News   A Guide to the New Playbill.com – Finding Your Way Around
The redesign of our website has been a passion project for everyone at Playbill, and we are excited to finally share it with you.

Our new site was designed with our readers in mind. The goal was to create an exciting and streamlined web experience that was easy to navigate. Our new digital platform makes it simpler for you to find and engage with more of the content you love.

Finding Your Way Around

The "hamburger" dropdown menu at the top left corner of our homepage is your map to the familiar content you have come to know and love from Playbill. Here you will find a list of our recurring columns and features including Diva Talk, Their Favorite Things, Seth Rudetsky's Onstage & Backstage and more.

Our resources and insider info, including Rush Ticket Policies, Broadway and Off-Broadway show schedules, Seating Charts, Discounts, Grosses and much more, are also located here.

The new Playbill.com is also fully responsive, delivering a vastly improved mobile and tablet experience to our readers. No matter how you visit us – desktop, mobile or tablet – you'll have a unified experience.

A question we often ask ourselves is, “How do we capture the excitement of live theatre in the stories we tell?” Our new site allows us to surround the robust array of content we publish with larger images, photo galleries and video that immerses visitors in a media rich experience.

We are dedicated to bringing our readers the latest news as it breaks.

The Latest News is now located in a permanent module on the right side of the homepage that displays in chronological order as news happens. This module will follow you as you scroll further down the homepage, so you'll never miss out on a breaking story.

Readers also have the option of clicking News in our top navigation, which will take you to a robust news section that has been curated with the latest and most popular need-to-know news.

Finding more of the content that interests you is easier than ever before!

Each article is surrounded with related content that allows readers to learn more about their favorite shows and stars. To help you explore even more, we've created an infinite scroll that allows you to keep reading the next article without having to click.
