John O'Hara is a Philadelphia-based actor and director, nominated for a Barrymore in an Act II Playhouse production of Harry Chapin: Remember When the Music. His plays, many of which premiered at the Theatre Arts Centre (Bucks County, Pennsylvania; and Queens, New York City) include Cinderella: The Untold Story, The Emperor's New Clothes, and Pirates of the Amazon. He is no known relation to novelist John O'Hara. 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. Large mailing fold. Light surface creases. Slight adhesive residue on verso. Envelope worn on corners and edges. Otherwise, fine condition.
