Now celebrating its 70th year, Theatre World is the only comprehensive annual pictorial and statistical record of the American theatre season from coast to coast: Broadway, Off-Broadway, Off-Off-Broadway, and complete listings for more than 60 regional theatres a modern classic in its field. Detailing more than 2,000 productions with more than 800 photographs, Theatre World contains entries that include cast lists, replacements, producers, directors, authors, composers, opening and closing dates, song titles, and plot synopses. Theatre World also features the year's obituaries, a listing of all nominees and winners of the major theatrical awards, the longest-running Broadway and Off-Broadway shows, a listing of national tours, and a detailed index. Highlights of the 2013-2014 season include Neil Patrick Harris in his Tony Award-winning Broadway debut in Hedwig and the Angry Inch , Audra McDonald's history-making sixth Tony Award as Billie Holiday in Lady Day at Emerson's Bar & Grill , and Breaking Bad 's Bryan Cranston in his Tony-winning turn as LBJ in All the Way . A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder narrowly beat out Beautiful: The Carole King Musical for the Best Musical Tony, but Jessie Mueller took home a Tony for her portrayal of Carole King. The subversive Heathers: The Musical was a hit Off-Broadway, as was the Barbra Streisand send-up Buyer & Cellar with Michael Urie of Ugly Betty fame. Regionally, I and You at California's Marin Theatre won rave reviews and awards for playwright Lauren Gunderson. Theatre World continues its tradition of including Broadway, Off-Broadway, Off-Off-Broadway, and Regional Theatre roundups written by accomplished theatre writers.
