For many years located at a series of Union Square locations, the last being 18 E. 16th Street, he will henceforth work out of his home office at 43 E. 10th Street. Stoddard's new phone number is (212) 598-9421. In the future, he will conduct most of his business by phone, mail order and website (www.richardstoddard.com). A tightly knit group of theatre professionals and aficionados depend on Stoddard's services. He is perhaps the leading New York dealer in old theatre programs. Stoddard claims to have the biggest stock of Playbills for sale in the world, some 15,000. He is also the sole dealer of the renderings of legendary designer Jo Mielziner and has a side business appraising the estates of theatre artists and companies.
