Trac ticket # 2146

A "theater" release is a recording of a work for the theatre involving music, songs, and/or spoken dialogue, occasionally also including dance. Typically these works are of a musical nature, but they may also be dramatic or comedic in nature.

Applicability

This guideline specifically applies only to non-opera theater releases. Opera, non-musical theater film and television soundtracks, and video game soundtracks are covered by different style guidelines. Depending on the release, classical style or audiobook style also may be more appropriate. A modified form of Live Bootleg Style may also apply, in addition to this guideline.

Examples

Applies:
Studio recording of a musical theater work
Recording of a filmed musical theater work; Theater soundtrack style overrides soundtrack style.
Live bootleg of a theater cast with a known performance date.
  • Exclude the colon that Live Bootleg Style would normally require.
  • If the city is easily identifiable (e.g. Toronto, London, Paris, New York, etc.), other location information may be excluded.
Live bootleg of a theater cast with an unknown performance date, where only the performance season is known.
Does not apply:

This guideline does not apply to compilations of songs from different shows being sung by a one or more performers, unless the songs are compiled as part of a theatrical revue.
