What is The Lion King?" "What is The Phantom of the Opera?" "Who is Andrew Lloyd Webber?" These are just some of the questions one might hear on the May 7 broadcast of "Jeopardy!," the hit syndicated game show hosted by Alex Trebek.
Created by Merv Griffin, the award-winning show is currently presenting its first Million Dollar Masters Tournament, a ten-day extravaganza — May 1-14 — that features 15 of its most memorable contestants from the show's 18-year history. The champion of the tournament will win a $1,000,000 cash prize.
Taped at New York's famed Radio City Music Hall, Playbill® provided special programs for the unprecedented event. By special permission from Playbill Publisher and President Philip Birsh, the Playbill name and logo were also used as a category for the television program. The May 7 broadcast will feature the category PLAYBILL, which will include Broadway trivia.
