50 Years of Pulitzer Prize for Drama Winners: A By The Numbers Infographic

My staff and I got into a conversation at our last Fun Food Friday (every so often, we order pizza on Fridays and shoot the sausage and peppers) all about the Pulitzer.

What kind of shows win the Pulitzer?  Did shows have to play on Broadway to win the Prize?  Who wrote them?  Is there a trend that we could discover that could help all those writers out there that want the coveted award?

And when there are this many questions, that can only mean one thing!


We googled like crazy and crunched up the data and out came the infographic below all about the most coveted prize in Drama.

And now I’m going to shut up and let the infographic speak for itself.

Enjoy everything you ever wanted to know about the last 50 Years of the Pulitzer Prize for Drama!
