Music Theatre Online (originally the Electronic Broadway Project) was launched in March of 2010 to coincide with the launch of the Glory Days cast album by Ghostlight Records. The announcement of the site was frequently tweeted and picked up by the web-based crowd-edited digital humanities publication, DH Now. The annotation code has been adapted by the Chymistry of Issaac Newton project at Indiana University, the audio linking tool has been used for a Danny Kaye web exhibit currently being developed at the Library of Congress, and the project was the basis for a new grant application by the project staff to Scholarly Editions Program at the NEH. Although that application was not funded, grant reviewers acknowledged that the project staff had demonstrated technical expertise and remarked that “It is attractive that the project materials are to be made available free of charge on the web in the Music Theater Online archive.” The site was widely praised by the Twitter-verse, and has been visited by users from around the globe (including England, Australia, and Japan).
