The Broadway stage manager writes to John Willis, Editor of Theatre World, congratulating him on his "present activities" at Theatre World
Autograph note signed: "Bob Crawley", in blue ink, 1 page, 8½x11. November 29, 1966. New York City, New York. In full: "Dear Jack - Congratulations on your present activities. May "Theatre World" et al go on forever! I'm sorry not to have seen you at the City Center, but I did appreciate your note. I'm off shortly to take over stage-management of "Philadelphia, Here I Come" for the national tour - Then I return to England to prepare Emlyn Williams' next one man show "Dylan Thomas, a Boy Growing Up" which we will tour in this country during the 1967-1968 season. Good to hear from you - keep up the good work. Yours". Bob Crawley (b. 1917) was a stage manager and performer, beginning in the theatre scene as an actor. His first credits to Broadway are acting roles, including a role in Montserrat in 1949, but by his next stage work in 1954's Ondine, he had made the switch to stage manager. He continued in this capacity for years, working on nine more Broadway plays and various off Broadway productions with his last known credit being the 1984 Nureyev and Friends. 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. Heavy paper clip crease on top margin. Fine condition.
