This computerized index to the eleven-volume The London Stage, 1660–1800 (Southern Illinois University Press, 1960–68), makes accessible in one vol­ume all the information about the plays, persons, and places as they appeared in each theatrical performance over the span of 140 years covered by the work. Twenty-five thousand entries contain over 500,000 references to the 8,026 pages of the monumental series.

The Index thus provides direction for following the careers of hundreds of ac­tors, actresses, dancers, and musicians in the Restoration and eighteenth century. In addition, the Index demonstrates what a wide-ranging document for so­cial, economic, legal, artistic, and dra­matic history The London Stage, 1660–1800 is. At a glance, the Index points to the variety and richness of a broad range of London life in the period covered as it impinged on, supported, or drew sustenance from the theatres.

A research tool of considerable magni­tude, the Index makes available to stu­dents and scholars in a wide range of disciplines the vast resources of The Lon­don Stage, 1660–1800. Without doubt, it is a foundation on which scholars will build for years to come.
