TIP 1: Keep in mind that it can be difficult to find reviews of specific plays unless they were covered in the local media. For example, it's often easier to find reviews of plays in cities recognized for theater, like Chicago or New York, versus smaller venues that did not receive much press.

TIP 2: Try searching for the subject heading "Stage History" in Library Catalog Search and then a keyword from the title of a play, like Midsummer. You can get information about plays that might be useful to your work.
