JAN MINER (1917-2004) was an American actress, best known for her television commercial role of Madge in a series of long running Palmolive commercials. Before her commercial fame, Miner performed in the production of Viva Madison Avenue! (1960), and went on to act in eleven more Broadway plays, though one never officially opened. Her commercial series with Palmolive began in 1966 and continued until 1992, with the commercial running in six different countries. 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. Light surface creases. Slightly toned. Fine condition.
