Description: 4 pages, 6.5 x 5.25 inches, New York, April 3, 1935. This letter (signed "Tony Guthrie") was written to noted theatrical agent Harold Freedman, sending appreciation for being invited to a wonderful Broadway play, in small part: "...Thank you very much in enabling me to see 'The Old Maid'...the settings, the dresses and lighting were exquisite. I don't know when I have seen anything that was so satisfying an experience...I was mightily impressed with Ms. [Judith] Anderson...was disappointed in the play...thought it slow and repetitious and far too sweet until the cast scene of all - where J. Anderson completely 'got' me..." Much more excellent content. Receiver's stamp on the first page does not detract. Very good condition.
Comments: British playwright, director, and producer who greatly influenced the revival and interest in traditional theater in the 20th century; "The Old Maid" premiered on Broadway in 1935 and starred Helen Menken and Judith Anderson.Signed: Y
