Former Telegraph arts editor Sarah Crompton has joined WhatsOnStage as its joint chief theatre critic.

Holly Williams has also joined the online publication as a new staff critic.

Crompton, who has been a freelance writer since she left the role of arts editor-in-chief at The Daily Telegraph in 2014, will replace Michael Coveney in the role. Coveney left the publication earlier this month after 10 years.

Crompton said: “I am absolutely thrilled to be joining WhatsOnStage and contributing theatre reviews and blogs to its expanding and significant platform. It is a brilliant forum for telling the story of British theatre at a fascinating and vibrant time, and from my point of view fits perfectly with my work for other organisations.”

She will join Matt Trueman as joint lead critic, while Williams – formerly of The Independent and The Independent on Sunday – will work alongside them.

Both will take up their roles immediately.

WhatsOnStage managing director Sita McIntosh said: “I couldn’t be more thrilled to welcome Sarah and Holly to the WhatsOnStage team. To have writers of their calibre join us, alongside managing editor Daisy Bowie-Sell and Matt Trueman, will ensure the company’s position at the forefront of online theatre journalism.”
