Brief letter to Theatre World editor John Willis, thanking him for his interest
Autograph Letter signed: "Susan Willis", 1 pages, 8½x11. New York, N. Y., 1980 February 10. To "Dear Mr. Willis", in full: "Thank you for your interest. Enclosed please find a recent photograph that you requested. [Item not included.] Continued success. Cordially". Susan Willis, born Susan Crobaugh in 1925, played 23 different Shakespeare characters over her stage career, so she would probably not wish to be remembered for her final film role: a zombie in Dr. S. Battles the Sex Crazed Reefer Zombies (2009). A character actress, she filled that niche in some major Broadway plays, including Cabaret (1964) and Oliver! (1984). She made her feature film debut in 1970 (Faye Dunaway's Puzzle of a Downfall Child), and made supporting appearances in several TV shows, including Sex and the City and all three Law & Order series. 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 Tony for Excellence in Theatre in 2001, continues under chief editor Ben Hodges. Multiple mailing folds. Lightly creased. Fine condition.
