Dancer writes to John Willis, editor of Dance World, describing his performance photograph
Autograph letter signed: "Robert Thomas" in black ink. 1 page, 8½x11. April 10, 1974. In full: "Dear Mr. Willis, Enclosed is an eight by ten glossy of me in a performance of "Green Table". I am dancing the role of the "Standard Bearer" behind me is Christian Holder in the role of "Death". This was taken during a performance at the City Center by Herb Migdoll. I hope this will be of use to you in response to your request. Sincerely". Dancer Robert Thomas studied ballet from a young age, and earned from 1964-1967 a highly competitive position in the Harkness Ballet trainee program in New York City. With them, he toured the United States, Europe, and the Middle East. After numerous offers from companies around the world, Thomas accepted a role in the Joffrey Ballet and continued to perform around the world. Him and his wife, dancer Miyoko Kato Thomas, assisted in the creation of the Iowa State Center's Nutcracker and opened their own Robert Thomas Dancecenter. 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. Paper frayed on top. Corners creased. Upper left edge creased. Light toning.
