She informs editor John Willis that Dance World has made mistakes in her biography.
Autograph Letter signed: "Nanette/Glushak", 2 pages (front and verso), 6x8. No place, 1979 June 4. To "Dear Mr. Willis, in full: "I would, first, like to tell you how much I enjoy your 'Dance World' books. They have always been very helpful and informative. Upon reading the latest edition, however, my husband (John Priaz) discovered some inaccurate information in our biographies. In John's, his birthdate is 1946 (and not 1945) and he was a principal with NYC ballet before Ballet Theatre in 1970. But he never joined the Munich Ballet. In my biography, you state that I debuted with Ballet Theatre in 1967, but I debuted with New York City Ballet in 1970 when John did. We hope that this information can be corrected for next year's edition, and I thank you for your consideration. Sincerely". NANETTE GLUSHAK (b. 1951) has included the early part of her professional ballet career in this letter. Remaining with American Ballet Theatre, she was seen on TV's Live From Lincoln Center in Swan Lake (1976) and Giselle (1977). In 1983, by then remarried to Michael Rahn, Glushak and her second husband became co-directors of the Dallas-Fort Worth Ballet. From 1987, she did much of her performing in Europe, renowned for her mastery of Balanchine's repertoire. Since 1994 she has been Artistic Director of the Ballet du Capitole (Toulouse, France). 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. Toned around edges. Otherwise, fine condition.
