News   UNLOCK THE VAULT: Dec. 27, Happy 99th, Cort Theatre
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.


Broadway's Cort Theatre celebrates its 99th anniversary this month. Currently home to Stick Fly, the Cort is one of the few Broadway theatres never to have changed its name. Visit the "Theatre" section of the Playbill Vault to see a list of the shows that opened there, photos of the playhouse, the theatre's longest run, highest gross and other details.

Among the biggest hits to open at the Cort were The Magic Show, Sunrise at Campobello, The Diary of Anne Frank, The Rainmaker, Room Service and Boy Meets Girl.
