James Mitchell (1920-2010) is best remembered for his role as Palmer Cortlandt on the television soap opera All My Children (1979-2010). The role earned him seven Daytime Emmy nominations. The winner of a 1947 Theatre World Award for his performance in Brigadoon (1947), Mitchell appeared on Broadway stages for over thirty years in several musicals including Billion Dollar Baby (1945-1946), Livin' the Life (1957) and Mack & Mabel (1974). 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. Lightly toned. Fine condition.
