A play is written to be performed upon the stage by actors. Broadway falls into this category as many of their productions are only available either in stage to movie adaptations (“Into the Woods”, “Rent”, “The Phantom of the Opera”, and “Hairspray” are all examples that have been both movies and Broadway plays).

Shakespeare is also a good example of the play - with many actors having a start in Shakespearean theater or having read a couple in middle and high school. Patrick Stewart (Professor X) and Kenneth Branagh (Miguel from “The Road to El Dorado” and Victor Frankenstein in the 1994 version of Mary Shelley’s “Frankenstein”) are two examples of actors who got their start in Shakespeare. Steward has starred in a 1970s version of “Macbeth” as the titular character, and Branagh has directed many movie adaptations of Shakespearean plays.
