Finding literary criticism

Two Question Form

Finding reviews of productions: The New York Times

  • First, find out when the play premiered on Broadway.
  • SMC offers a free subscription to the online New York Times to every student, faculty, and staff member -- so take advantage of this and sign up for your account!
  • Then, use the New York Times online to search for the title of the play.  You'll get a lot of results!
  • Use the "Date Range" function on the left-hand side of the results page to limit your result to the specific year that the play was premiered in New York.  That way, you'll find reviews of the original production, not any newer revivals.
  • Ask A Librarian if this doesn't work, or if you need help!
