The new FROZEN UK artwork is much more dynamic than the original Broadway art, from a sales perspective. It makes sense to change it for consistency, along with the new tour material/staging.

This is a really uninspired design.

The rip to cut off the Playbill logo is super interesting. Love this, Company, and Flying Over Sunset

I've never really been a fan of shows that bump their yellow header further down to put graphics on it (Beetlejuice does this very often, and now Company), just because if I ever line up my programs together the headers aren't lined up equally- I kind of wish Playbill had a system that allows shows to merge their own artwork onto the Playbill logo so the proportions stay the same for each magazine. Nitpicky though, I know. The one exception to this is the new Sing Street Playbill- it actually works perfectly and I think it looks incredible, absolutely one of my favorites this season. That being said, I still absolutely adore the Company Playbill with Bobbie sitting down. It's adorable. Just about what I was expecting for Flying Over Sunset, their artwork is also great.

I don't know who is spearheading the graphic design for Mrs. Doubtfire but it's the TOOTSIE of the 2020 season. That program could not be more abysmal if it tried- I just would love to see actual artwork and costumes and photos on my program- blank space is such a pet peeve, and all of Mrs. Doubtfire's marketing has been full of it. It should be fun to look at, right?... I could've made that Mrs. Doubtfire logo in Google Docs in like 10 minutes.

I completely agree with everything single thing you note here. I wish Doubtfire would have made the image of Doubtfire’s back the entire length of the rest of the cover, with a hand reaching up to fix the sideways letters. I also expected the artwork to change between out-of-town and Broadway as most shows usually do, but looks like they’re just taking the lazy route and keeping it the same.

Beetlejuice announced they are holding a fan art contest to design another of their monthly exclusive playbills for the month of May. See their IG for details: https://www.instagram.com/p/B8t2kBOpd4S/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link

LOVE the new frozen one! Also in love with Company!! Sing Street is cool, and Mrs. Doubtfire isn’t exciting at all. Hope they change that to something else. My only thing with Company (and Sing Street) is that I don’t like it when there are faces of the actors on the playbill. What if understudy(s) are on? That’s why I don’t like it, but still really love it at the same time.

I like the Company Playbill. It didn't give me that MUST HAVE feeling of seeing the new Moulin Rouge and Frozen covers but it very effectively communicates what the show is about which is more than I can say for a lot of these designs. 

Mrs. Doubtfire is barely trying. I would not be surprised if they change it. 

Somehow I always forget Roundabout sticks to B&W and I'm always disappointed. No one ever seems to plan for a design that looks good in B&W.

Is it on my end or is literally none of the images loading, but the Woolf one? I have tried multiple devices and browers, all with the same error.

I’m having the same problem. I wish it was the other way around, because I do not like the Woolf playbill.
