Typed letter signed: "Joe", in black ink, 7x7¼. New York City, New York. In full: "Dear Dan, Here are the "Jennie" scene, plus some portraits. On D.J. SULLIVAN would you put this photo in and add to his resume that he has appeared in San Diego, Old Globe Theatre, and now is with Tyrone Guthrie in Minneapolis, Minn. The photo of Neil Jones is also enclosed. He is in "Hello Dolly" as one of the leading dancers and is a terrific talent. Yours". Joe Abeles (1908-1991) was a theatrical photographer, working on Broadway between 1961 and 1978. Forming his own photograph business with Talbot Studios in 1935, Abeles eventually joined with Leo and Sy Friedman to form Friedman-Abeles studios. During his career, he snapped photographs of many budding actors and actresses, including Jane Fonda, Dustin Hoffman, Bette Midler, and Christopher Walken. 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, also furnished comprehensive information on those entertainment genres. Toned. Staple holes in top left corner. Corners slightly worn and creased. Light surface creases. Otherwise, fine condition.
