The stage actor writes to Theatre World founder Daniel Blum, thanking him for attending a recent performance
Autograph letter signed: "Jim Oyster" in black ink. 2 pages, 5½x7. New York City, New York, postmarked August 25, 1954. Accompanied by unsigned, hand addressed envelope. In full: "Dear Mr. Blum, I was delighted to learn you attended a performance of "The Cretan Woman.' I hope you enjoyed it as much as we enjoyed doing it for you. Certainly we are most lucky to have such a long and successful run during these hot months. I thought the enclosed photograph might interest you as it was done by Daniel Bernstein who did the pictures for the front of the Theatre. Best wishes,". Jim Oyster (1930-1998) debuted on Broadway in 1957 in the original comedy Measure for Measure. Later he performed in Hostile Witness (1966), The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie (1968) and Who's Who in Hell (1974). His last performance, Holiday (1995-1996), premiered in December of 1995 at Circle in the Square Theatre. 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. Creased. Fine condition.
