Autograph letter signed: "Veronica Castang", in black ink, 1 page (front and verso), 7x10. March 20, 1979. In full: "Dear Mr. Willis: Thank you so much for your letter requesting a photograph. I enclose one herewith [item not enclosed]. I would be so obliged if you happen to be using any biographical information on me in the future if you would be king enough to omit the year of my birth. I feel that I have reached the age of discretion! Sincerely yours". Veronica Castang (1938-1988) was a British actress primarily working in the United States both on and off Broadway. Her first major role was in the 1966 Broadway play How's the World Treating You? (1966). She appeared in two more plays, The National Health (1974) and Whose Life is it Anyway? (1979), in addition to several minor roles in film. Castang passed away in 1988 due to complications from treating her ovarian cancer. 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. Normal mailing fold. Light surface creases. Corners slightly worn and creased.
