"Theatre World Volume 69" is out!
So proud and excited to produce this wonderful event again and this time with Theatre World Award winner Andrea Martin! http://www.broadwayworld.com/article/Andrea-Martin-and-Seth-Rudetsky-to-Appear-at-2015-Fire-Island-Pines-Literary-and-Theater-Weekend-20150817
The 8th Annual Fire Island Pines Literary and Theater Weekend will feature two-time Tony and Emmy Award-winner Andrea Martin (slated for Broadway's upcoming produection of NOISES OFF) and Emmy nominee and theatre multihyphenate Seth Rudetsky, in performance and signing copies of their latest publica…
Theatre World Volume 69: 2012-2013 will be out (pub date) October 24, 2015. As you can imagine, with the tumult in the publishing world, as well as the voluminous amount of material we cover (and increasingly comprehensive with respect to regional theatres, etc.) With the demise of Best Plays as well as the sui generis nature of our publication, the delay is really because as the only comprehensive guide now to the whole of the American theatre we are striving to be as complete and accurate as possible and therefore takes a bit longer. But we hope to get more current.
We're a little delayed but Volume 69: "2012-2013" will be out in May or so 2015...then hopefully a little faster next go 'round!
Forgot to post my interview this past August with Dave Lefkowitz...

So proud to once again be producing this wonderful event:
Donna McKechnie, beloved Tony-winning original 'Cassie' joins in a celebration of the upcoming fortieth anniversary of the creation ofA Chorus Line at the annual Fire Island Pines Literary and Theater Weekend, a hugely popular event held annually at The Madison Fire Island Pines.
Thanks to Dave Arlen and "The Hour" for the great review of "Theatre world 68: 2011-2012"
The theater may be the only industry that constantly regurgitates its past. What worked? What failed? What should be revived? Where did we go wrong or, we pray, right? At hand, two new books that chronicle the ups and downs of the Fabulous Invalid.
"Theatre World Volume 68: 2011-2012" will ship July 8th!
"Theatre World" Editor in chief Ben Hodges will be on KDHX St. Louis' "Break A Leg" show discussing "Theatre World," etc....please listen if in the area!

"Theatre World" Volume 68 will be released May 2013!!!
Celebrating its 68th year, Theatre World remains the definitive annual record of the American theatre—the most complete record of the Broadway, Off-Broadway, Off-Off-Broadway, and regional theatre seasons. The trend of movies being turned into successful musicals continued on Broadway, with Once winning the Tony Award for Best Musical and its star Steve Kazee taking home the Tony for Best Actor in a Musical, while Disney’s stage adaptation of Newsies won the Tony for Best Score. The hilarious 2011 Pulitzer Prize winning Clybourne Park took home the Tony for Best Play, and Mike Nichols picked up his ninth overall Tony for his direction of Death of a Salesman, which also won the Tony for Best Revival of a Play, starring Philip Seymour Hoffman as W***y Loman. Audra McDonald made history in becoming the only African-American actress to win five Tony Awards with her stunning performance in The Gershwins’ Porgy and Bess, while Broadway newcomer Nina Arianda performed like a pro to win the Tony for Best Actress in a Play for David Ives’ Venus in Fur. James Corden was a surprise Tony winner as Best Actor in a Play for his tour de force in Richard Bean’s British transfer One Man, Two Guvnors, and Broadway veterans Judy Kaye and Michael McGrath showed how to get it done in Nice Work If You Can Get It, nabbing Tonys for Best Supporting Actress and Actor in a Musical, respectively. Off-Broadway, Richard Nelson’s Sweet and Sad, opening (and set on) the tenth anniversary of 9/11 won rave reviews at the Public Theater, as did Tribes, Nina Raines’ strong ensemble piece that continued the recent run of David Cromer’s successful plays at the Barrow Street Theater. Regional theatres continued to herald Broadway fare, with Tony winner Newsies debuting at New Jersey’s Papermill Playhouse and End of the Rainbow premiering at the Guthrie in Minneapolis, with its star Tracie Bennett eventually winning a Theatre World Award as well as a Tony nod for her portrayal as legend Judy Garland.

Congratulations to our sister publication, "Screen World," also now published by Theatre World Media and distributed by Hal Leonard Corp., on the rave review its getting in the Feb. 1st edition of "Library Journal."
Screen World. Vol. 62: The Films of 2010. Applause: Hal Leonard. 2011. c.412p. ed. by Barry Monush. illus. index. ISBN 9781557837875. $49.99. REF
Monush’s annual survey consistently reminds readers that compelling films are produced outside Hollywood’s glittery epicenter. Of course, he doesn’t shun blockbusters and devotes significant coverage to Oscar-winning films like The Social Network and best-picture nominees like Black Swan. Indie and foreign films also enjoy the spotlight, each represented by a black-and-white still, plot synopsis, and listing of cast and crew. Additional segments profile promising new actors, top box office stars and films, and Academy Award notables, and provide obituaries. A worthwhile summary of 2010 productions for film studies collections.
