To "Dear John [Willis]", in full: "How simply lovely to find the photographs waiting for us on our return from Europe! I tbink they're lovely & such fun to keep, & so sweet of you to send them. We've been in London & Paris for six weeks but now its back to the house, & the garden which is a jungle! It's good to get back to that kind of reality though. John & Jennifer send much love, as do I." English actress Rosemary Harris (b. 1927) made her West End debut in The Seven Year Itch in 1952, her Broadway debut Troilus and Cressida (1956). In between she appeared in her first film, Beau Brummel (1954) Harris, who trained at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts and the Old Vic, won a Tony as Eleanor in The Lion in Winter (1966) and no less than four Drama Desk Awards between 1972 and 1985. She won an Emmy for Notorious Woman on Masterpiece Theatre, and earned an Oscar nomination for Tom and Viv (1994). She has lived for 40 years in North Carolina with her husband, writer John Ehle. Their daughter is noted stage and screen actress Jennifer Ehle. 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. Torn at fold. Otherwise, fine condition.
