     "Angela never suggested Anthony, nor did her husband, Peter Shaw," said Arthur Cantor, a co-producer. "Vivian Matalon (who will direct) thought of Anthony――he'd directed him in [[italics]] Bus Stop [[/italics]] in London with Lee Remick. We called Angela and she said, 'I stay out of his career.' Anthony read for us and won out over 35 others."

John P. MacBean sees four or five plays a week――on Broadway, Off and Off-Off. "Theatre is my life," he says.
His favorite vacation: Two weeks in London seeing plays. His five favorite plays: 
[[italics]] Long Day's Journey Into Night, Death of a Salesman, A Streetcar Named Desire, Our Town [[/italics]] and [[italics]] Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? [[/italics]]
     Theatre is vital to his public relations work in the New York Convention & Visitors Bureau. "Journalists come here from all over to write stories about New York, they come to us for briefing and often we send them to shows; this is [[italics]] the [[/italics]] theatre capital of the world. If they don't want to go alone, I go with them."  
     For his tickets and theirs he frequents TKTS. "It's not difficult and it's inexpensive (about half-price)," he says. "People fall for the myths and miss a great joy." His advice: Have in mind two or three shows, go to the one that offers that the best seats, go alone if need be――but go to something.
   "For evening performances I hit TKTS at 47th and Broadway around 6:30 p.m., when the line is shorter. Or I go by subway to TKTS at 100 William Street, which opens at 11:30 a.m., and seldom has a long line, but doesn't sell matinee tickets. I also use twofers," available to anyone at the Bureau, 2 Columbus Circle.
