please do allow for this extra time.

Graded reviews are provided. These are subjective but, generally, METRMag uses a "four-star scale" with four stars (****) being best.

  • If you wish to submit photos, please make sure proper attribution is provided.
  • If any errors are spotted, please make sure to contact us immediately for a correction.
Any of our affectionately called "METR Readers" ("meeter reeders") will be able to “Like”, “Comment” and “Share” either by Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram, E-mail or other social media options.

If you would like your active theatre company website added to our "CENTRAL MASS THEATRES" page, please let us know.


A major difference between METRMag® and other standard print publications is that we try to cover one weekend performances which tend to be overlooked due to time/print restrictions.

However, if you do have an event that is only one weekend and yet still want a review, METRMag will be happy to see if we can schedule in a review.

Contributions in lieu of any stipend may be requested for any specialized event coverage but we never will charge for a show's listing or review. Contact us directly for details and to schedule.

We are not restricted by service area, as with most print publications. So, if you are seeking a review for an event that is within an accessible distance for us to travel, we will certainly make the attempt to get there. Contact us directly to schedule.
