Boston Theater - Welcome to the Stars?

Racing Stars

Jenna Scherer posts her first official review of the new year on the new TimeOut Boston site.

At the top right of the posted review I noticed the 3 star rating, which pretty accurately reflects the content.

Star ratings are pretty standard in the arts and leisure sections of many publications in metropolitan areas, but I'm not sure Boston theater reviewers have so prominently used a star rating, at least not in recent years. (Our movie reviewers almost all do.)
