Appendix 9
Seasonal Statistics
This appendix provides annual statistics concerning the total number of productions covered by this volume. It should be remembered that the figures given in the Introduction on page xxi refer to Broadway alone, while those presented here cover both Broadway and Off Broadway. Shows that moved from one venue to another during the same season are not counted twice. (Season=S)
1. Straight plays (P): Full-length (more than one act) comedies, dramas, and comedy-dramas written after 1920 and given their initial production in New York; this applies to foreign-language productions as well as English versions.
2. Musicals (M): Operettas, musical comedies, and comic operas produced in the legitimate theatre (generally, on Broadway) as opposed to those produced by opera companies.
3. Revues (RV): Nonbook musicals, extravaganzas, and ice shows; included are shows centered around a famous musical performer, such as Maurice Chevalier.
4. Dramatic Revivals (DR): Straight plays that had previously been produced in New York or plays never before produced in New York, provided that they were written before 1920.
5. Musical Revivals (MR): Same as no. 4, except for musicals, operettas, and the like.
6. Miscellaneous (MS): Presentations that do not fit in the previous categories, including solo performances.
7. Return Engagements (RE): See the explanation in appendix 9 of the previous volume.
8. Foreign Language (FL): Productions given in foreign languages. The number of foreign language productions are not included in the final totals, although the productions themselves are subsumed under the other categories.
9. One-Act (OA): Programs made up of or including one-act plays.
