Applause Theatre & Cinema Books is pleased to make this venerable continuing series complete by publishing Theatre World Volume 63. Theatre World remains the authoritative pictorial and statistical record of the season on Broadway, Off-Broadway, Off-Off-Broadway, and for regional theatre companies. Volume 63 features Duncan Sheik and Steven Sater's Tony Award-winning Best Musical Spring Awakening, which also earned a Theatre World Award for actor Jonathan Groff. Tom Stoppard's The Coast of Utopia captured the Best Play Tony Award, as well as Tonys for featured actors Billy Crudup and Jennifer Ehle. Frasier star David Hyde Pierce returned to his theatre roots to capture a Tony for Kander and Ebb's Curtains, and other highlights of the season include the Off-Broadway musical In the Heights as well as Passing Strange, which debuted at the Berkeley Repertory Theatre. Both have since transferred to Broadway and become critical and popular hits.
