    Does anyone know of a site(s) where you can read reviews of Broadway plays of the past? I'm looking for reviews from the 40s and 50s primarily.

    Thanks NY. I couldn't get the link to work. I did go to www.ibdb.com directly though. It's a really informative site. However, I couldn't find any reviews, just show listings, actors, etc. I'll keep looking, maybe I just haven't found them on the site yet.

    Thanks again.

    OK I think I hit gold. I found my first Review. Suffice to say, I'm not sharing it, they said that "He appeared to perform as though clubbed over the head... etc...etc...etc" Anyway, put the title of the play you are looking for in the search box.
