Actress and sister to playwright Arthur Miller signs a letter to John Willis, Editor of Theatre World.
Autograph letter signed: "Joan Copeland", in blue ink, 1 page, 7x10¼. May 24, 1977. In full: "Dear Mr. Willis, Here is my first new photo in several years [item not included], which explains why I haven't replied to your past requests for current photos. I'm told that in your newest issue you don't have mention of my doing "Pal Joey" (Vera Simpson) at Circle in the Square on Broadway season 0f 1976. That was immediately followed by Allen Swift's "Checking Out" at the Longacre. I am also starred in the forthcoming film "Roseland" to be released this summer, and plan to be "Mrs. Anna" in "King and I" in Belgium later this summer! Cordially, Joan Copeland. P.S. I was nominated by the Drama Desk for "Outstanding Actress in a musical for Pal Joey". Sister of famous playwright Arthur Miller, Joan Copeland (b. 1922) is an actress of stage fame with a career spanning 60 plus years. Her first Broadway performance was in the play Sundown Beach (1948) as Nadine, and she would continue to appear on stage with 12 more Broadway credits to her name, including two starring roles. One of these roles, in 1981's The American Clock, would win her a Drama Desk Award. Copeland eventually made the transfer to television in the 1950's, making minor appearances in daytime dramas and series, and eventually had a recurring role as a judge on Law and Order (1991). Most recently, Copeland has taken a few roles in voice acting, voicing Tanana in Brother Bear (2003) and Mamma in the video game Mafia II (20111).
