I wish Moulin Rouge looked a little more fun and flashy but otherwise it's fine. The movie has such a strong style, it's hard to go wrong with the art.
Moulin Rogue is okay, it sort of reminds me of the old Tootsie one. No actual artwork, just the show's logo slammed in the middle of the program. Sort of boring, preferred Boston to this. On a totally different note, when do we get to see what this year's PRIDEbills are going to look like?!? I'm SO EXCITED!
I don't know if I love or hate the Slave Play one. I think I like the simplistic design, but they kind of over use it. I get they don't want to give people too much of the play from the marquee/programme, just it doesn't show much of what the play is.
I wish the Betrayal was in color.
I get that Betrayal wants to sell their name talent but I'm not sure why they went with headshots where the actors clearly weren't in the same room at the same time. Slave Play is... a choice. I don't know if it's just my laptop but it's hard to focus my eyes. The combination of the colors and the way the words are barely outlined and that odd alignment is visually unpleasant. I don't know if that's intentional or bad graphic design.I actually really like the font for The Rose Tattoo but it feels like another Roundabout cover that was somehow designed without the acknowledgement that it would be in B&W. The background image on the bottom half is pretty indecipherable.The Sound Inside makes a bold choice. I like it. I'm still not sure I want to see the actual play because it just sounds too depressing.
Not Broadway, but here's an exciting one!
I feel like that's too light for little shop of horrors, and not really the vibe of the show at all.

I actually like the Slave Play Playbill too, but don't really care for Betrayal (like someone else noted - acknowledge the theme at least a little?) or the Rose Tattoo (too literal). These seem far too lazy to be Broadway playbills.
Rose Tattoo suffers from being in black and white. I believe Roundabout only does B&W playbills but man if that was in color I think it'd look so cool! And Slave Play is bold, just like the play itself seems to be. Good choices all around while nothing really stands out either. The Sound Inside is easily the best Imo.

I didn't even notice what the shadow was depicting until I read what you wrote. The stark white makes it feel like it's happening in the dentist's office and all the background colors aside from the title are too desaturated. I would darken that shadow and the mouth of the plant. And maybe change the font but that's personal preference. I do like the blood. It's a more subtle take on the campy style that's been used in the past, likely to evoke the B movie tone.
