Has anyone put in their birthdate in IBDB to see what shows opened on that date in history? Anybody have any interesting ones?

5/8- A funny thing happened to me on the way to the forum

Basically the only good one for me.

I'm bored so I just checked mine...

Fiddler on the Roof, A Touch of the Poet, On the Town and Sweet Charity are the ones of note.

Miss Saigon either opened or had its first preview (West End) on my birthday, I don't remember which (I think it was the first preview)

5/10 - nothing too notable opened, but Fred Astaire was born that day.

I remember days
Or at least I try
But as years go by
They're sort of haze
And the bluest ink
Isn't really sky
And at times I think
I would gladly die
For a day of sky

how do you check it? in the opening night search? (it's probably really simple and I'm just being stupid, but I really can't find it.)

You must remember all the same that at the crux of every game is knowing when it's time to leave the table... And it's important to be artful in your exit. No turning back, you must accept the con is done... It was a ball, it was a blast. And it's a shame it couldn't last. But every chapter has to end, you must agree.

Wow..two great juggernauts in theatre history opened on my birthday 8/9. The first one was Divorce in 1871 and the second was the amazing production of the show Tangerine in 1921.

Only one worth noting:

On 9/28/1961, PURLIE VICTORIOUS opened.

I do share a birthday with Gregory Jbara which totally rocks, though.

ah, figured it out now.

well, nothing interesting opened on my birthday (Feb. 23)

but I do share my birthday with Peter Fonda and Robert Lopez (who is the brother-in-law to one of my friends at college) so, that;s cool.
