How to Cite a Review Using MLA Style

  • Begin with the author of the review.
    His name should be listed in the order last name, first name, middle initial, and be followed by a period. For example, if the reviewer's name is Landley P. Wogbottom, your citation will begin:
    Wogbottom, Landley P.
  • Enclose the title of the review in quotation marks and end it with another period.
    Some reviews may not have a title. If your review does not, then move on. If your review were titled "Horrid Happenings at the Luna Moth Art Gallery," your citation would now read:
    Wogbottom, Landley P. "Horrid Happenings at the Luna Moth Art Gallery."
  • Write, "Rev. of" and then the title of the work, show or performance, followed by the name of the artist, director or author of the work.
    This is vitally important, and if you do not have this information you will need to search online or contact the periodical where the review was published to determine what exactly was being reviewed. The name of the show is not set off by any type of formatting other than proper capitalization, and the author or artist's name should be followed by a period. If the name of the show was "Butterflies in the Trash Heap," by Leonard Kinsman, your citation should now read:
    Wogbottom, Landley P. "Horrid Happenings at the Luna Moth Art Gallery." Rev. of Butterflies in the Trash Heap, by Leonard Kinsman.

  • Wogbottom, Landley P. "Horrid Happenings at the Luna Moth Art Gallery." Rev. of Butterflies in the Trash Heap, by Leonard Kinsman. Garage Art 23 Mar 2004:
  • Finish with the number of the page on which the review was located and a period.
    For example, if the review was printed on page B4, your finished citation should read:
    Wogbottom, Landley P. "Horrid Happenings at the Luna Moth Art Gallery." Rev. of Butterflies in the Trash Heap, by Leonard Kinsman. Garage Art 23 Mar 2004: B4.
