Tim Bano has been appointed joint lead critic at The Stage, as part of a move that sees Mark Shenton become New York critic.

Bano has been reviewing for The Stage since 2015 and will join Natasha Tripney, The Stage’s reviews editor, as lead critic.

Shenton, who was previously joint lead critic, retains his associate editor role alongside his new position as New York critic.

Tripney described Bano as a critic of “real skill, insight and clarity” and added: “It will be a pleasure to work alongside him as joint lead critic. Mark Shenton’s musical theatre expertise is second to none and I look forward to seeing him develop our coverage of New York theatre.”
