News   Playbill Insider Digital Edition, a Virtual Magazine, Makes Web Debut Dec. 2 The Playbill Insider Digital Edition, an on-line version of the Playbill Insider's Guide — the new monthly theatre guide available throughout the Manhattan area — makes its premiere on the internet Dec. 2.

The web version of the Playbill Insider's Guide, which launched in August 2007, is now available by clicking here. A virtual version of the monthly magazine, readers can flip through the on-line content as they would the printed magazine. The Insider Digital Edition features hot links, embedded video and audio features, so readers can see, hear and link to the shows and stars featured in the magazine.

Among the features in the December issue are interviews with actors Norbert Leo Butz (Is He Dead?) and Natalie Venecia Belcon (The Glorious Ones) and director Scott Elliot and playwright Mike Leigh (Abigail's Party, Two Thousand Years) of The New Group. Each issue also boasts exclusive backstage photos: This month the Guide visits Broadway's Spring Awakening and Off-Broadway's Gone Missing.

The Guide also includes over 140 listings for Broadway, Off-Broadway and Off Off-Broadway theatre as well as a dining guide, maps, family-fare recommendations and a crossword puzzle.

Andy Buck, the Guide's editor-in-chief, says, "In theatre we often talk about the fact that, on any given night, anything can happen. Each month we hope to translate that feeling into the Insider. You never know who will show up in our pages (doing what)."
