Yes I know its a site made for movies but there is no site that lists plays in any database format is there?
Movie Stars do plays too don’t they?

Probably because this would be impossible to keep up to date and accurate. Plays run every day and multiple times on the weekends and the cast could vary on a per performance basis.

There are two websites for plays.

Internet Broadway Database
https://www.ibdb.com/

Internet Theater Database
http://www.theatredb.com/

IMDb also lists theatrical, commercial and other work in a person's (such as  Anna Kendrick)
Biography, Other Works and resumes.
