Launchpad of the American Theater: The O'Neill since 1964


Since its founding in 1964, the Eugene O’Neill Theater Center has shaped the course of the American and world theater, creating standard practices and discovering new artists and new work in every discipline. Through its programs in plays, musicals, puppetry, cabaret, criticism, and an undergraduate school, the O’Neill has launched the careers of some of the most talented artists and most recognizable plays and musicals in the American theater. The exhibition celebrates the O'Neill's 50th birthday and will chart the journey from past to present to future with drawings, interviews, videos, photographs, original scripts, and sound.

Funding for this exhibition is provided by the The Horace W. Goldsmith Foundation, The Educational Foundation of America, and The Gladys Krieble Delmas Foundation.
