Hey All-

We've been hard at work here on a big new addition to BroadwayWorld.com that I wanted to give our message board users a sneek peak at. It's in "BETA" at the moment, which means that there are things we know aren't finished/working yet and things we don't.

All feedback / questions / problems / solutions, please PM me or email me @ robert@broadwayworld.com.

Now -- the news (and the link!)

Before clicking below, make sure you're logged into the site. This current preview/test period is for members only.

https://www.broadwayworld.com/bwidb/

The BWIDB is the largest theatre database on the net, covering Broadway and beyond. Quite literally - the whole world of theatre.

We've launched this beta version of the BWIDB already including over 75,000 performers and over 12,000 productions. Those 12,000+ productions were presented in more than 1300 theatres and in over 150 cities! But this is just the tip of the iceberg. We are actively increasing the size and scope of this database to ensure that it's your #1 resource for the history of theatre.

Please bear with us as we continue to collect and verify new and existing information within the database. We encourage you to contribute - just use the easy submission forms located throughout the site.

Happy Exploring!

Big thanks to Cary, Charlie, and the rest of the team who is / have been slaving night and day!

WOW.
I am a firm believer in serendipity- all the random pieces coming together in one wonderful moment, when suddenly you see what their purpose was all along.

It's pretty good. But there's still no database that includes national tours. You might wanna jump on that.

this is great. I just keyed in the first obscure off-bway show I could think of and there it was. Much better that IBDB!
