Gifts for Theater Fans
Every Person in New York

For 40 years, a trove of Broadway window cards and posters sat forgotten in a warehouse. Found last year, the 'Lost Collection' is on sale at Triton.

The Untold Stories of Broadway: Tales from the world's most famous theaters (Volume 1) and Volume 2 is a little like eavesdropping on the table next to you at Orso.

And The World Goes Round is a new, non-original-cast recording of the 1991 revue of Kander and Ebb songs.

And then there's the giant in the sky: the Rob Marshall-directed, Meryl Streep-starring movie of Into the Woods. The soundtrack is out December 15. [Photo at top: Peter Mountain]

Along with the best collection of plays and theater-related material you'll find anywhere (outside of the NYPL for the Performing Arts), pick up this Shakespearean Lip Balm Set, $7.95. Shakespeare (who looks to be wearing Uggs) is mint flavored, Hamlet is apple, Macbeth is orange. Where are the women, though? Juliet? Beatrice? Mistress Quickly?

Detractors say Idina Menzel treats every song like a barn waiting to be burned but even they'll concede she's in fine and sweet form on her holiday album Holiday Wishes. She does bring more bombast to Silent Night than the song is accustomed to; everyone survives.
