THOMAS A. CURRIE
Actor representative sends John Willis, editor of Theatre World, information about actor Frank Andre
Typed letter signed: "Tom Currie" 1 page, 8½x11. May 27, 1968. New York City, New York. In full: "Dear Mr. Willis: At long last I enclose a photograph and biographical information of my client FRANK ANDRE which you requested relative to your forthcoming edition of Theatre World. Mr. Andre and I regret the long delay in sending this to you, but we preferred sending you this new portrait as opposed to his former ones. Too, we were hoping to send you a rather marvelous production shot taken from "Who's Who, Baby?" in the hope you might be able to use it, but rather than delay any longer, we'll merely forward it when we locate it with the hope you will be able to use it. If you receive it within the next two weeks, might there still be time for you to consider using it? I would appreciate your so advising me./ Currently Mr. Andre is appearing in previews of "Now" which opens next week at the Cherry Lane Theatre. We would be pleased to have you see the show as our guest and if you will phone me I'll be pleased to arrange for your tickets. If I may be of any further assistance, do not hesitate to contact me. Sincerely". Frank Andre (b. 1942) was an actor who appeared in the Broadway shows Brigadoon (1963) and We Bombed in New Haven (1968), as well as the off-Broadway productions of Who's Who, Baby? (1968) and Now (1968). Artist representative Thomas A. Currie worked at Bauman, Redanty & Shaul talent agency, which represented Andre as well as many other different actors and actresses. 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. Paper clip indent on the upper-right corner. Slightly creased corners.
