Guide to Finding Reviews


How a play is received can be studied by researching the critical reception of the playwright or play in addition to performance reviews. You can look for scholarly articles published shortly after the play was produced, or at different stages during the life of the playwright. Use the same indexes (below) that you use for finding criticism, but limit your search to specific dates.

Key terms to use in searching are reception, reputation, or appreciation.
