PEGGY ANNE ELLIS
The actress writes to John Willis, Editor of Theatre World, saying how much she would've appreciated attending a Theatre World party back when she acted on Broadway
Typed letter signed: "Peggy Anne Ellis", in purple ink, 6½x8½. June 2, 1984. Oyster Bay, New York. In full: "Dear John Willis: Attending your 40th Theatre World Awards Party on Thursday, was such a pleasure, that I felt compelled to write and tell you so. How refreshing to see our world of the theatre treated in such a professional manner...and with so much love and respect permeating the air". Actress Peggy Anne Ellis appeared in two Broadway plays (Best Food Forward 1942 and Billion Dollar Baby 1945) and was host for the 1950 television show Country Style. 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. Corners slightly worn and creased. Lightly toned. Otherwise, fine condition.
