Musical Stage & Screen Chronologies

Compiled by John Kenrick

(Copyright 2002-2010)


The focus of these stage musical chronologies is Broadway musicals -- however, select opening dates for major off-Broadway musicals, as well as select productions in London and other cities are included. Each show is listed with it's title, opening date, theatre, plus (when available) total number of performances and previews.


There have been thousands of musical films in various languages, and it is impossible for us to account for all of them here. This chronology includes over 500 American productions, plus some major British titles. While most are included because of their artistic or commercial importance, a few have been included for the sheer camp value.

If you know of a title that should be added to these chronologies, please write to me.
