    Default Bigshow

    I'd like to know if "Bigshow" is an individual critic or a newspaper or a wrestler.

    10 Critics’ Reviews - 3.4 Average

    Daily News

    Jekyll & Hyde
    is fun but not perfect. Even though it catches the eye and ear at every turn, its flow is not smooth. Despite some problems in plot, the musical was enjoyable, overall. It delivers great energy to the audience.


    BigShow


    Overall,
    Jekyll & Hyde is the most beautiful thriller with its memorable songs which you will remember for a long time.
    As Emma, Linda Eder is better than any other actress.

    Well, BigShow is probably not the famous wrestler since his name is Big Show, not BigShow. What do you mean by an individual critic? I doubt there's a critic out there who's name is BigShow. What is BigShow then? There's no way to tell. It could be a magazine, a newspaper, a podcast, a radio program or something else.

    It's probably a magazine or some other publication, like the 'Daily News' appears to be, but google is no help.

    It's probably either a local newspaper or an independent reviewer. As Rover said, Google doesn't help in this case. I Googled for the entire first sentence of the review but the only hit was this thread so wherever that review came from, it wasn't posted online. Where did you take the entire quote from, Keannu?

    It's from a highschool textbook, whose source I don't know, either. The lesson starts like this, and it's about the review about a play, Jekyll & Hyde.

    The Battle Between Good and Evil JEKYLL & HYDE
    Good and Evil, two different human natures inside of a man
    Dangerous love and a mysterious game with beautiful melodies
    Amazing ticket sales and attendance records
    The most splendid show that only the best of the best actors could be in!
    Jekyll & Hyde is the story about a doctor whohas been working on a top secret experiment for years. Dr. Jekyll has always believedthat a person has two separate personal characters–one person is good and kind, and the other person is mean and evil.

    If the whole thing was in a textbook, it's entirely possible that the author invented all the critics' names. While I'm sure there is a "Daily News" in many cities in the world, it's also a very generic name which the author might have simply used to indicate that it was a newspaper.
