Autograph letter signed: "Sam Stoneburner," in blue ink, 2 pages (front and verso), 5¾x7¾. No place, June 14, 1972. To "Dear Mr. Willis," in full: "Thank you for your letter with the enclosed form which reached me at the Anla Theatre while we were doing 'Different Times.' Unfortunately, we closed and now I'm getting ready to go out in stock doing 'Company' for Guber Fard [illegible]. I have completed the form and have enclosed the pictures and hope that I will be able to be included in your Theatre World Publication [items not included]. I am an old fan of all your publications and would love the opportunity of being in one of them every year. I just hope and pray I'll be funky enough to be in some theatrical endeavor for the rest of my life. I really appreciate (I think all actors do) what you are doing in Theatre World. As the member of productions and an off Broadway dwindle each year you are going all over the country getting pictures and information of regional theatres and with productions and its helping so much to let people see how active theatre is. Thank you for your good work and for writing to me. Sincerely." Sam Stoneburner (1929-1995) worked both on stage and on screen, making his Broadway debut in 1970 in the original play Foreplay (1970-1971). He later appeared in Different Times (1972), Bent (1979-1980) and The First (1981). On screen, he is best known for his performances in Love Hurts (1990), JFK (1991), a Woman Named Jackie (1991) and the film adaptation of his most successful Broadway show, Six Degrees of Separation (1993). 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. Small tear in top left corner. Ink note (unknown hand) at top edge. Otherwise, fine condition.
