Untitled[edit]

This article should be called "Playbill (magazine)". It doesn't explain what "a playbill" actually is, but it should (see de:Theaterzettel). --AndreasPraefcke (talk) 21:29, 10 December 2007 (UTC)

No, i don't think so in my opinion because there is no other thing called playbill and it is a famous magazine, but that's just my opinion.--BAITT (talk) 01:55, 5 February 2008 (UTC)
I've added a disambiguating hatnote, but I agree with AndreasPraefcke. The basic definition of playbill in the English language is an advertisement or program for a play. That should be Wikipedia's default definition, as the magazine is clearly named for this usage. — Dulcem (talk) 00:41, 15 May 2008 (UTC)
The thing is, when Wiki editors wikilink the word "playbill" in an article, it's almost always referring to this magazine (because they are usually citing something from the publication or its website). Softlavender (talk) 05:19, 22 April 2012 (UTC)

Circulation comprable to time?[edit]

Am i the onlt one who finds this ridiculously hard to believe? Furtermore it says their circulation is 2.6 million, and in another place 4 million. 33% is a significant portion to be off. --Tacit tatum (talk) 02:25, 23 March 2011 (UTC)
