Sorry for taking so long to send this out but I'm just getting my paper work together. Yours". Antonio Azito (1948-1995) was an actor and dancer, beginning by training at Julliard. He ultimately dropped from the prestigious program after finding a passion for modern dancing, with his particular style being described as marionette like. He appeared in a number of Broadway plays, with his biggest role being the starring role as The Sergeant of Police in The Pirates of Penzance (1981). He carried the character over into the 1983 film, and acted in several more movies, including Apple Pie (1976), Moonstruck (1987), and The Addams Family (1991).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 Tonyfor Excellence in Theatre in 2001, continues under chief editor Ben Hodges. Normal mailing folds. Corners slightly worn and creased. Lightly toned.
