Writing Theatre World editor John Willis, she reports that after traveling to Los Angeles on vacation, she decided to stay when she landed a part on Cagney & Lacey.
Autograph Letter signed: "Catherine Way", 2 pages (front and verso), 6x8, No place, 1982 September 8. To "Dear John" [Willis], in full: "Sorry for the delay in sending my picture. [Item not included.] I came out to LA for a vacation after Cloud 9 and after an audition for an episode of Cagney & Lacey got the got the part of Tricia Caswell on that and decided I should stay and give Hollywood a try. It is interesting and very different, a place to make some money and get exposure so that more can be available to me in the East. Thanks for your interest. Sincerely". The Obie- and Drama Desk-winning Cloud ran for 971 performances at the Lucille Lortel Theatre (1981-1983). Fulfilling her hopes in this letter, Catherine Way returned to New York for a Broadway role in Quilters (1984). 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. Lightly creased. Fine condition.
