Theatre World Award-winning actress writes to editor John Willis, thanking him profusely for the honor of the award
Autograph letter signed: "Marti Rolph" in blue ink. 2 pages, 6½x12½. May 22, 1975. San Francisco, California. In part: "Dear Mr. Willis, Please forgive this long silence, but I was unaware that I had received the Theatre World Award until this morning, when my mail was forwarded to me from New York. At present, I am in San Francisco, California, playing "Eileen" in Wonderful Town for the Los Angeles & San Francisco Civic Light Opera, so I will be unable to attend the cocktail part on Thursday evening. However, I will be there with you in spirit. Needless to say, I am very thrilled and truly honored to be a part of the tradition of the Theatre World Awards. Every year since I discovered Theatre World I have poured over its' pages with excitement. And now, to be honored in this way, means a great deal to me. It is wonderful to know that someone besides my parents and my best friends think I did a good job in "Good News". Thanks to you I guess I can now be "an actress" (who has teaching to 'fall back on') rather than "a teacher" (who is temporarily in the acting profession). Thank you very much for making my day, my week, and my month! I wish I could be there to celebrate, but I hope I will be able to meet you and chat a bit when I return to New York in September. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Fondly". Actress Marti Rolph has appeared in various stage productions both on and off Broadway. Most notably, she appeared in the original Broadway production of Follies in 1971, and later appeared Good News (1974). 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. Edges and creases worn and frayed. Normal mailing folds. Toned. Otherwise, fine condition.
