Christina Benneworth: Senior Music and Movie Editor
Christina has been working for Backstage Pass since April 2012, at first taking on the role as a music reviewer. Since then she has written reviews for a vast number of artists, including Jay-Z and Kanye West, Kelly Clarkson, Andrea Bocelli, Guns N’ Roses and many more. Proving she has the ability to write for different genres of music she has since taken on the role of Senior Music Editor. Recently the movie section has been added to the website and Christina has been reviewing the latest movie and DVD releases, one of her feature articles about Motown, was retweeted by Sony Pictures. Christina has therefore taken on the role as Senior Movie Editor. When Christina isn’t watching movies, at gigs or writing she also works in the PR world and when she isn’t working she can be persuaded to make a mean cocktail!


Lisa Davidson: Scotland Editor 
Lisa Davidson is Backstage Pass’s main representative in Scotland. A lifelong musical theatre and music fan, her eclectic taste in music means she is as happy at a Springsteen concert as a Westlife one and she's seen over 30 different musical theatre productions on the West End, Broadway and on the touring circuit in the last few years.

A self-confessed repeat attender to shows, she generally gives most a second chance to redeem themselves although there have been a few exceptions to that rule! Before joining Backstage Pass she was a regular presenter at the UK’s number one independent theatre podcast MusicalTalk where she interviewed many talented performers including Oliver Tompsett, Julie Atherton and Broadway star Anthony Rapp.

Her highlights of the shows that she has reviewed for Backstage Pass are Ghost the Musical, Goodnight Mister Tom and The 39 Steps.

Star Ratings for reviews are as follows:

1 - Terrible - give it a miss

3 - Adequately Average - does exactly what it says on the tin, worthy of a look
4 - Loved it - well worth seeing, great night out
5 - Out of this world - best thing since sliced bread!
