Prominent stage actor sends John Willis, editor of Theatre World, a colorful update on his work
Autograph letter signed: "David H." in red ink. 1 page, 8½x11. Original envelop included. August 23, 1976. In full: "Dear Mr. Willis - How very kind of you to continue to communicate your good wishes on another anniversary of the date when I began my "1st Act"!! Am having much fun and some satisfaction doing "Irene" and "Night Music" here in Milwaukee. Earlier in my summer Jane and I "did" Hawaii and Kenleyland with "Irene" and I had 6 weeks at Studio Arena with "Night Music" and tho I haven't added any new roles to my repertoire - I've met some super folks and enjoyed where I've been. I feel like we're sort of pen pals! I must arrange to be in New York one of these years for your annual celebration. I seem to have your kind invitations forwarded to me as I travel hither and you after the event has taken place! I want to share with you a few pieces that touched me when I read them. Continue doing what you do it surely works. A universal law seems to be, you get what you give, therefore you must experience much satisfaction from your life. Let your good times roll". David Holliday (1932-1999) was an American actor of stage fame, most well-known for his role in Man of La Mancha (1965) as the day matinee version of Don Quixote. However, this was not his only role, as he appeared in several other Broadway and off-Broadway plays, including a starring role as Tony in London's West End version of West Side Story. Stage work was truly his passion, and it showed, earning a number of nominations and wins for his work, including four wins for Carbonell Awards for Best Actor in a musical. He never made many screen or film appearances, though he did appear as Vigil Tracy in the television series Thunderbirds (1965). Sadly, Holliday passed away in 1999 from cancer. 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. Edges and corners frayed and worn. Toned. Lightly stained. Otherwise, fine condition.
