The stage actor writes a thank you letter to John Willis, editor of Theatre World
Autograph letter signed: "Peter DeMaio" 1 page, 5x8. No place, unknown hand pens the date "April 4, 1973" in lower margin. In full: "Dear Mr. Willis, Here is the picture you requested for your files. Thank you for your interest. Sincerely". Peter DeMaio (born in Hartford, Connecticut) is an American stage and screen actor who made his Broadway debut in 1954 in By the Beautiful Sea. He later appeared in Billy (1969), Indians (1969-1970), The Changing Room (1973) and The First Breeze of Summer (1975). On screen he has very few credits, but was featured in the films A Private Battle (1980) and Finding Graceland (1998). An acclaimed dancer and singer on the stage, DeMaio was nominated for a 1974 Joseph Jefferson Award for his performance in Play it Again, Sam. 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. Lightly creased. Fine condition.
