Autograph letter signed: "David H", in black ink, 3½x5½ (front and verso). New York City, New York. In part: "Dear John - Thank SO much for your birthday greetings received on the road. Director Crandall Diehl asked if I'd consider playing the tiny role of Zolton Karpathy and stand-by for John Neville's 'Henry Higgins' in this tour of 'Fair Lady' with Christine Andreas and Clive Reville as Doolittle. 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. Corners lightly worn. Fine condition.
