PATRICIA ELLIOT The actress praises the Theatre World Award party in this letter to John Willis Autograph Letter signed: "P." in black ink, 1p, 7¼x10. New York City, New York, 1980 July 3. Written on personal letterhead. Original envelope included. In full: "Dear John Willis - And I love you, my dear! So sorry, once again, I was so late! But what an afternoon - of joy - in being with the loving family you've helped so tenderly to create! I'm not going to do Medea - (as I told Ed Cell last week) - I just can't get inside the lady's "being" right now in my life: give me the joy-ful, joy-filled ladies! But what a perfect completed circle of a day! Many thanks again for inviting me to celebrate the theatre year with you, my friend - May peace, love & light bless & surround us all". Post script: "Many thanks for the 3 Books!!! They are an Award themselves!". Patricia Elliot (1942-2015) began acting in 1968, making both her first notable stage appearance (King Lear) and her first film appearance (The Green Slime) in minor roles. She would go on to star in a number of plays, including her Tony Award-winning performance in the Stephen Sondheim musical A Little Night Music (1973). Throughout the 1990s she performed in several TV movies such as Men in White (1998) and The Ladies (1987). Elliot is perhaps best known for her recurring role as Renee Buchanan in One Life To Live (1968-2013), which she maintained from 1990 until 2011. 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 folds. Light surface creases. Otherwise, fine condition.
