A letter from the actor to John Willis, Editor of Theatre World, saying he would love to attend the Theatre World Awards if his dress rehearsals allow him
Autograph letter signed: "David", in black felt tip, 6¼x4½. Included is the original mailing envelope. New York City, New York. In full: "Dear Jack - I'm going to be in dress rehearsals about then for Herringbone but if I possibly can get over to your TWA party...may I? Yours". David Rounds (1930-1983) won a Tony and a Drama Desk Award for Morning's at Seven(1980), his sixth and final Broadway play in a sequence begun with Foxy (1964). (In the intervening years, he appeared in Child's Play (also the 1972 film version), The Rothschilds, The Last of Mrs. Lincoln and Romeo and Juliet. His full-length films included King of the Gypsies (1978) and The Elephant Man (televised from a stage rendition, 1982). His listings in the "soap book" would derive from The Edge of Night (1963-1965) and Ryan's Hope (1977). He also appeared in three episodes of the TV mini-series The Blue and the Gray (1982). 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 and creased. Otherwise, fine condition.
