    The Playbill Broadway Yearbook 2012-2013 Season: 9th Annual Edition. Edited by Robert Viagas. Published by Playbill Books/Applause Books. Hardcover, 400 pages. Measures 8.5 by 11 inches.

    Taking the format of a school yearbook, the ninth edition of The Playbill Broadway Yearbook is packed with photos (more than 4,000, many in color) and memorabilia from the entire 2012-2013 Broadway season.

    This edition documents the more than 80 Broadway shows of that season - not just the new shows, such as Matilda, Motown, Lucky Guy, and Bring It On!, but the long-running ones from seasons past, such as Phantom of the Opera, The Book of Mormon, Once, and Wicked. The book features photos of not only the actors - even Sunny, the dog who portrays Sandy in Annie... plus his understudy, Casey - but producers, writers, designers, stage managers, stagehands, musicians, ushers. This year's roster is expected to top 10,000 (human) names.

    There is also a wealth of photos from Broadway insider events, including "Gypsy of the Year," "Broadway Bares," "Forbidden Broadway," and the annual Broadway League softball championship players. For this edition, each production was asked to appoint a member of the cast or crew to report on things only those who worked backstage would know: opening-night presents, who got the Gypsy Robe, daily rituals, celebrity visits, favorite health tips and regimens, memorable ad-libs, and so on. Correspondents range from dressers, doormen, and dancers to, in some cases, the star of the show. The Broadway Shows Included in This Edition are:
