She informs Theatre World editor John Willis of her Broadway appearance.
Autograph Letter signed: "Lynn Oliver", 1 page, 8½x11. New York, N.Y., 1982 October 4. On personal letterhead to "Dear Mr. Willis", in full: "Thank you for taking an interest in my career. I was very thrilled to see my picture in this year's 'Theatre World'. However, my biography was considerably out-of-date. I have been on Broadway and in regional theatre, since last we corresponded. I hope the enclosed pictures and resumes will help update my credits. [Items not included.] Thanks, again." As she notes in this letter, Lynn Oliver had enhanced her theatrical resume, joining the Broadway cast of Oh! Calcutta! in February 1970, and appearing in The Boom Boom Room with the Joseph Papp Public Theatre (1974). 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. Theatre World, which received its own Tony for Excellence in Theatre in 2001, continues under chief editor Ben Hodges. Lightly creased. Otherwise, fine condition.
