The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts' newest exhibition, “Focus Center Stage: 50 Years of the Theatre on Film and Tape Archive” will open on July 14 at the New York Library for the Performing Arts at Lincoln Center and run through February 25, 2023.

The exhibition, which will span two floors, will showcase excerpts from the many Broadway, Off-Broadway and regional theater productions that the division has filmed since its founding in 1970.

It includes interviews and dialogues with important theatrical figures, rare photographs from the behind-the-scenes work of some of the talented artists dedicated to creating theatre productions, as well as a remembrance of TOFT founder Betty L. Corwin, who convinced The New York Public Library, the theatrical unions and guilds, and creative artists, to realize her vision to record live theatre performance for future generations.
