James Karen (b. 1923) is an American character actor. As a young man, Karen was encouraged to be an actor by U.S. Congressman Daniel J. Flood, who was an amateur thespian himself. Flood recruited him into a production at the Little Theatre of Wilkes-Barre. Karen went on to attend the Neighborhood Playhouse School of the Theatre in New York.His big break came when he was asked to serves as an understudy to Karl Malden in the original Broadway production of A Streetcar Named Desire. On television he played Dr. Burke on As the World Turns (1956-2010) and was the original Lincoln Tyler on All My Children (1970-2011). However, he is perhaps best known for his recurring role on the television series Eight Is Enough (1977-1981). Karen's notable film credits include The China Syndrome (1979), Poltergeist (1982), The Return of the Living Dead (1985), Wall Street (1987) and, more recently, The Pursuit of Happyness (2006). 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 Tony for Excellence in Theatre in 2001, continues under chief editor Ben Hodges. Normal mailing folds. Gently creased. Lightly toned at edges.
