London Stage Database (Web Resource)
Title: London Stage Database
Author: Mattie Burkert
Author: Todd Hugie
Author: Dustin Olson
Abstract: The London Stage Database website provides access to information about over 52,000 performance events documented in London between 1660 and 1800, based on the reference book The London Stage, 1660-1800 published in the 1960s, as well as a recovery of the related London Stage Information Bank developed in the 1970s. Users can search for specific actors, theaters, play titles, playwrights, and more, or they can download part or all of the data to conduct exploratory analyses. The user interface is designed to make the rich history of this data, as well as its many limitations, intuitively clear to those who interact with the site.
