The actress writes to John Willis, Editor of Theatre World, apologizing for not attending the Theatre World Gala due to some minor surgery
Autograph letter signed: "Leora Dana", in black ink, 7¾x5 open flat, 4x5 closed. Included is the original mailing envelope. May 28, 1981. New York City, New York. In part: "Dear Mr. Willis - Please forgive me for not sending you my RSVP in time to reach you before your Gala Party. As you will have gathered, I was unable to attend (it is 4:30 pm now and I am in Roosevelt Hospital for some really minor surgery - getting out tomorrow A.M.!)". Actress Leora Dana (1923-1983) performed on stage and screen, with her Broadway debut being the 1948 play The Madwoman of Challiot. Two of her Broadway roles were critically received; A co-starring role as Alice Russell in The Best Man (1960) which was nominated for a Tony, and Elizabeth Edwards in The Last of Mrs. Lincoln (1972), which won her a Tony. Although she worked on screen and film as well, most of the roles were minor, excluding a role in the 1958 film Some Came Running. 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. Surface creases, especially at top and bottom edges. Edges slightly worn and frayed. Corners lightly worn. Otherwise, fine condition.
