UNLOCK THE VAULT: Dec. 26, Pulitzer Prize Winners

News   UNLOCK THE VAULT: Dec. 26, Pulitzer Prize Winners 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 first Tony Awards were given in 1947, nearly three decades after the advent of the first theatre awards still given: the Pulitzer Prize for Drama. Over the years some of our greatest American dramas won the prestigious award, including Death of a Salesman and A Streetcar Named Desire, and even a few musicals, including South Pacific and A Chorus Line. To see a complete list of the Pulitzers, including the winners from the past decade, visit the "Awards" section of The Playbill Vault, and choose "Pulitzer Prize" on the pulldown menu marked "Awards Organization."
