How do I add a production to the list?
If you cannot find the performance you want to review, you can ask for it to be added to our database. You will need to know the most important things about the performance – the names of the company, the director, and the main actors. If you have your program from the performance this will give you the information you need.
To request the performance, go to the page for reviews of the play you have seen by selecting it from the pull-down menu on the left of the screen and clicking “Go". Then click on “Add a review". On this page, you will see more pull-down menus for selecting the company and the production – and under these menus you will see a link “click here to request [a production]". This link will take you to a page where you can fill in all the necessary information and submit it to our Assistant Performance Editor. You will receive confirmation that it has been added with in a few business days.
When you receive the confirmation, you can go back to the site and write your review.
