Celebrating its 64th year, "Theatre World" remains the definitive annual record of the American theatre season - the most complete record of the Broadway, Off-Broadway, Off-Off-Broadway, and regional theatre scene. "Volume 64" features Harvey Fierstein's "A Catered Affair", starring Faith Prince, and Tracy Lett's moving "August: Osage County", the latter part of a strong season for original dramas on Broadway. It was a season also rife with stellar revivals, including "Sunday in the Park" with George; "South Pacific"; "Come Back", "Little Sheba" with S. Epatha Merkerson; "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof" with James Earl Jones; and "The Country Girl", directed by Mike Nichols and starring Morgan Freeman and Frances McDormand. Off Broadway, both "Passing Strange" and "In the Heights" were a sensation and moved to Broadway. "Mask", at the Pasadena Playhouse, and "True Life Tales", based on an Internet blog and produced by Balliwick Repertory in Chicago, made splashes on the regional scene.As always, "Theatre Worlds" outstanding features include: an expanded section of professional regional productions from across the U.S
; the longest running shows on and off Broadway; full coverage of the Theatre World Awards for Broadway and Off-Broadway debuts; and expanded obituaries and a comprehensive index.
