Helen Stenborg (1925-2011) was an American stage and film actress who performed for over 60 years. After growing up the daughter of a dentist in Minneapolis, Minnesota, Stenborg moved to New York City when she was 17 to pursue acting. She debuted in her first screen role in 1947 in the TV movie A Christmas Carol. After meeting and marrying her husband actor Barnard Hughes, Stenborg joined Hughes and the Tenthouse Theatre, touring with the company throughout the 1950's. She later earned screen credits on The Doctors and the Nurses (1962-1965), One Life to Live (1968-2013), and the TV movie Screaming Skull (1973). As her film career gained momentum, so did her stage career. Stenborg made her Broadway debut in the 1970 play Sheep on the Runway. She and Hughes continued to work together on the Broadway stage as well; the couple was in Da (1978-1980), for which Hughes won a Tony award for Best Actor. Stenborg was nominated for a Tony Award for her performance in Noel Coward's Waiting in the Wings(1999).That same year, she was awarded the Drama Desk Lifetime Achievement Award. She made her last stage performance in 2010 in Vigil, for which she received the Richard Seff Award for best performance by a veteran female actress. Theatre World, founded in 1945 by Daniel Blum, is America's oldest annual record of Broadway, Off-Broadway and regional theatre, referenced by industry professionals, historians, students and theatre fans worldwide. Until 1998, when a separate nonprofit corporation was established, Theatre World's editorial staff bestowed the prestigious Theatre World Awards for outstanding Broadway and Off-Broadway debuts. Screen World (from 1950) and Dance World (from 1966), administered from the same office, furnished comprehensive information on those entertainment genres. John A. Willis (1916-2010), active in Theatre World from the beginning, became its chief editor in 1965, holding that position until 2008. Willis is regarded as one of the foremost theatre and film historians of the 20th century. While producing (and presenting) the annual Theatre World Awards, Willis also served on the nominating committee for the Tony Awards. Theatre World, which received its own Tonyfor Excellence in Theatre in 2001, continues under chief editor Ben Hodges. Normal mailing folds. Lightly creased and toned.
