A letter to John Willis, Editor of Theatre World, asking to make some
changes in her biography in his publication
Autograph letter signed: "Lee Chew", in blue ink, 1 page, 6x9.
December 7, 1985. In full: "Dear Mr. Willis, Here's an 8x10 head shot
to update your files. Thank you for requesting it. It's a small thing, but there
was an error in my bio the last time you included me in "Theatre World" (Volume
35 1978-1979). The bio reads: Graduate VaU. It should read: Graduate VCU.
(Virginia Commonwealth University, Richmond, Virginia). And one more thing...can
you omit the year of my birth? The bio reads: Born Feb. 8, 1949 in Roanoke,
Virginia. Please change that to read: Born Feb. 8 in Roanoke, Virginia. Thank
you. And for the record, I love getting my copy of "Theatre World" each year.
You do a great job! Sincerely". Post script: "Thanks for the free
publicity - you printed my 8x10 back in volume 35 (and my mother was
thrilled!)". Lee Chew (b. 1949) was an actress appearing in The
Bicentennial Baby and The Wanderers. John A. Willis
(1916-2010), active in Theatre World from the beginning, became its chief
editor in 1965, holding that position until 2008. Willis is regarded as one
of the foremost theatre and film historians of the 20th century. While producing
(and presenting) the annual Theatre World Awards, Willis also served on the
nominating committee for the Tony Awards. Theatre World, which
received its own Tony for Excellence in Theatre in 2001, continues
under chief editor Ben Hodges. Light surface creases. Corners lightly worn and
creased. Fine condition.
