The International Bibliography of Theater and Dance database in GALILEO includes PDF full text for The Sondheim Review (a quarterly journal on Sondheim and his works) from 2004 to the present. Type “sondheim review” in the “Publication” box to restrict your search to this publication. Or search the entire database to find something specific (e.g., “sondheim AND assassins”).
