Typefaces inside Playbills

Hi,

I’m trying to figure out what some typefaces are related to two different images from the inside of Playbills:

In the first attachment, I’d like to know what typefaces are used for “PRESENT” and “AUDRA MCDONALD” or “BY” and “LANIE ROBERTSON.” “PRESENT” and “BY” look a a little like Sweet Sans, but don’t think that’s it. I don’t know what’s used for “AUDRA MCDONALD” or “LANIE ROBERTSON.”

In the second attachment, it would be great to know what typeface is used for “ACT II,” as well as the info below it related to the the Scenes, Scene Names, Characters, etc. They all look to be the same typeface (bold and roman being the only difference) and I think are standard across most Playbills but don’t know what they are.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

PRESENT and BY appear to be some form of Bank Gothic (though very hard to tell given the tiny size of the sample; when scanning, focus only on the type you need identified and scan as large as possible):

My best guess for AUDRA and LANIE is Trade Gothic Condensed:

The text time is garden variety Times (without a larger size sample, hard to determine whether it's Times, Times New Roman, etc.):

Ok. Thanks. I can't say with 100% certainty, but I'm pretty confident PRESENT and BY are not Bank Gothic, but appreciate the attempt.

tough to tell with the small size and low resolution but PRESENT & BY look a bit like Blair ITC Sandard.
