Finding reviews for plays can be easy or hard, depending on when the play was produced, because the Lindell Library online newspaper databases start in 1985. For contemporary reviews before then, you have to use old-fashioned print sources. Fortunately we have a few of those.
That is why the sections below are divided between plays produced before and after 1985. Enjoy the research!
For plays produced after 1985, these newspaper databases are great sources for reviews.
For plays produced before 1985, you may need to do things the old-fashioned way — by using print indexes, microfilm, and books of collected reviews.
If you're not sure how to use these resources, don't hesitate to ask a librarian! We can help you find what you're looking for.
