UNLOCK THE VAULT: Dec. 1, A Theatre By Any Other Name

News   UNLOCK THE VAULT: Dec. 1, A Theatre By Any Other Name
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 musical Bonnie & Clyde opens tonight at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre. The Schoenfeld was known for many years by another name, during which time it hosted the Broadway debuts of the likes of The Odd Couple, Equus, The Skin of Our Teeth and The Heidi Chronicles. Do you know the theatre's original name, when it opened and when it changed? Look it up under "Theatres" on the new Playbill Vault at Playbillvault.com.
