UNLOCK THE VAULT: Dec. 25, Christmas on Broadway

News   UNLOCK THE VAULT: Dec. 25, Christmas on Broadway
 
In celebration of Playbill’s new site, Playbill Vault, we offer a month-long theatrical treasure hunt! Playbill Vault offers an interactive treasure trove for theatre fans, students, aficionados and historians alike. To build the Playbill Vault, more than a dozen Playbill staff members spent nearly 18 months scanning, cataloging and tagging thousands of programs from the Playbill archives in Queens and Manhattan, as well as synching up tens of thousands of news stories, photos and videos from 17 years of theatre coverage online on Playbill.com.

Upon the Dec. 1 launch of its beta version, the Playbill Vault includes information on over 10,000 shows and 120,000 actors, creative teams and crew members who have worked or are currently working on Broadway, with content being added on a daily basis.

The week between Christmas and New Year's is often the busiest on the Broadway calendar. Small wonder, then, that 14 Broadway productions have had the word "Christmas" right in the title of the show. Some were different versions of the same story: A Christmas Carol is perennially popular. And, one of them even opened on Christmas Eve, perhaps not surprisingly. How many can you name? Check the Playbill Vault and type in the word "Christmas" to see them all.
