Introduction

'Stage One' - Roberta Livingstone

Have you seen a Shakespeare production you would love to review? Are you a scholar, actor, student or passionate theatre-goer with a penchant for writing? Searching for reviews of the most recent Shakespeare production at your favorite theatre? On this section of the Internet Shakespeare Editions, you can contribute your reviews or read stimulating reviews by established scholars and members of the acting community.

The ISE Performance Chronicle is a unique new platform for Shakespearean performance criticism. It provides, for the first time, a dedicated online space in which theatre practitioners, scholars, critics and members of the public can analyze and interactively discuss contemporary Shakespearean performance. The Chronicle has a dual purpose. First it aims to raise current awareness, understanding and enjoyment of the diverse ways in which Shakespeare is performed in venues around the world in the twentieth, and early twenty-first century. Second, over time, the Chronicle create a substantial and permanent database of informed criticism for future historians, scholars, actors, theatre-goers, and students of Shakespeare in performance. We are especially proud to announce that such distinguished journals as Cahiers Élizabéthains, and EMLS (Early Modern Literary Studies) are permitting the “pre-publication” of reviews that will be published by them.

On the Chronicle you will find reviews of stage productions and recent films. You can

  • browse or search the reviews
  • post a review
  • post a comment on a review
  • rate some of the reviews
  • subscribe to receive email notification for a new review of a particluar play
  • search reviews for specific information.

To post a review, to add comments, or to rate some of the reviews, you will need to register as a visitor to this site, then log in as a user. You will see the “Login” link at the top right hand of the page.
