Established in 1981 (as London Theatre Record), Theatre Record has probably the most influential readership - and the most in-depth critical content - of any theatre publication in the UK. It reprints in full all the national drama critics' reviews of the latest productions in and out of London, with full casts and credits as well as production photographs. It carries early information on plans for shows all over the country, months ahead.  Now fully digitised and using a new, very powerful search engine, the whole of Theatre Record's four-decade archive of 52 thousand productions is ready for you to explore.
