Finding Dance Reviews in Article Databases
International Bibliography of Theatre & Dance with Full Text
This tool indexes nearly half a million articles and reviews from the late 19th century to the present that cover theatre, dance, and film. To search, in the 'Document Type' field type 'Theater Review' and in the 'Keyword(s)' field type the name of the play or piece.
Performing Arts Periodicals Database
To search, type in the title of the play or piece at the top of the screen. Then, under 'Limit Your Results' in the field 'Document Type' select 'Entertainment Review.' You can also limit the results of 'Year of Publication,' e.g. 1980-2009.
Print Review Resources
This collection of resources is mostly made up of periodicals, which can be especially useful for contemporary reviews. For those periodicals we have only in print, searching a volume released around the time of the performance for which you need a review may be the best approach.
