What is now Review: The Journal of Dramaturgy was for many years the LMDA Review and before that, for three early issues, Program Notes, and initially, simply, Literary Managers and Dramaturgs of the Americas: Newsletter, Vol. 1, No. 1, 1986. Over the years, the Review has included essays, interviews, conference announcements and reports, interviews, transcripts of speeches, and organizational business (elections, bylaws, initiatives, awards, and so forth). On some occasions, multiple issues appeared in a single year; in others, none at all. In 1996 and 1997, volume 8.1 appears twice, an error in numbering that suggest to some extent the precarious history of its existence. Nevertheless, between 1986 and the present, a remarkable series of editors, associate editors, and authors with the assistance of several dedicated LMDA administrators published over fifty issues of the Review. They offer an album of snapshots not only of the ongoing life of an organization committed to cultivating, developing, and promoting the fields of dramaturgy and literary management but also into the field itself. This record of dramaturgical history in the Americas is housed at the University of Puget Sound’s Archives and Special Collections (Adriana Flores, archivist). Special thanks to Puget Sound Associate Library Director and Theatre Liaison librarian Lori Ricigliano for bringing the Review online. Our entire archive of past Review issues can be found on the University of Puget Sound's website here.
