Welcome to our new website. We hope you enjoy exploring our new features. In case you get a little lost – here’s a roadmap.
Where is Their Reviews?
In the gold header bar, hover over Reviews. Two drop-down boxes appear: Our Reviews, an archive of all our reviews, and the one page listing of other reviewers for currently running productions: Their Reviews.
Where is Joel Markowitz’s column?
Joel is a prolific writer. In the Columns section of the gold bar, you will find his Theatre Schmooze, along with our New York columnist, Richard Seff.
Check under Podcasts too. Most of them are done by Joel.
What happened to Onstage Now?
A great deal, actually,
First, it’s now called Find A Show. Here’s how it works:
Hover over Find A Show in the gold bar. You will see 6 drop down boxes. Hover over Onstage. The list of all shows which are either currently onstage or opening soon will appear in the red right hand column. Chances are, it’s a long list. Scroll down the column using the wheel in your mouse. When you see a show that interests you, click on its link, and go to its Show page.
You can see those same shows by location of the venue (MD, VA, DC).
We haven’t forgotten the children. Kids Stages give you those productions produced specifically for children.
And, finally, for all those of you who have written over the last 2 years asking for more info on upcoming shows: we’ve loaded each Show page with everything we think you need to know:
what’s the show about
what it costs
where it is
how to get there
the website for the producer
and our coverage of the theater. (Once we’ve reviewed the show, you’ll be able to see that review by clicking the link just below the company’s website.
That map at the bottom of the Show page is awfully small.
Boy, it’s fun making up these questions! Under the small map is a link that says ‘View larger map’. Do that and you’re in Google™ glory.
I don’t visit the site every day. Can you send me an email when you publish an article?
Okay. No one has actually asked us this. But the answer is that we have an ENewsletter that emails subscribers every day that articles appear. The signup is on our right hand column.
Or you can click the News Feed link at the top of the website to see the last 10 posts, and subscribe to the RSS feed. There’s one there for Comments, too. In case you like to keep up with the conversation.
How to Search:
I’m looking for a particular show
The easiest way to find it is to put the show title bracketed by ” ” in the Search box. Or if we have reviewed it, and you remember which month we published it, drop down to the bottom of the right hand column and click on that month.
I’m interested in one of your writers. How do I find their reviews?
If you see a review they have written, click on their name in red under the show title. That will bring you to his or her archives. or enter their name in the Search box.
I’d like to see what you’ve written about my favorite theatre company.
No problem. The best way is to go to any of our reviews for that company. At the end of the review you will see their name in Tags. Click that.
or if they have a show listed in Find A Show, click on the show, and on the Show’s page, see “Other articles for this company”. Click there.
The Search box will have it too, but will probably bring up every other article mentioning ‘arena’ or ‘constellation’ etc.
I’m looking for a review in City Paper from last month. Where is it?
If you don’t see it in Their Reviews, that means the show has closed. We don’t archive this page. But you can check the original publication. They probably have it archived.
