News   UNLOCK THE VAULT: Dec. 3, Memorable Playbill Covers
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.


Imagine yourself back in February 1949 being asked to design the Playbill cover image for a new drama called Death of a Salesman before it became a classic. What would you design? See what the original artist came up with—along with those of A Streetcar Named Desire, Long Day's Journey Into Night, South Pacific, Annie Get Your Gun, My Fair Lady, and any of your favorites under "Shows" in the Playbill Vault at Playbillvault.com.
