PLAYBILL Magazine is devoting this special edition to the Tony Awards, which will be presented Sunday, June 1 at Minskoff Theatre and televised live on CBS at 9 p.m.

Though relatively few shows, performers, directors, designers, writers, etc. will be deemed "The Best," we believe the Tonys have come to symbolize the vitality, excitement and creative effort that characterize Broadway.

In addition to articles and features relating to the Tony Awards, this issue contains another MASTER THEATRE QUIZ composed of eight questions scattered throughout this edition of PLAYBILL on pages 10, 12, 22, 24, 28, 56, 64, 69. All the answers can also be found somewhere in this magazine (some obvious, some carefully concealed).

The rules for the MASTER THEATRE QUIZ appear on the Official Entry Form bound elsewhere in the magazine. You may write your answers on this form, or, if it's gone, print or type answers on a 3" by 5" paper along with your name and address. Mail entry form or paper to PLAYBILL Magazine Theatre Quiz, 71 Vanderbilt Ave., Suite 320, N.Y., N.Y. 10169-to be received no later than June 27, 1986. winners, who must have correct answers to all questions, will be selected in a random drawing from all entries received. (See Entry Form.)

First prize is a playgoer's dream-two tickets for the B'way show of your choice each year for the rest of your life! Two second prize winners will each enjoy a pair of tickets to a show of their choice, plus pre-theatre dinner or after-theatre supper for two, including pre-selected wines, at New York's legendary Four Seasons restaurant.

The Antoinette Perry Tony® Award for distinguished achievement in the theatre is a registered service mark owned by The American Theatre Wing
