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.

Harold Prince has had one of the most distinguished careers on Broadway. The Playbill Vault lists more than four dozen production credits for him, as a director (Sweeney Todd, Phantom of the Opera, et al.), as a producer (West Side Story, Fiddler on the Roof, et al.) and sometimes as both on the same show (Follies, A Little Night Music, She Loves Me, et al.). However, Prince also has two credits as a performer. Do you know them? Check The Vault under "People" to find out.
