meCassie Tongue is a freelance arts critic and writer and  media and communications professional in the not-for-profit sector. For five years, she was deputy editor of Australia’s most popular theatre industry website AussieTheatre. 

She writes extensively and in a variety of formats about live performance, particularly theatre, musical theatre, and cabaret across mainstage and independent sectors.

She reviews theatre regularly for Time Out Sydney (and is the author of their first arts op-ed in quite some time) as well as AussieTheatre, and she also writes for The Guardian. Her work has also been published at Daily Review, The Music, and more.  She posts links to her work on twitter and chronicles theatregoing and theatre-reading on instagram.

Cassie is particularly interested in the socio-political reach of theatre, progressive and political performance, queer and feminist performance, and how our worlds intersect with fiction, play, media, and entertainment. She wants to hear your pitch and come to your show, yes you, she’s talking to you; email her here.
