CELEBRATING OUR LEGACY Exhibit will Celebrate Women in Theatre this Spring

The League of Professional Theatre Women, in association with The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts, presents CELEBRATING OUR LEGACY: Oral History Photographic Exhibit of the League of Professional Theatre Women.

The exhibit, open from March 8 – April 28, 2012 in the Library's Plaza Corridor Gallery, The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts Dorothy and Lewis B. Cullman Center, commemorates the women who have been recorded as part of the Theatre on Film & Tape collection at The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts at Lincoln Center.

The League of Professional Theatre Women, which celebrates its 30th Anniversary in 2012, is pleased to collaborate on this exhibit with The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts. The League will honor the oral history legacy which, since 1992, has documented an outstanding array of women, all of whom have contributed to contemporary American theatre. The Library for the Performing Arts' Theatre on Film & Tape Archive is the repository of this extensive documentation of the more than 100 women who have participated in this ongoing series of individual oral histories, videotaped before a live audience.

The exhibit is free and will be open to the public.
