Playbill On-Line welcomes Terri Paddock, our new London Correspondent. She will be keeping Playbill On-Line readers up to date on the latest theatre news from the United Kingdom.
Terri has been editor of London's Performing Arts website What's On Stage since June 1997. She's worked in journalism and public relations for six years and harboured a love for the theatre for much longer than that.
A keen theatre-goer, she has manned the box-office and concession stands at fringe venues in London and her native Washington D.C.
In addition to writing for What's On Stage and Playbill On-Line, Terri writes regularly on a variety of subjects for several UK national newspapers and consumer magazines.
