BEATRICE MANLEY
She sends a short note to John Willis, editor in chief of Theatre World
Autograph note signed: "Dear Mr. Willis,/Thank you for your communication/I hope this photo is o.k./Beatrice Manley-Blau", 1 page, 8½x11. Beatrice Manley (1921-2002) began performing on Broadway in 1942 in her debut in The Eve of St. Mark (1942-1943). She later appeared in The Cherry Orchard (1944), The Country Wife (1965-1966) and The East Wind (1967). While not a popular screen actress, Manley acted in no less than 9 films and television shows, including The Baby (1973) Stranger in Our House (1978) and Bang the Drum Slowly (1973). She was married to theatre director/producer Herbert Blau, and together they co-founded San Francisco Actor's Workshop with Jules Irving and Priscilla Pointer. Theatre World, founded in 1945 by Daniel Blum, is America's oldest annual record of Broadway, Off-Broadway and regional theatre, referenced by industry professionals, historians, students and theatre fans worldwide. Until 1998, when a separate nonprofit corporation was established, Theatre World's editorial staff bestowed the prestigious Theatre World Awards for outstanding Broadway and Off-Broadway debuts. Screen World (from 1950) and Dance World (from 1966), administered from the same office, furnished comprehensive information on those entertainment genres. 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. Normal mailing folds. Corners Lightly creased. Fine condition.
