To: "Dear John," in full: "Barring work, or volcanic eruption, I will be delighted to come to your 40th (!) anniversary party. Looking forward to seeing you. Love." Nancy Andrews (1924-1989) was a cabaret singer and pianist before taking the stage with the Beverly Hills Theatre Company. She later went on USO tours during World War II. Moving to Broadway, she won a Theatre World Award for her performance in the comedy "Touch and Go" (1949). Subsequent appearances included a starring role in Neil Simon's Little Me, with Sid Caesar (1962). She played diverse roles off Broadway, including "Aunt Eller" in regional performances of Oklahoma. 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. Normal mailing fold. Edges lightly worn. Otherwise, fine condition.
