Yesterday just seems to have been a banner news day, also bringing us a report from Ephemeral Archives’ favorite theatre critic, the Guardian’s Chris Wilkinson.  In his latest Noises Off column, Wilkinson points us all in the direction of a new online resource, Theatricalia, which he describes as being “a kind of IMDB for theatre.”  Possibly it may have been more accurate to describe this new venture as an attempt to become the IBDB or Lortel Archives of UK theatre productions, but we are grateful to be made aware of this site all the same and promise to explore it further.

A savvy respondent to Mr. Wilkinson’s piece also directs readers to the London Theatre Database as a useful source of information for recent productions.
