Pan Am's the hottest ticket to the cities that are home to the world's most acclaimed theaters. So it's no wonder that when 1984 Tony Award winning La Cage Aux Folles came to Broadway, Pan Am was chosen as the first stage of the trip.

At Yale, Mr. Andrews also serves as an Associate Chaplain at Christ Chapel and Senior Pastor of the Black Church.

THE YALE REPERTORY THEATRE is the offspring of the 60-year-old Yale School of Drama, founded by George Pierce Baker and built around his legendary "Playwrights Workshop, Drama 47." That course today remains at the heart of YSD, and resonates in Lloyd Richards's artistic direction of YRT. August Wilson is one example of YRT's commitment to new writers; even before last spring's premiere presentation of Ma Rainey's Black Bottom, arrangements were underway to mount a second play of Wilson's, Fences, on the YRT stage in May of '85. Shakespeare has remained a "resident" playwright each season under Richards's leadership, as has the distinguished contemporary South African, Athol Fugard. The rich personal and professional relationship with Fugard includes premieres of the plays Fugard now calls his "Yale trilogy":  A Lesson from Aloes, 'Master Harold'...and the boys and last season's The Road to Mecca. Extending beyond the English-speaking world, YRT has introduced American audiences to such contemporary authors as Italy's Dario Fo with About Face, Sweden's Lars Noren with Night Is Mother To The Day,  and Bulgaria's Yordon Radichov with An Attempt At Flying. In December of this year YRT will bring Nigeria's Wole Soyinka to New
