Always excited for the start of a new season!

Maybe it’s me. Anyone else feels like this looks like an ad for the Gap?

You know summer’s coming soon when Greased starts this thread!

I love the hot pink font on the black background. It reminds me of Hedwig’s logo! I just kinda wish the guys didn’t look so cult-y.

New Playbill Pride artwork is a sad downgrade.

Yeah I was just about to say this! I much prefer the design of the old Pride Playbills. I liked how it used to be a clear representation of the Pride flag.

Eh, Pretty Woman is too clipart-y. Also I really want Second Stage to hire a new graphic designer.

I'm not sure how well Head Over Heels applies to the show (not having seen it) but I like it from a design perspective. It grabs your attention and it's a memorable logo. I wish they could keep the pride banner because it really works for that Playbill.

The Melissa Benoist Beautiful cover is ridiculous. It looks like they just slapped her headshot on there.

Will Straight White Men change given the actor change? It's not my favorite regardless.

Who did they get to pose for Pretty Woman. Those silhouettes don't look exactly like Kazee and Barks but maybe there was some photoshopping. It's pretty much the movie poster except in the red dress. Did the movie ever do promo where she wore the red dress?

Getting the Band Back Together. Sure. I mean, I'm not going to see it but this is a perfectly fine cover.

@Mods, I think there's something wonky with this thread. It won't let me scroll all the way to the bottom of the page without automatically looping me back up to the top. (Am I the only one experiencing this glitch?)

I had this issue too, and I have before a couple of times. Usually, when more posts are made on a thread, it stops. Much like this one has, at least for me.

It looks like one of the posts had something wonky (technical term) in it. Our programmer cleaned it up, and should be all set now. Thanks for flagging for us.

Out of curiosity, did anyone actually get a Straight White Men Playbill with Skerritt on the cover, or had they cut down to just the three brothers before performances started?

I went the first weekend and Skerritt was pictured on the cover.

Would someone mind posting the new covers? Bernhardt/Hamlet, Lifespan, Waverly.

Can't seem to get this to work from my phone.

Actually, there was a brief period where Arndt was on the cover (and credited in the Playbill). That's what I got when I went July 8th, even though he had already left the production by then.

Playbill Vault shows neither one of these iterations on their show page though.

The Waverly Gallery is rather pretty. Overall though, these most recent covers are lackluster.

Yeah, The Nap's playbill cover and Lifespan of a Fact's Playbill cover are quite lackluster in that they don't necessarily show anything about what the shows are about! But I guess it makes sense why Lifespan of a Fact has that cover, because STARS!!!

I do like the "Janet McTeer serving Shakespearean-realness" cover for Bernhardt/Hamlet, and The Waverly Gallery's cover is nice and warm and opulent (especially compared to some of the covers of the musicals this season...)

I'm assuming Waverly will switch to a production shot like all the other Rudin productions.

I wish Nicolette Robinson's Waitress Playbill was full color. Still, I love the photo they picked.
