Dawson, an early winner of a Theatre World award, sends Editor John Willis his regrets for the 1973 party.
Autograph Letter signed: "Mark Dawson", 1 page, 5½x3¼, postcard, addressed in his hand on verso, postmarked Jamesburg, New Jersey, May 3, 1973. To "Dear John" [Willis], in full: "I will be out of New York during that week. Wish I could be there. Theatre World deserves only the best. Thank you". Mark Dawson (1920-2007) appeared in 10 Broadway shows, almost all musical comedies and mostly hits, between 1942 and 1972. He won a Theatre World Award for High Button Shoes (1947-1948). Among his other productions were By Jupiter, Fiorello! and Twigs. He appeared occasionally on television over four decades from 1951, and played supporting roles in a few feature films (Heart Like a Wheel, 1983). 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. Toned at edges. Fine condition.
