Looking for any peer-reviewed article about modern critical response to Arthur Miller's "The Crucible" (No, I'm not asking you to do my homework, trust me.)

I have access (through my university) to most of the scholarly journals out there. I want to do some work with my high-school students about how criticism of "The Crucible" has changed from when it premiered on Broadway in 1953, to how it is revered as a classic today, by giving them a contemporary review of the play (I have several), and then a modern article or essay about how the play grew from living in the shadow of "Death of a Salesman," to being revered as one of the classics of American theater. I didn't think this kind of piece would be difficult to find; apparently, I am so very wrong (or I have the worst journal database-searching skills known to man).
If anyone can point me in the right direction, I'd appreciate it. You're not creating my lesson plan, or determining what I'll be doing; you're just helping me find an item I want to use.
