I picked this up today… there’s more at his site (including another half of this article).
Everyone in the theatre likes to read Theatre World, the annual report of shows on Broadway, Off Broadway and in regional locations around the country. Originally founded by Daniel Blum, it was taken over by Willis in 1965 when Blum died.
Willis stayed in charge of Theatre World until his retirement in 2008 (it is now edited by Ben Hodges.)
I must say that one of my favorite treasures on my bookshelf is the Theatre World which lists Ride The Winds, the show Berta Walker and I produced at the Bijou Theatre on Broadway in 1972. The fact that we we appeared there made me feel like a legitimate theatre professional.
John Willis died on Friday in Manhattan. He was 93.
Gee… I sure would.

And these are the people who have the same responsibilities as a US President, no?
