UNLOCK THE VAULT: Dec. 15, The Wizard and I

News   UNLOCK THE VAULT: Dec. 15, The Wizard and I
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 Playbill Vault doesn't just list who's on Broadway now, but replacement casts from throughout the Broadway run. Sample the "People" section of the vault by seeing all the actresses (with photos) who have played Elphaba, Glinda and other roles in Wicked. Click on this link to see the original cast and click "Replacements" to see who followed each of them into the roles.
