POTOMAC STAGES -
The Potomac Stages website covered professional and community theater in Washington, DC, Maryland and Virginia from 2001 to 2010. Its archive is publicly available through the University of Maryland and online through the Way Back Machine at this address.
Once on the archives' main page, you can use the black menu bar to navigate to different sections of the site.
The following short cut might be useful for those looking for a review of a particular production: wayback archive
which is a hyperlinked listing of all the companies and venues in the Potomac Region at the time. Click on the listing of a particular company and you will be taken to the page for that theater as it existed when Potomac Stages ceased publishing on January 1, 2010. Click on the link "Click here to see archived reviews for this theater" near the top right and scroll down to the review you seek.
For companies outside of the main Potomac Region, including a sampling of the coverage of Broadway productions (those that were playing at the time Potomac Stages ceased publication) go here.
THEATER SHELF -
From 2010 to 2014 Brad Hathaway’s column Theater Shelf: CDs, Books and DVDs for the Theater Lover was carried on the website DCTheatreScene in Washington DC and on FloridaTheaterOnStage in Miami FL and picked up nationally on BroadwayStars. Since then, briefer reviews have been prepared for the annual Holliday Gift Guide and have been posted to the site. Click here to visit the index to Theater Shelf columns.
