Print Resources

Online sources are great for finding reviews.  But not all publications that review theatrical productions are available electronically.  This is especially true for older issues of a journal or magazine or for one that has ceased publication.  Print indexes can help you find citations which you can then use to request a review through Document Delivery Services.
