How do I cite the review of a performance?

When you cite a review of a performance, provide the details for the review, not the performance. As always, follow the MLA format template. List the name of the review, the title of the review or a description in place of a title. Then provide the publication details for the review, as shown in the following example:

Harss, Marina. “Shantala Shivalingappa—Akasha—New York.” Dance Tabs, 12 Oct. 2019, dancetabs.com/2019/10/shantala-shivalingappa-akasha-new-york/.

Note that although the review in the above example notes the location and date of the performance (Joyce Theater, New York, 9 Oct. 2019), these details are not included in the entry because the review, not the performance, is cited. If the details of the performance are important for your reader to know, provide them in the body of your paper or in a note.
