The Index to South African Theatre and Media Critics, Commentators and Reviewers includes all who have worked worked in South Arica as one or more of the following: arts journalists, columnists, commentators, critics and reviewers.

For a summary description of the context to the listing below, see the general overview article: Theatre, Media and Performance Criticism and Research in South Africa in this encyclopaedia

See also the listing for Index to South African Theatre and Media Researchers and Historians.

Please note that the terms such as critic, reviewer, commentator and arts journalist are often used rather broadly and interchangeably in South Africa, as are the terms theatre researcher and theatre historian. Some people often work in a number of these fields simultaneously, so the two listings will inevitably overlap with to some extent.
