UNLOCK THE VAULT: Dec. 21, They Were in a Show?

News   UNLOCK THE VAULT: Dec. 21, They Were in a Show?
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.


Over the years a lot of people have trod the boards on Broadway—and sometimes people you'd least expect. All but one of the following names have appeared in shows on Broadway. Look them up in the Playbill Vault to discover what shows they were in -- and who is the one holdout.

Boxer Muhammad Ali
