Autograph Letter signed: "Dick Dean", 1 page, 5½x4¼. No place, no date circa 1985. Written in red ink on verso of a printed invitation to the 41st annual Theatre World Awards Party. To "Dear John", in full: "I do appreciate your remembering me with this invitation. Through the years, unfortunately, I don't seem to have made it East of La Cisnega Boulevard in several decades. But I do get a bit nostalgic about your card and about waiting in the wings for an entrance in 'Dial M' and the curtain to go up on Plane F & the Tony Awards etc. etc. such as they are these days. Thanks again, Dear John. Not to mention our carting cartons from Danny's apartment to mine". 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 Tonyfor Excellence in Theatre in 2001, continues under chief editor Ben Hodges. Crease on right margin. Corners lightly worn and creased. Faint stain on left margin on verso. Otherwise, fine condition.
