Autograph Letter Signed: "James Cahill", 1 page, 6½x10¼. New York, 1971, December 16. On personal letterhead addressed to "John Willis/Theatre World," in full: "Dear Mr. Willis, I got your letter yesterday at Chelsea and here is my latest picture (taken this summer at Cincinatti). It's a great honor to be in your book and if you like I'll be sure to forward you any new portrait I have taken, in the future. No fear tho of being swamped with a lot of unwanted glossies, since - what wit the cost and the anxiety - I get shot as little as possible. Yours truly,". James Cahill (b. 1940) is an American stage actor with a career ranging from 1957-1992. He made his debut in the 1957 original production of Measure for Measure. During that same year, Cahill appeared in a comedic revival of The Taming of the Shrew. Over the next thirty-five years, he appeared in eight more productions including Narrow Road to the Deep North (1967), The Man Who Came to Dinner (1980), The Marriage of Figaro (1985), and City of Angels (1989-1992), which is his last known onstage appearance. 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. Fine condition.
