Curtain Up: New York Public Library  for the Performing Arts

The Society of London Theatre and London's Victoria and Albert Museum have partnered with The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts at Lincoln Center to celebrate the extraordinary story of the world's two greatest theatrical districts, London's West End and New York's Broadway in a ground-breaking new exhibition, "Curtain Up: Celebrating Forty Years of Theatre in New York and London". The exhibit will be on view at the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts, Dorothy and Lewis B. Cullman Center, Donald and Mary Oenslager Gallery through Friday, June 30, 2017. 

Curtain Up celebrates the coincidence of two anniversaries of the biggest awards for commercial theatre: 40 years of the Olivier Awards in London and 70 years of the Tonys® in New York. The exhibition explores the craft and collaboration that creates spectacular international theatre and displays a series of costumes, costume designs, set models, film clips, prompt scripts, photographs, and correspondence from plays and musicals that have won (or been nominated for) both a Tony® and Olivier Award, including Phantom of the Opera, In the Heights, Ma Rainey's Black Bottom, A Chorus Line, and more!

Kaufman Music Center Presents "Broadway Close Up: Broadway's One Hit Wonders"
Musical theater is known as the domain of super-talents with strings of hits: Stephen Sondheim, Rodgers and Hammerstein, the Gershwins, etc. Most writers who create one great show go on to create another. But there is a fascinating subset of writers who, for one reason or another, hit it big once and never repeat. Sometimes it's a once-in-a-lifetime idea. Sometimes it's a collaboration that falls apart. Some writers keep trying with diminishing returns, some milk their first big hit for all it's worth, and some walk away to pursue other goals. Of course, some unfortunately pass away too early.

Stories like these are the focus of Broadway Close UP: Broadway's One-Hit Wonders co-presented by Kaufman Music Center and One Day University taking place on Monday, November 14 and Tuesday, November 15 at Merkin Concert Hall. This performance will examine 10 shows - The Boy Friend, Grease, Hair, Man of La Mancha, The Music Man, Oliver!, Promises, Promises, Rent, 1776 and The Wiz - to understand what made them great, and why their creators couldn't or didn't repeat. 

Visit to for more information about Broadway Close UP: Broadway's One-Hit Wonders including ticket prices and specific performers. Kaufman Music Center's Merkin Concert Hall is located at 129 West 67th Street.
