Search tips

The Library of Congress uses Theater as a subject heading for "works on drama as acted on the stage. Works on facilities used to stage drama are entered under Theaters. Works on drama as a literary form are entered under Drama."

Note that databases may use similar terminology to mean different things.

American English spelling is typically "Theater" but the use of the British spelling - "Theatre" - is widespread in the US. 

Be aware of these differences when developing a search strategy.
