Photo Coverage: New York Public Library for the Performing Arts Celebrates Yale Rep at 50: Daring Artists, Bold Choices

To celebrate Yale Rep's 50th anniversary season, the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts just unveiled a photo exhibition titled "Yale Rep at 50: Daring Artists, Bold Choices".

Running from January 10 through April 8, the exhibition includes photographs from over 70 productions, featuring some of the American theater and Yale Rep's most distinguished actors, including: Angela Bassett, Colleen Dewhurst, Charles S. Dutton, Paul Giamatti, William Hurt, Samuel L. Jackson, James Earl Jones, Laura Linney, Frances McDormand, Lupita Nyong'o, Jason Robards, Meryl Streep, Courtney B. Vance, and Dianne Wiest. Photographers represented include WilLiam Baker, T. Charles Erickson, Gerry Goodstein, Joan Marcus, and Carol Rosegg, among others.

Yale Repertory Theatre, the internationally celebrated professional theatre in residence at Yale School of Drama, has championed new work since 1966, producing well over 100 premieres-including two Pulitzer Prize winners and four other nominated finalists-by emerging and established playwrights. Twelve Yale Rep productions have advanced to Broadway, garnering more than 40 Tony Award nominations and eight Tony Awards. Yale Rep is also the recipient of the Tony Award for Outstanding Regional Theatre. Established in 2008, Yale's Binger Center for New Theatre has distinguished itself as one of the nation's most robust and innovative new play programs. To date, the Binger Center has supported the work of more than 50 commissioned artists and underwritten the world premieres and subsequent productions of 24 new American plays and musicals at Yale Rep and theatres across the country.
