Due to changes and historical inconsistencies in program billings, past and current practice may differ in respect to certain billings. IBDB.com makes best efforts to ensure consistency.
All credits and submissions must be verifiable from playbills or other official sources, which the correspondent must provide before any additions to the site are made. Although we may be able to verify some credits through archival files, the ultimate burden of proof is on the correspondent. IBDB.com will not contact third parties on an individual's behalf. Verification may be faxed to 212-944-0524 or sent by post to IBDB, c/o The Broadway League, 729 Seventh Avenue, 5th Floor, New York, NY 10019. Please do not visit in-person, and please no phone calls.
IBDB.com will attempt to respond to all questions and submissions as soon as possible, but we offer no guarantees of the speed at which submissions will be evaluated. Although all submissions are read, we cannot promise that all questions and submissions will receive a response.
IBDB.com currently lists productions and credits for Broadway in New York only. We do not currently list Off-Broadway, Regional, or Touring productions. In certain situations, these credits may be listed in note form on an individual's personal page. These credits are subject to the same verification process as all other credits.
IBDB.com lists all Tony-eligible shows. In some cases, this may mean the inclusion of certain productions that played at theatres technically considered "Off-Broadway" but that were deemed Tony-eligible by the Tony Awards committee (see City Center for one example). IBDB.com does not include other productions at these same theatres that were not deemed Tony-eligible.
IBDB.com may list a one-time benefit concert or special event that takes place in a Broadway theatre, if such production is an established Broadway title or members of the creative team or cast are established within the Broadway community. Not all benefits are included, and they are considered on a case-by-case basis. IBDB.com does not currently list memorial tributes, awards ceremonies, or such annual events as Tony Awards ceremonies, Gypsy of the Year, Broadway Bares, Nothing Like a Dame, and Easter Bonnet Competitions.
