A letter to John Willis, Editor of Theatre World
Typed letter signed: "Thomas Barbour", in blue ink, 1 page, 8½x11. July 13, 1980. New York City, New York. In part: "Dear Mr. Willis: I enclose a current 8x10 glossy, which you asked for ages ago [items not included]. May I take this opportunity to point out a few minor errors in my Theatre World biography? I refer to your 1977-78 issue (vol. 34), which is the latest I have - of a complete file. (I inquired at the Drama Bookshop a month or so ago and was told that vol. 35 had not yet appeared. I hope this doesn't mean that your excellent series has come to an end.)". Actor Thomas Barbour (1921-2005) has appeared on both stage and film, with his first major role being in Broadway's Portrait of a Queen (1968). He appeared in several more Broadway plays, and then went on to film and television, appearing in The Adams Chronicles (1976), A Midsummer Night's Sex Comedy (1982), and Arthur (1981). 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. Surface creases. Small tear on right edge. Corners slightly worn. Toned. Some ink lightly smeared, but legible. Otherwise, fine condition.
