Potomac Stages Broadway


When the website Potomac Stages ceased publishing in 2010, the Clarice Smith Performing Arts Library at the University of Maryland established an archive to preserve the collection of reviews and news items which had become something of a comprehensive portrait of the region's theater community. The archive only captured the material related to the region, however, and did not include the many reviews of Broadway shows in their New York productions. Here we present many of those reviews.
