SHEPARD TRAUBE
The famed Broadway director sends a letter to Daniel Blum, informing the founder that he should be included in Theatre World
Typed letter signed: "Shepard Traube" in blue ink. 1 page, 7½x10½. Wisconsin, December 23, 1952. On personal letterhead. To "Dear Mr. Blum" In full: "In connection with your annual Theatre World, and for other file purposes, it occurs to me that you may wish to have my history as a producer and director; which I am enclosing. Very Truly yours" At the time of this letter, Broadway and screen director Shepard Traube (1907-1983) had already produced or directed a dozen Broadway plays, including The Stanger (1945), The Green Bay Tree (1951) and Time out for Ginger (1952-1953). A prolific writer and director, he later created Holiday for Lovers (1957), Monique (1957) and Children of the Wind (1973). While he is most known for his stage work, Traube also contributed to film, directing Street of Memories (1940) and For Beauty's Sake (1941) among others. 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. Normal mailing folds. Lightly creased. Otherwise, fine condition.
