Searching Strategies

When searching for dramatic criticism, there are a few key strategies to keep in mind.

If you're looking for criticism of a specific performance:

  • Look for specific actors, directors, and theaters.
  • Remember to account for spelling variations, especially with foriegn names.

If you're looking for criticism of a written work:

  • Look for specific authors, publishers, and titles.
  • Remember to look for related works by the same author, as sometimes works can be compiled and judged together.
