Now in its 69th 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 70 regional theatres - a modern classic in its field. Detailing more than 2 000 productions with over 800 photographs, each entry includes 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, and a detailed index. Highlights of the 2012-2013 season include Cyndi Lauper and Harvey Fierstein's Tony-winning musical Kinky Boots and the successful London transfer of Roald Dahl's Matilda the Musical. Chicago's Steppenwolf Theatre scored Tonys for the revival of Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf and its star Tracy Letts, and Cicely Tyson became the oldest Tony winner in history for her rousing turn in the revival of Horton Foote's The Trip to Bountiful. Pippin scored big with multiple Tony wins for its first revival and stars Patina Miller, Billy Porter, and Andrea Martin, while David Byrne and Fat Boy Slim's Imelda Marcos concept musical Here Lies Love was an extended hit Off-Broadway at The Public Theater. Theatre World continues its tradition of including Broadway, Off-Broadway, Off-Off-Broadway, and Regional Theatre roundups written by accomplished theatre critics.
